I’m sharing a visual progress report and a bit of family history. 
Minnie, on the left, wearing a delicious pink and white crimplene top accessorised with ribbons was always a ‘he’. Always.  Winnie on the other hand was a ‘he’ but according to family legend,  I insisted he had to wear dresses. After a while everyone got used to this idea and Winnie could become her true self. She did have ears  once upon a time but we never mention her surgical procedures. Well, it’s just not something polite families talk about is it?
