As Ruby was getting ready for school today, she was very insistent that she wear a dress and tights instead of a shirt and pants. I don't really care about that, so we picked out a nice warm winter dress and some (I think) matching tights.
When we arrived at school, one of the other little girls walked right up to her and said shyly, "I like your dress."
"Oh, thanks!" said Ruby happily.
"I like your tights too."
"Do you like my skirt?" the girl asked Ruby.
"Oh, yes, I do like your skirt," Ruby replied sweetly.
At this point, one of the boys in the class just shook his head and sighed loudly. "Boy, that's the funniest thing about girls!" he proclaimed, and then went back to building a tower with his blocks.
