This morning while getting ready for school, Kate put on some sticker earrings. So of course B wanted some. I obliged him, because its not like his preschool friends are at the developmental stage where they openly mock other kids. I mean, Beckett eats his own boogers sometimes and he still has friends in his class, so I’m pretty sure a little bling isn’t going to ruin his rep just yet.
Sadly, when I picked him up I had to have THIS conversation…
Teacher: Did you put earrings on Beckett this morning?
Me: Uh, well, his sister did (slight bending of the truth to avoid judgement from particularly judgy preschool teacher).
Teacher: Oh, Okay, because he told me that his mommy put them on him.
Me (mental headslap): Oh, haha, the things these kids say…
Teacher: Well, so, ANYWAY… today was picture day.
Teacher: Yeah. And, well, we tried to take them off, but he wouldn’t let us.
Teacher: So, yeah, he is wearing those earrings in his picture.
Teacher: Yeah. Haha, even the photographer was all, IS THAT BOY WEARING EARRINGS?? And I was all, HE WON’T LET ME TAKE THEM OFF! Haha. So. Um. See you next Monday! BYYYYEEEEEEE.
(Teacher waves and walks off)
Me (to Beck): …. Thanks a lot buddy.
Beckett: (big grin)
Me: *SIGH* I have to call your daddy. I don’t think he is going to like this one.
