What is this, like, the 1950s?

17 Nov

Today in storytime we used my “Best Dressed Bear” flannel pieces to get bear ready for a party. I have pants, a shirt, socks, shoes, a jacket, hat, tie, and gloves.

He also has underwear,which I made for him due to popular preschooler demand (they kept telling me he had to put them on before pants).

Today, a young lady, responding to my question about what bear should put on before his pants, said this: “a girdle.”

Ahem…I believe the current correct term is “shapewear.”

I also had this priceless exchange with a young man:

Boy: “What are you? Like, a librarian?”

Me: “Yes, I’m a librarian! That’s exactly what I am!”

Boy: “I’m going to be a librarian when I grow up.”

Teacher: “I thought you said you were going to be a teacher!”

Boy: “I changed my mind.”

I WIN.
