Sometimes, you just don’t feel like having the honesty of children right up in your face. Here are some of the great one-liners I heard from Gabriella today.
“Look, Mommy, I’ve got a big butt like you!” “Gee, thanks, honey.”
“Mommy, you pee really loud. I bet everyone in here can hear you.” Yes, my face was red. I am not fond of the public restroom as it is. Shouting out that she can hear me is not my idea of relaxing.”
(When trying on clothes with me at the mall.) “Hey, Mommy, is that a tattoo or did you color on yourself. You really shouldn’t color on yourself. Can I get a tattoo like you have, Mommy?” I am pretty sure that I am not going to be trying on clothes with her for a while. Maybe she will forget the whole tattoo thing.
Ahhhh, the honesty of children. You just have to love it. If only the whole world were as honest and up front with what they were thinking. There might be a lot more fights, but at least you would always know where you stand with someone.
