Evan was invited to his first social activity this past weekend by one of his preschool classmates, Myles. It was a movie night: they were showing "Meet the Robinsons" complete with a concession stand and everything.
I dropped him off and he was a little shy. Myles is a cute kid with an outgoing personality - all the kids in Evan's class love him, and the girls want to marry him :) Well, there were about 7 or 8 other kids there - none we knew, none from school. Evan was the only one who was able to come from school.
I was trying to make sure that Evan would be o.k. when I left and he whispered in my ear, "Mom, you and me are the only ones who aren't brown."
Isn't that just the sweetest thing you've ever heard? I chuckled and agreed with him and told him that it was kind of like him wearing glasses - it makes him special from everyone else. Wouldn't this world be such a better place if we all could look at it through 4 year old eyes?
