Mama Loves is my weekly exercise in positive blogging. Learn more at this post.
This week reminded me how much Mama loves blatant honesty.
Anyone who has ever spent time around preschoolers or knows anyone who has knows they speak their minds. No internal censor exists. What they see and think is what you get. I love it. Sure, a little tact might be nice once in a while, but they have plenty of time to learn that. For now, I find it refreshing to be around people who say exactly what they observe. Here are some of my favorites from this week.
Ellie: “Mommy, you have hair all over skin! Your body’s covered with it, just like Grandpa.”
Ellie: “Mama, you’ve got lots of freckles. I don’t like freckles. Maybe you should put make-up on those.”
Zach, while patting my thigh: “You’re so jiggly.”
Zach: “Please stop singing. You’re giving me a headache.”
Yup. There’s nothing like a couple preschoolers to tell it like it is. A perfectly wonderful humbling experience.
