I had some end-of-the-month business to take care of at work while I’m still on paternity leave so I packed up Swee’Pea and we headed for the Y. After signing invoices and making sure all the finances were in order for the end of the month (doesn’t my job sound exciting!?), I stopped at the various programs to let my staff see Swee’Pea for the first time. My last stop was the pre-school where the kids are 3-5 years old and sooo cute. I love visiting the pre-school because I always get kids rushing up and hugging my legs. This day, they noticed I had Swee’Pea in the infant carrier and everyone gathered around to look at her. One of the kids asked if Swee’Pea was a boy or a girl. “A girl.” I responded.
Then a little boy right next to me said, in all seriousness, “Noooo. If that’s a girl, why does she have a boy haircut?”
