Caroline reported at pickup that she had a great morning at preschool. She said she did some school work with her dreamy crush, Nick. I was surprised that he was willing to work with her, as he very much toes the gender separation line. So I asked how that went.
"It was great. I told him that he's, like, totally handsome."
Ergh. I double winced because 1) who wants a boy-crazy 4 year old? and 2) he does not mince words, and I didn't want her crushed.
I asked how he replied to that.
"I don't remember what he said. But I did tell him that it doesn't matter if he's handsome because it's still girls versus boys around here."
