Kids say the funniest things. I feel like I repeat that daily. But it’s true!
My latest “kids funny” happened when I was at my kids’ school to volunteer in the school library. On my way to the library, I passed my daughter’s 3rd-grade classroom, and a friend of hers was sitting in the hallway studying with a boy, a fellow 3rd grader. This girl, who I will call “Friend 1”, recounted a story about something that happened at recess.
Apparently, my daughter was walking with Friend 1 and another girl, Friend 2, when another girl approached and wanted to know what they were all talking about.
My daughter, Friend 1 and Friend 2, said, “It’s private”. Which made the other girl very mad. Remember, they are 8 years old. Everything makes them mad!
So the angry 8-year-old girl marched off and went over to another girl, and called my daughter, Friend 1 and Friend 2, a bad name.
I stopped the story. “Ok”, I said. “Well, that’s not nice”. “Did you tell anyone”, I asked?
Friend 1 told me that they told the teacher who called them all in to have a meeting. She had them talk about it. She had the “Angry Friend” apologize. And now they are all friends again.
Well okay then.
Drama, already. In 3rd grade!
During this entire conversation, the boy was sitting silently. Just listening. Listening intently.
He then said, “Geez, girls are so confusing”.
I burst out laughing. Kid… you have NO idea!
