no girls allowed (except mommy)

The other night we had some friends kids over, and I must say that they are delightful kids. But on this particular night the girls came up with the brilliant idea to form a "girls only" club where, as the name might imply, NO BOYS WERE ALLOWED.

Which is firstly, hilarious, and secondly quite surprising to Benson who hasn't really experienced gender discrimination yet. So he told us about it tonight at dinner, and while Ben was beginning his diplomatic, "how does that make you feel?" speech I immediately helped him plot revenge. Thus the founding of the "Boy's Club."

Now apparently even if you don't understand genders yet, you do automatically know that with a club comes signage. So Benson wrote up this little sign (with spelling help, of course) and found an envelope to send to his friend with instructions about this new club. Here is the letter exactly as dictated:

Skyler,

This is only for boys. Don't tell any girls. But you can tell them, "Have fun in your girl's club." (that's my favorite part) But you'll have fun with me and we'll plan out things. What about your mom? You can tell your mom.

Your Friend,
Benson


I hope this doesn't cause too many problems the next time they get together. Although, the girls did start it. :)

OH NOOOO.. So sorry! That is so funny though! They have been doing that at home too, and it causes problems with Rylan. Bethany picked up the girl club thing from another classmate at school. The joys of school! It will be interesting the next time they do get together...it may be good to give the girls a piece of their own doing!! haha Go Benson!

That letter is the cutest thing! I'm expecting a little boy this spring, so it's nice to know they like their Moms included! :)
