it's girly...

Jackson and I have been attending story time once a week. He loves it and I love the time spent with him. Today's theme was Valentines, of course, and our leader always does a GREAT job.

At the end, they can walk up front and she'll stamp their hand, both if they want, and give them a coloring sheet to take home.

Well, he gets stamped and comes back upset saying "big boy". I'm thinking he's gotten pushed out of the way because he only has one hand stamped and no coloring picture. I encourage him to go back and get his other hand stamped. He walks up and tells her, "big boy", in his loud, tough voice. She and I are both confused and she tries to stamp the other hand but he refuses. After we walk away, his little lip is quivering and it's clear he is very upset. I keep asking him what's wrong and finally he says "dats baby stamp, i big boy, dats girly!"

Hilarious! His stamp was a heart face and it did look a bit girly but who would've thought he'd have such an issue with it! He was very disappointed with his stamp and complained about it the whole way out! Jackson is so FUNNY to me and I just love his little opinions about things. You just never know with him... :)

That's funny how he's picking up on stuff like that - it must be innate! Wonder if he'll get more verbal to the girlie things now that you're preparing for Addison...

Beth, I love that story. Cute! Jackson is definitely not a girly boy. It is always so fun to hear what they really think.
