This was a casual conversation my son and I had the other day while he’s busy tinkering with my cell phone.
Justin: I don’t like one of my girl classmates anymore.
Justin: Because she’s not pretty.
Mommy: What makes her not pretty?
Justin: She doesn’t have a headband.
Mommy: Really? What makes a girl pretty?
Justin: Bracelet. She should have a bracelet.
Mommy: What else? Does a pretty girl wear a skirt or pants?
Mommy: What about her skin, white or dark? (My son doesn’t know fair complexion yet.)
Mommy: What about her hair, long or short?
Mommy: Curly or straight?
So there, my four-year-old defines a pretty girl as someone with a headband and a bracelet, wears a skirt, has white skin and long and curly hair.
