Conversation with Sophie

Sophie: Look mommy, it's a nun!

AM: No sweetheart, that woman isn't a nun, she's just wearing a head covering because she believes she needs to cover her hair.

S: No. She's a nun.

A: Is Ms. Dorothy a nun? (Ms. Dorothy is one of the Director's of her daycare and wears a head covering)

S: (laughs) NO!

A: Well, neither is that women.

***prolonged silence***

S: Men AND Women can be nuns.

A: No, women are nuns. Men who share that lifestyle are called monks.

S: Yes, chipmunks.

A: No, not chipmunks. They're not animals, they're men.

S: (very matter of fact).......but they LOOK like chipmunks.
