On Sunday morning, I stood in my closet searching for something to wear to church. In came the 4-year old. She watched me put on a few tops and told me that each one was so pretty and to wear it. But I continued to change, probably five times. Finally, she noticed….
My nail polish!
I have had my toes painted the same deep coral color for months now. But the night before I had painted my fingernails the same color. It had caught her disapproving eye, and she let me know.
“Why are you wearing orange? Orange is NOT a pretty color. I mean, you can wear it if you want to, but you should wear red or pink. Those are pretty colors.” I swear, that is what she said… in one breath, word for word. I turned and stared at her. WHERE did she come from?? I even asked her this!
“Where did you come from?!”
“Um, EARTH!” she said in her most “duh, Mommy” voice possible.
The stuff kids say!
