It's a girl!


Friday during free play, Sam helped Sally give birth to an old, naked plastic baby girl.

Sally: Tell me to push now.
Sam: Push, honey, push. There! It’s a girl! (As he pulled the baby doll out from her sweatshirt.)
Sally: Can I hold her?
Sam: No, I have to wash her in the sink first.

I watched as Sam pretended to wash the baby in the pretend sink in our “kitchen” area. Then, I went to my computer and sent the following email to the proud grandparents. Here’s what I said:

Helen:

Thought you'd like to know: Sally just gave birth to a baby girl in the free play area. Mom and daughter are both doing fine.

congrats...


Aggie:

Thought you'd like to know...

Sam just helped Sally give birth to a lovely baby girl in the free play area. Mom and daughter are doing well. However, when I asked him if was going to be an OB/GYN like his mother, he said no. He wants to be a PIZZA deliveryman. I’m glad he dreams big.

I knew you’d be proud.

Wait until he finds out that you don't get to eat free pizza all day with his dream job, and you get to look at naked women all the time with the occupation he declined.

SkylersDad said...

That was awesome! I love the fact that you let them go through the whole process, many teachers I know would have shut that down right away!

Tell me to push now? That's it, I'm going to have to ask Miss America what she knows about this. Maybe I should be afraid. Very afraid.

Alix said...

Pizza Delivery Man? Well, at least he's delivering something.

And now we also know why children and pizzas cost so damn much.

Better than a unicorn trainer....
That is my grandaughter's goal.

Michel said...

hahah! Priceless! I wanted to be a truck driver and/or a dallas cowboys cheerleader. (I wasn't picky).

Sherendipity said...

omg, kids are so disturbing.

Suzy said...

The Pizza Man doesn't have such a staggering malpractice insurance to pay. I say he sticks with pizza.

Minka said...

Great story!! Thanks for sharing it.. .

Do they watch so much TV or does the kid visit his mum at work so often?

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Poor kids. What happened to childhood innocence?

LegalMist said...

hahahaha... playing "doctor" has really progressed beyond just imitating the checkups, eh?

... at least they weren't naked and/or trying to be anatomically correct with their play...

Not The Rockefellers said...

We've had a rash of free-play babies in our classroom as well...

"Kindergarten Babies"

Where's 20/20?

Peace - Rene

Sam has actually chosen the career that will afford him the most fun. Good choice, kid!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

Big dreams, always. Very important.

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh how fun! That has got to be a rewarding job. . . shaping the lives of those little guys and dolls.

Joanie M said...

Geez, I was 13 when I found out where babies came from and was totally grossed out! Kids these days...

Gaston Studio said...

There IS no childhood innocence anymore.

ladybloga said...

HAHA kids are hilarious!!

Joanie said...

Yeah, LD decided he may not be a fighter pilot anymore. He wants to work at Medieval Times as a knight. Cuz, you know, it's not as hazardous.

Only to him.

His mom? Different story altogether.
