The Joy of Child-Rearing

I was dropping Matthew off at Pre-K this morning when the Director of the Child Development Center said good morning to us. She is 40-ish woman with the perma-smile and high voice that all Early Childhood Education majors seem to learn.

Matthew smiled at her and said "Want to show you something" He proceeded to lift up his shirt and point to his nipple. "I've got small ones," He began, "And YOU got big ones, and DADDY'S got big ones" he finished, pointing to our chests in turn.

God bless her, the lady didn't even blink. She just smiled gently and said "Yes, it's the magical growth of our bodies." Matthew seemed pleased, and walked off to class. The director walked off as well, not making eye contact with me.
