The Cool Kids

I've written several posts about Little Man recently and don't want anyone to forget about Big Girl. She, like her brother is growing and doing new things each day. Yesterday for example she read an entire 65 page book in about three hours.... This brings me to a post I have been meaning to write for awhile. On being cool.

On Being Cool....

Do you remember back in school how there were always new and different cool things going on? Different clothes or toys or games that everyone just had to have. Last year at Big Girl's school the kindergarten girls were all about the hair bows, clips and necklaces. Accessories - including nail polish were important and every few weeks there was a slight change in "the" best way to wear your hair, etc.

This year, books are the big deal. At least so far.

Specifically, the Magic Treehouse series. I know. Not many kids get into books. But, Big Girl's friends are this year. The nail polish and hair clips still matter, but they are all talking about Magic Treehouse books this year.

I have to say I'm glad. Last year I really thought it was a little early to be concerned about hair and jewelry.

What do you think? What are other kids into in elementary school?
