Boy And Her

Post image for Boy And Her

I have two 3 year olds in my daycare.

One is Jason.

The other is Jacey.

For the life of them they can’t remember each others names.

Jacey calls Jason “Boy”.

Jason calls Jacey “Her”.

When Jason uses the bathroom, Jacey walks around yelling, “Boy??? BOY??? Where are you boy??”

And when Jason returns he’ll say, “Can Her go outside wit me?”

Boy and Her never correct one another or insist on being called by their actual names.

When I call either of them by their birth name…

They both respond.

It has occurred to me that I am caring for a 90 year old married couple.

And it’s exactly what I love about my job.

This is HILARIOUS. You’ve captured 3 year olds perfectly. 90 year old married couple, indeed.

That is too funny. My daughter (4) calls my nephew “the boy” which works in our house of girls. Makes me laugh every time though.

That’s adorable! As long as neither of them is annoyed by being called “boy” or “her” who are we to argue? It would be funny if they actually did get married one day….

That is flat out hilarious. I live little people, they are so funny.

And this is why Boy and Her’s parents are so lucky to have you as a daycare provider. :)
