Toddler talk 2

I remembered another one. This was quite a while ago, more than a year, Claire must've been only 2 yrs old. We were leaving a shopping mall parking lot when she spied a female security guard:

Claire: Why got girl policeman?
Mum: That's a security guard.
Claire: Girls cannot be policeman.
Mum (thinking this was a good opportunity to promote gender equality): Why not? Girls can be policewomen, security guards, soldiers, anything they want. Girls can do anything boys do.
(Thoughtful pause...)
Claire: Can girls shee shee standing up?
Mum: *silence*
