Eric picked up Owen and Annie from school. Coming home in the car, Annie announced, “I like kissing boys.” (Good thing I wasn’t in the car!) Eric asked, “How do you know?” Response: “Because I kissed Jason today.” Calm dad: “Annie, remember what we talked about? Girls aren’t supposed to kiss boys; boys kiss girls.” Annie: “Oh, OK.” (So, it might have been different for a few of you, but don’t tell Annie that!)
Today, when I was at the school serving as room mother, I asked the teacher for her version. She witnessed the whole thing, and it seemed to surprise both Annie and Jason when it happened (thankfully seemingly un-premeditated!). But apparently Jason had a HUGE smile on his face afterward.
Here we go! Hopefully she’ll keep talking to us about these things… but hopefully we won’t need to have a lot of conversations again like this for at least a few more years.
