Girls and Poneytails

This happened the other day, but I wanted to write it down before I forgot.

It was a Preschool day and Conner had just gotten into the car. This was our conversation during car line and ALL the way home.

Conner: I got a treat!
Mommy: Good.
Conner: Madison didn't get a treat.
Mommy: Did you have a good day?
Conner: Yes.
Mommy: Did you listen to Ms Amy and follow directions the first time like we have been talking about?
Conner: Yes, but Madison didn't, she got in time out, she didn't get a treat.
Mommy: We don't need to worry about Madison, you just need to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to be doing. Did you play with your friends on the playground today.
Conner: Yes, on the new playground (it was new like 3 months ago), but not with Madison, because she's not my friend.
Mommy: Now Conner, that is not nice. Why do you say she is not your friend?
Conner: Because she is a GIRL!!!
Mommy (trying not to laugh): Conner, you have friends that are girls. What about Allison and Gracelyn?
Conner: I love them, but I don't like Madison.
Mommy: You like the other girls in your Preschool class like Emma and Allison and Natalie.
Conner: But Madison got into trouble and she doesn't listen to Ms Amy.
Mommy: Well, you have gotten into trouble for not listening to Ms Amy. Do you want Logan and Grant and the others to stop being your friend?
Conner: No.
Mommy: So you should be Madison's friend.
Conner: But she's a girl.
Mommy: Well I am a girl.
Conner: I love you, but she wears pink.
Mommy: Gracelyn wears pink.
Conner: Madison wears her hair in a ponytail and I just don't like that.
Mommy: (Not knowing how to respond to the poneytail thing) Well, we are home now, so let's go say hi to Daddy and we will play with all of our friends on Friday.

End of discussion. Please note that Conner and Madison are friends (I think), but this was just one day's discussion. So please don't share this with anyone who has a daughter named Madison in Conner's class.
