I called the kids down from quiet reading time for circle time this afternoon, and the complaining started. The girls were bent out of shape about something. We sat down and the girls and I started talking (as girls do) about why they were upset. Well the discussion went on, and on, and meanwhile Owen was on the outskirts playing with the dog (as boys do). So when the tears started flowing and the hugging began, Owen pipes up and says "Um, I thought this was going to be circle time, not hugging time?" He is all boy! We all had a good laugh and felt much better. Thanks Owen!
