Normal Play for 4 year old Boy

My son recently turned 4 and I noticed at daycare he plays only with the girls.  I talked to his teacher about this and they said he prefers playing with the girls but will play with the boys.  They said that the girls fight over who gets to play with him because he will pretend to be the prince when playing princess.  He loves to pretend play as we have encouraged that.  When @ home he plays super heroes trains etc.  When he's not playing with his dad he will often play with the girl superhero more often then the boy.  He absolutely loves playing with his boy cousin the same age.  He says he plays with the girls because they are beautiful & the boys aren't as cool as his dad. Im worried that I'm missing something & note letting him be himself.  My mom says I'm ridiculous that I have a happy boy who's just being a kid and playing with the kids who give him attention. I'm just wondering if this is normal.

It all sounds perfectly normal - I don't see any need for you to be worried.
