Now, are details an inherent girl thing? Cate (age 5) and Margaret (age 3) notice everything. One day I was with my sister and they noticed her Tory Burch reva ballet flats and said "oh, Dee Dee has those but hers are a different color". Or when they saw my friend was carrying a Louis Vuitton bag they pointed it out and asked why I had not worn mine in awhile. Or the one day I switched up an outfit w/a hot pink raw silk sash that I usually wore with a particular green dress. "You wear that one with your green dress not your blue dress." Or if I forget my slender headband they immediately point it out and get it for me. Or when Cate pointed out that my underwear was too "small" - because they were thongs and she asked why hers were not like that. Pretty hilarious.
Are men (generally speaking) more into the big picture and women the details? I know that for sure I'm one for details. LOVE THEM. The more detailed the better. That is why I love books so much more than movies (that are based on books) - I crave the descriptions!
