Jokkanen is 5 years old. Going into kindergarten.
The other day, we were flipping through the local Jewish community paper and there was an article about a woman who is a med student and is also believed to be the first Jewish cheerleader for the Houston Texans.
Accompanying the article, was a picture of her wearing her cheerleader outfit.
When I flipped the page, I didn’t even notice it (really!) and Jokkanen said to me, “why is her tummy showing?”
I told him that it was part of her outfit and made no further mention of it.
Then, I turned a few pages beyond it.
A few minutes later, I came back and he had flipped the paper back to her picture.
“Why are you looking at the picture?” I asked.
“Because,” he said.
“Because isn’t a reason,” I explained.
And then he said, “I don’t know why I want to look at it.”
But, he just did.
I just found that very curious.
