This is the conversation that Maddie and I had this morning as I was doing her hair.
Maddie - Boys are kind of silly
Me - (chuckling to myself) What do you mean babe?
Maddie - Ty and his friends talk funny and they always talk about star wars...and they tell jokes that they think are funny...but they're really not.
Me - Well sweetie...they are just boys
Maddie - But I am not like that
Me - Well that is why girls and boys are different
Maddie - You mean girls aren't weird like boys?
Me - Yeah...kind of (still chuckling to myself) Girls just sometimes like different things.
Maddie - Yeah...I like princesses and I like to talk normal...and I like to tell jokes that are actually funny.
Me - Yeah babe...I know. I guess that is why boys and girls need each other
*Maddie now has a look on her face like she has just figured out the answer to the world's hardest questions*
Maddie - I get it now Momma!! That is why we have to marry them. They would be just silly boys without us...but when we decide to marry them...we help them be better!
Me - (trying to contain my laughter...and trying to think of a politically correct response) Well babe...as boys grow up...they usually grow out of some of their silliness. And if you find the right boy...he can help you be better too!
Maddie - (looking at me with the cutest little grin) Is that one of those things that mommy's have to say?
Me - Lets just talk about marrying boys when you get older...A LOT older
Maddie - Sounds good to me...they are too silly now anyways
