Why am I not allowed to go to the market?
Why can I not go to school like brother? Oh right, because I'm a girl and we're not allowed to go to school.
The climate here in the Mid-Atlantic colonies is so mild that my husband must be getting some goods from the clothes we make out of the cotton we grow here.
Wow it's been a long day! Now come my daughter so we can prepare for when your father and brother get home.
Now, Daughter, today I will teach you how to create an apron.
That sounds wonderful, Wife.
Now that you are home, Husband I will make the dinner for the family while our daughter mends the clothing.
I must mend the clothes for my family, as it is my job to make sure we have clothes. I make some of the clothes and mend most of them now that mother has taught me how.
Wow! Create one! I've never done that before!

Father owns our house. Since I am a married woman and you are a child we cannot own any property for ourselves.
