I know you all woke up bright and early to check my blog to see if I had posted my amazing wisdom on clarifying the issue of National Security and the Presidential Campaign. But alas, I still know nothing and Middle Twerp got a gift from Nana and G-pa's farm in southern Indiana.
And let's just say for a 4-year-old boy, this could possibly be the best gift ev-er...next to a real live python (words straight from Middle Twerp's jelly stained mouth). So he took it to share today at PreK.
And when he pulled it out of the box, there were two very distinct, very different reactions. The boys' eyes lit up and immediate "oohs, Ahh, and Cools" came roaring from their little antsy bodies. They could not wait to get close enough to touch and smell and if allowed, taste.
The girls, however, had a very different reaction.
They looked to me for emotional support and they covered their faces and shrunk away is disdain. They needed a little while to cope with this sudden surprise thrown into their world.
I understand. This is how I reacted to the birth of two BOYS! I kid. I kid. Sorta. If you are judgin me and all.
So they teacher is keepin it and laminating it and putting int he science center for years of gender reactions to come.
And I left as the girls hugged me and kissed me and wanted to braid my hair as the boys played like they were combat snakes in the corner. And YES, of course I let them braid my hair and I have some rockin french braids to prove it. Amen.
