One time my niece, the little spitfire that she is, tried to embarrass the daylights out of me, and I couldn't run away! We were sitting in the van with her two brothers, & my daughter.. waiting for my sister to get out of the store. The door was open, it was a nice hot day. A few short empty spaces down, who should pull in but a cute little old lady. She was all by herself & so patient as she got out her own walker & went to walk in the store. It was the first time I'd ever prayed that someone couldn't hear. My niece bellows out, honest & sincere as ever "Look at that lady, that lady's old!" I, resisting the urge to hide my face, told her that was not nice to say... maybe even a "shh" or two behind suppressed giggles. She says "What? Her hair's old, her face is old, that lady IS old." After that I couldn't control it anymore.. I was too embarrassed to say anything but there was nowhere to hide, every seat had a car seat, and besides I'd have to close the back door, and awkwardly get to the front to even think about driving away! One thing I learned from that experience, as naive as children may seem when it comes to the ways of the world, they know what goes on in THEIR world, and they are not afraid to let you know.. or anyone else, for that matter.
Hello this is a story about my five kids.One day we was watching a movie called Shallow Hal. My kids started laughing saying how Fat the girl was. Well,I told them that people aren't fat their overly plump.The next day we went to the store and when we got in line a rather large cashier was tending to us. here goes my 6yr old saying don't worry your not fat you're just overly overly overly plump and the rest of my kids bust out laughing ,one don't even know why she was laughing because she's only 2 at this point my head was down, mouth open, frown on my face and I walked out of line. Now when ever I see that cashier I try not to end up in her line.
I've been flat-chested my whole life and I've always been aware and confident about it, but at the grocery store the other day this precious-looking toddler with blonde curls loudly asked her mother, "Where are that lady's boobies, Mommy?" Time to buy a push-up.
My 1year old daughter, normally will sit and play with all her toys in the lounge room, while im busy having my morning coffee or doing house work. Until one morning i dont hear anything coming from the lounge room no giggles no toys being thrown around, too quiet for my liking. So i open to door to find her sitting on the couch, (which to my horror she knows how to climb onto) opened a tube off cruash baby cream, stuck her tiny finger inside and is picking it all out! She was covered in cream, stuck on her teeth all over the couch! Horror!!!! CHeeky little girl.
My husband and I have been married for 18 years and we don't have or want kids. We're kid magnets, though. Wherever we go, there are bratty, screaming kids around us. Doesn't matter if it's a grocery store or a restaurant or movie. And the parents seem completely oblivious to it or make it worse with idle threats, ie "Do you need a time out? Do you? Do you want time out? I will give you time out." OMG Just give them time out already! Anyway, it can really ruin our day at times.
