You’re the Cheerleader!!

January 4, 2007 leahdanielle

This morning on the playground, a few little children were playing basketball with Miss Ashley (one of the other teachers).  Suddenly, a little three-year-old named Hudson piped up, “Miss Ashley, YOU can’t play basketball!  You’re the cheerleader!  Only BOYS can play basketball!”

Now somebody tell me, where did this three-year-old learn that boys were athletes and girls were cheerleaders?  There are girls’ AND boys’ teams on television and he isn’t yet old enough to go to a live basketball game where there are boys playing and girls cheering.  Is it because his dad only watches guy teams and Hudson notices that there are boys playing and girls cheering?  Perhaps.  Did daddy tell him that boys played sports and girls cheered for them?  Maybe.  Honestly, I’ve no clue.  But, while mildly insulting, that was stinkin’ funny – and slightly telling!
