I beg your pardon...

The other day I was minding my own business when Buttercup announced boldly, "Mama, I don't like your bottom!" I was a little crushed by such a hurtful pronouncement. After all--isn't it important to us all that our children are proud of their mother's assets? (Please know that I'm kidding.) I just responded, "Yeah, me neither", and left it at that.

I naively thought the criticisms were over when later that day Charming came to me looking a little forlorn. "Buttercup told me she doesn't 'like my lips'!"

Harsh.

I let him know I liked his lips plenty, and he in turn assured me that my "bottom" was just fine. (That was not supposed to come out sounding as dirty as it did. There are no innuendos on this blog. But the naughtier side of me likes the wording--too funny!)

I love the naughtiness.

I agree with Katie. I can't wait for the day when my children tell me the complete and honest truth. Hopefully its something like, Mama, I don't like your belly button". I can hide that one pretty good....

Don't you just love how honest kids are? They just say what's on their mind. If they only knew how we don't want to hear it! We are hard on ourselves as it is. They are so funny love the post!

I have tears streaming down my face. That is hillarious. Your wording is perfect, don't change a thing. I like your Christmas background by the way.
Love, Suzy
