(This should be prefaced with a little explanation–I am blessed with exceptionally thick (read: big) hair, which I almost always wear down. But today it was all weird after being in a ponytail at the gym, and I was seeing my hairstylist after school, so I pulled it back in a bun. Oh, and wore contact lenses for probably the first time this year).
(I walk into the preschool room and sit down while the kids finish snack)
Me: _____, your cupcake looks good. What kind is it?
Kid: (to the preschool aide, whispering) Um, where is Miss Bridget?
Kid: Miss Bridget…where is she?
Aide: She’s right here (pointing at me).
Kid: It doesn’t look like her.
(I laugh pretty darn hard)
Aide: But it sounds like her, doesn’t it?
Kid: (nodding, but looking at me skeptically) Mmm hmm.
Aide: Sometimes people just look a little bit different.
