Showing My Age

I was working with my three-year-old preschool friend Katelyn yesterday when she suddenly noticed my earrings. (I’m not sure why it took her so long.  I have a weakness for long sparkly earrings…it’s the magpie in me) She stared at them for a moment before gasping out, “Miss Susie! Are you allowed to wear earrings?”

I think I did a pretty good job not bursting into laughter before I calmly replied that I was indeed “allowed” to wear them.  Katelyn just looked at me doubtfully, so I felt the need to explain further to her.

“I’m a grown-up so I get to make my own decisions”

“Really, I am”

Katelyn just tilted her head, considering this. It wasn’t until I pointed out to her that I was tall just like her mommy that she finally decided that I might possibly be a grown-up.

I’m still not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing…

    So great!!! I love it when my daughter tells me “When you are little again we will do…” If only we could be little again for a while.

    hahah! That’s cute! I love dangly earrings too, but my little girl just seems to tug on them!

  4. She knows you’re an off roadin’, blingin’ child at heart.

    By now, she’s already tried to convince her mom that she too can make her own decisions. She sounds like a cutie. 🙂

    Hi! Stopping by from The Lady Bloggers! This is too funny, but I would consider it a good thing not be quite so grown up to everyone (okay, maybe your student should see you that way, but…) there is always a little girl in us, too…and aparently you connected with her on that level. LOVE IT!

  7. Such a cute story! I can just see the look on her little face as she looked at you! Glad I stumbled upon your blog!

  8. This is a great story.

    I didn’t realize that you’d moved your blog. I like the new design.

  9. I’d go with the compliment! Whenever and wherever you can get them….go for it! It’s a good thing!

    Kids from my 7-year old’s class also question my age. They I’m not old since I haven’t grown hair yet.


    Mike, the balding guy
