Please Excuse My Blunt Children!

I love how children say exactly what they are thinking even if it's not exactly accurate or polite. We are working on only saying encouraging things, but there's a learning curve. Right now it comes across funny.

So yesterday, I went to the gym to swim laps. As Ridge, Charly, & I were walking out to go home, a woman dressed in a jog bra & biker shorts walked out in front of us. Ridge points to the woman and shouts at the top of his voice for everyone to hear, "Mommy! She naked!!" I buried my face in the back of my two year old to keep from laughing from embarrassment. Thankfully, the woman didn't turn around and acknowledge my son's comment. I'm hoping she didn't hear him. What are the chances?

And just the day before, my sweet, observant Charly asked a friend of mine why she has a gold tooth. My friend really doesn't have a gold tooth. She actually has a beautiful smile. So that was embarrassing, and I'm praying my friend isn't offended. Then shortly after, Charly tells her, "you have big teeth!" I'm not so sure what the fascination was with teeth, but we launched into a whole conversation about how mommy's teeth & Charly's teeth were big, but Cobb's were small like Daddy's. Ridge wouldn't open his mouth all the way for her to judge his teeth. Lucky him!

Gotta love those kids!

I'm laughing out loud about the naked lady! That's hilarious. I'm sure we will be entering the embarrassing observation stage soon.

Kids ask me about my teeth ALL the time...why are they spotted? why are they yellow? My fave was a little girl who said "you have a long pointy nose like my mommy".
