He's not a Girly Man.

September 23, 2009

This is "Johnny Appleseed" week at school. Luke has come home singing the praises of homemade applesauce and apple pie the last couple of days. My assignment is to send apple muffins tomorrow.

Luke is really into the whole "Johnny Appleseed" story. But I noticed that when I brought it up at bedtime Monday night, he looked a little confused.

Me: "What's up, buddy?"

Luke: "Mommy, did Johnny Appleseed have girly hair?"

Me: "Huh? I don't think so, I mean, I don't really know..."

Luke: "Oh, okay. Goodnight!"

I tucked both kids in and came downstairs. I was cleaning up the kitchen when I saw some of Luke's schoolwork sitting in a pile on the counter, with a Johnny Appleseed puppet on top.
I get it now.

That's cute. And from that picture, I would say he had girly hair... and a very nice flip...

Wendy said...

Uh, yeah! Totally girly hair! Do you think he was skipping around when he was leaving apple seeds?

That's definitely girly hair!!!

Billy Coffey said...

Wow, that does look like girly hair, doesn't it? Hmm...

Okay, so now the school system is making heros like Johnny Appleseed look like girls. Funny. I can see how he was confused.

I would have been confused too. Isn't it funny what they think about?

It's kind of a That Girl do,but it works with the pan hat. I love Johnny Appleseed week, makes me all warm and applepiey inside: )
and since no one in my house eats apple pies but be, that makes me a lot of apple piey inside.

Love,
Rene

So funny!! Henry has shared all of the joys of Johnny Appleseed this week with me as well. Though, the idea of girl hair has yet to enter his mind. I'm sure it will, though.

Poor kid - it's rough when your hero seems to be gender-confused... :)

Hopefully you were able to clear that up for him.
