He, She or It?

Amie (my four-year-old) struggles with gender pronouns (he, she, him, her, etc.).  I’m forever correcting her.  Last night I think I discovered the reason.

Me: “Amie, is John a boy or a girl?”

Amie: “John boy.”

Me: “Is Amie a boy or a girl?”

Amie: “Amie boy.”

Me: ?  “What?”

Amie: “Amie boy!”

Me: “No, Amie is a girl.”

Amie: “AMIE BOY!!”

Me: “Is Mama a boy or a girl?”

Amie: “Mama girl”

Me: “Okay.  Is Maggie a boy or a girl?”

Amie: “Maggie girl”

Me: “What about Abbie?”

Amie: “Abbie boy”

By this time I was laughing rather hard.
