Funny way to say it...

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.

He'll think you're cool for a very long time cause you are!

I don't think there is any higher compliment from a 4 year old boy!

Now that is an awesome compliment! And honestly? I miss my kids being "little" just because of things like that!

I hope I can be a "boy lady" someday to my little guy. :)

Reminds me of a comment by my 13-y/o. We got fleece throw blankets for the sunday school teachers and had the kids pick out which to give to whom. The one Spaz picked out for his female teacher was blue and grey with a manly outdoorsy print. When I pointed out that that was definitely one of the more masculine designs, he insisted that it was just right for her. "She's sort of a masculine woman, you know what I mean?" he said. "I mean not masculine, but, well..." She's NOT masculine at all, but I knew what he meant. "Uh," I said, "you mean, she's not a girly-girl type." "Yeah," he said. (And you know what? She LOVED the blanket and said blue was her favorite color. So he done good.)

Awww! That's sweet.
Chuckling over the two earrings.

I know I was lucky to have a little boy who would always compliment me on how nice I looked, especially if I wore a dress. Then he became aware of his boyness and would get embarrassed about making such remarks. *sigh* He's still a sensitive soul, but he balances that with martial arts and computer games. :o)

Peace and Laughter!
