why she’s still single too (as explained by her 8 year old)



overheard while working at drama camp, conversation between two 8 year olds sitting next to me:


 ‘my mom just got dumped.’ his friend asked, ‘what is dumped?’ He said, “broken up with. it’s okay, he was younger and a personal trainer. she had 3 men though.” i didn’t know exactly what to say so the best i could come up with was, ‘maybe he’s not the right man.’  they both just looked at me without responding and began talking about who was going to play peter pan.
