This morning, Peter came in my room to tell me that he was awake when I was doing the last thing I needed to do to get ready for the day - putting my earring on.
Peter - Good morning, Mom. The green light is on, so its wake up time.
Me - Great! Mommy is going to put her earrings on and then we can go pick out your clothes.
Peter - Mommy, why do only girls wear earrings?
Me - They don't, some boys wear earrings.
Peter - THEY DO!?!?!
Me - Sure, lots of boys wear earrings and you can too, but not until you are a grown up and decide if you want to.
Peter - Hhhhmmm... well I am going to be a fireman when I grow up. Do you remember if any of the fireman at the firehouse were wearing earrings?
Me - I don't remember, but we can look at their ears next time we go there.
Peter - OK, and ask them if it is OK for firemen to wear earrings. Then I will know if I get earrings.
SO, the next time we have a MOMS Club field to the Firehouse, it should be very interesting what my son asks during the question and answer portion of the program.
