During center time today, one of my girls was "reading the room" with a pointer. She got to my desk and read my nameplate out loud: "Mrs. M."
I called across the room, "MISS M, not Mrs.!"
She gave me a blank look. "But there are two s's in that word... so it's Mrs."
"Well, that does make sense, but that word is Miss. Mrs. is only for ladies who are married." I held up my hand. "See? No wedding ring."
"Oh," she said. "But you look grown up. You should have a husband!"
Ah, the logic of a first grader.
