Today during storytime a student from the classroom next door came by to return a book that his teacher had borrowed. I had never met this little guy so I introduced myself. As he left I commented to the class that he was a very handsome young man. One of my students chimed in and said that he was pretty. Giggles erupted and I gently explained that we usually refer to girls as pretty and to boys as handsome.
Never missing an opportunity to make a good point, C. announced most emphatically, "Girls are not pretty. They are GORGEOUS!"
I have decided to rename C. He will be referred to as P.C. from now on. P.C. for Prince Charming.
