Yesterday, J-man came up beside me while I was scrolling through e-mails.
He took note of my earrings.
"Oh, you wearing a earring. I like it." Then he noted that I had on two earrings.
"Oh, you have two." (or something like that...I forgot by the charm of the next sentence)
"You like a lady, mom." He went back to playing his game. as he picked up his controller,
"A BOY lady. I figured that out myself."
I was afraid that maybe I should wear make up more often - or fix my hair differently.
I thought it was funny, because of the "figured that out myself" comment.
I told my funny to the professor who pointed out that it was supposed to be complimentary.
J-man has decided that girly things -- well, they're not quite evil - but they're close. He is adamant that he partake in nothing girly.
So for him to tell me that I was a "boy lady" -- means that he thinks I'm cool.
It's different....but I'll take it.
My four year old thinks I'm cool. I hope he thinks that for a very long time.
