5 year-old: “Why do you have earrings?”
Me (shrugging): “Because I want to.”
5 y.o.: “Boys can’t have earrings!”
Me: “Sure we can. I have them.”
5 y.o.: “But my dad doesn’t have earrings. I have them.” <Tilts her head to show her sparkly ear-bling.>
Me: “Well, boys having earrings isn’t a law. But maybe your dad should try them.”
5 y.o.: <Looks at me skeptically, then gets distracted by other little girls.>
Of course, inside I wanted to answer her objection by saying “Well, I’m not a boy,” but I couldn’t go there. Still, I don’t see any reason why her dad shouldn’t give earrings a try. They might look quite fetching on him.
