No Girls

Conversation with Adam in the car this morning;
M: When your last month of karate is over you can pick something new to try like gymnastics or something.
A: Well, I might want to try gymnastics. But I don't want to go to a dance class that has lots of girls like the one in Indiana.
M: What's wrong with being in a class with girls?
A: Well, I don't like to be friends with a bunch of girls. I just want to stick with boys.
M: Oh, but you like to play with Haley and she's a girl.
A: Yeah, but she's a girl I know and I'll just stick with her. I like Haley, but I don't want to be friends with a bunch of girls I don't know.
M: You'll probably have alot of girls in your kindergarten class.
A: Oh, well, I'll be friends with the girls in my kindergarten class. Just not the girls at the dance class in Indiana.
M. Oh...okay.

I still couldn't quite get out of him why exactly he doesn't like girls. Maybe he thought he had to wear a tutu if he went to a class with all girls. Or, maybe he just doesn't want to be the only boy. Anyway, this conversation happened on the way home from registering him in Kindergarten. I can't believe my little boy is going to school! This all seems to crazy! Time goes by too fast and I wish my little stinkers would stay little just a little longer.

... you could always homeschool :)

That Adam, he is such an independant thinker. It's funny though, how the genders interact with each new grade. It's only just begun....

Reilly isn't a big fan of the fairer sex either. Nor of anything pink. (Yecch! Eew!) I think it's a boy thing; his cousin was the same way.

Judging from most of the men I know, we tend to get over it. ;P hehe

(Maybe not the pink allergy, tho.)

Welcome home! We missed you guys.
