Conversation with Maddie

As we were leaving school today, Maddie expressed great frustration that the BOYS had a special health class today, and that the GIRLS would not have the special health class until next week.

(For those of you who don't remember 5th grade, this is the 'Our Changing Bodies' or whatever the heck they call it these days).

Maddie told me, with great frustration "Now the boys will know EVERYTHING and the girls won't know ANYTHING until next week."

My assurances that the boys truly do not yet know EVERYTHING were not in the least bit reassuring to her.

After hearing her huff and puff about it for 15 minutes or so, I finally said to her "Maddie, I'll be happy to tell you whatever you want to know. What do you want to know?"

Maddie quickly fell silent. After a few minutes of quiet deliberation, she calmly said "That's okay. I'm good."

Ha ha ha. Funny girl.
