With kids you usually don’t have to wonder what they are thinking, at least not for long! They tend to just blurt it out without sifting their thoughts through filters. Many have been my embarrassing moments when I have heard one of my kids tell someone, “You have a big nose!” or “You’re fat!” While tact is something that needs to be taught, truly honesty is one thing I love about children. Even when it comes to the things they say to me…
One of my girls inspected my looks one day and trying to be helpful let me know, “Mom, I think you look much better when you don’t wear a ponytail.” Of course I wear a ponytail about ninety percent of the time! Ha ha! Comfort scores big points with me and especially now that the baby pulls my hair at every chance, I’ll rock my pony tail, thank you very much! 🙂
Sitting around the table the kids were discussing who is the cutest. I usually put an end to such conversation right away, but, for some reason this particular time, curiosity got the better of me, and I listened while the whole thing played out. Everyone agreed that Bobby is the cutest in the family. Then after much discussion, they decreed Daddy the second cutest. The next few placements went by smoothly. I thought everyone was finished when my six-year-old decreed, “And Mom is the last cutest in our family!” For some reason I decided that would be a great time to talk about the importance of character versus looks!

Haaa I have to say … you are too cute! Sometimes I let the discussion play out and sometimes its not very encouraging…lol!! We don’t seem to have filters at our house….and I think that the older I get the less my filter works!

I think you rock that pony tail really well! I rock mine too. 😉
lol! stopping by from WLWW linkup. I love this. Children are so honest. One time I told my in-laws “hmmm…there’s no telling what you will learn about us if you stick around long enough!”
