At work today…
Student: I got these shoes at a new store!
Me: Cool! Can I go with you to the store to get new shoes, too?
Student: Yeah! We can get you shoes like mine!
Me: (I want to hug this kid SO bad) Well… can I have them in pink?
Student: Yeah! You can have them in pink! And, and… you are in my favorite color! You can have that too!
Me: (I’m smiling, but I’m going wtf? At this point he keeps saying I am his favorite color. I look at my arm and go, oh.) Oh, so pink and brown?
Student: YEAH! YOU are MY favorite color!
Seriously, my heart melted. The child continued on about what shoes he planned to buy me (with his mommy and grandma, of course), and how they will be “fast” and most definitely pink and his favorite color. 😉
