He Just Calls 'Em As He Sees 'Em

According to my son's first-grade teacher, my son was in a bit of trouble for calling names on Monday.

Apparently a girl in his class was doing something my son didn't like (I'm not sure what... coloring outside the lines, maybe? crying that she missed her mom? eating pudding with her fingers? grabbing a toy away from him? I didn't get that part of the story, exactly)...

... so he yelled at her, "You are SO immature!"

He was right, you know. How else would you describe a first-grader, anyway? They're six years old!! Nevertheless, the inappropriate name-calling got him a "yellow card" for the day - after the teacher was able to quit laughing.
