A Kayla Observation

So Kayla and I were sitting on the couch sharing a banana.

She's looking at my leg and then puts her finger on some spot. Next thing I hear is, "uh oh! color!"

My first thought was, "did I get a crayon mark somewhere on my thigh? And if so how did that happen?"

So I look down trying to find this "color" mark she sees. She's pointing at my veins. She looks up at me and says, "blue!"

Gee thanks for pointing that out Kayla!

out of the mouths of babes... :) that is why we have children, so they can point out all our flaws...

I'm sorry, but this struck me as quite funny! I have plenty of blue veins myself and I'm sure in time Snuggle Bug will be pointing them out to me as well. Right now, he points to every mole he can find on my body and says, "Owie!" with a concerned look on his little face. :)

Thanks for your comment on my Blog of the Week post! It seems that you "military brats" stick together, don't you? ;)

Thanks mom :)

OW - don't be sorry! It was very funny! So funny I had tears coming out of my eyes at her innocence of pointing out the "color" I had on my legs!

That is so funny! The things that come out of a child's mouth! I once had a little girl ask me if I was a grandma due to the kind of shoes I was wearing (keep in mind I'm 25)!!!

That is just too sweet! They are so innocent. And good for knowing the color!

When I taught 4th grade I had a student tell me I was trying to look like a teenager...and that it wasn't working.

P.S. I'm laughing with you, not at you... You know this, right??

Grandma said...

You've just gotta love the things that kids say!! Like your mom said, pat her on the back for getting the color right and also pat yourself on the back for being the one to teach her her colors :-)

Shelley said...

Thanks for the warning - I am not showing my brats my legs! Goodness me I'll have to start bracing myself for some unwelcome childish honesty - gotta love that total honesty - on someone else!

Well Mommy, you're providing her with such a great way to learn her colors! Don't you just love it when they start picking up on all your flaws?
