Nick: Mom, why are girls so mean?
Me: Who was mean to you?
Nick: Nicole and Stephanie (No clue who Stephanie is but Nicole sent him a $1 Valentine Gram for ValentiMe's day)
Me: But not Celeste?
Nick: No. Celeste is nice. (NOTE: Celeste is this cutesie, little, pig-tailed girl in his class who ALWAYS SCREAMS 'goodbye' to him when I pick him up @ school's end. She has a little sister named Emily and Nick ALWAYS talks about her. I like her so I usually ask.)
Me: How are they mean? What do they do?
Nick: Well, they're not friends because Stephanie doesn't like Nicole and I'm friends with Stephanie because she sits next to me.
Me: OK, but how are they mean?
Nick: They say they don't want to play with me.
Me: OH. Do you want to play with them?
Nick: No. Girls are mean but why? You're a girl mom.
Me: If you don't want to play with them, then it shouldn't matter why they are mean but not all girls are mean- just some. Nicole and Stephanie are mean because they want to play with you and don't know how to tell you that.
Nick: Can I just play with Sean and Isaiah?
Me: as long as you get an E
Nick: Nicole smells bad
Me: (trying not to laugh) OH...
