What do you say when?

Have you ever had a day where you wanted to crawl in a hole and die because of something your child said or did?

On our normal trip to Seattle this past Tuesday we ate our normal food court lunch after ballet then headed down to the play area.

The kids had been playing for a while friends who they see there every Tuesday had left, but we were trying to kill some time before we met my mother for dinner.

All parents and children took note of two kids that came into play. At this point my son had found a new kid to play with. I was watching how the two were playing and how they were treating the little kids.

Not even five minutes later my son stands up on one of the tallest play structures and yells at the top of his lungs and pointing "look its a midget baby"

I had no idea what to even say. I thought the kids and I had gone over all of this. We watch little people big world all the time. Why is it that any time my kids are around children who we don't know my children learn all sorts of great things.

Thank god Scott was there who talked to Avery then later he was still feeling bad for what he said. My aunt talked with him as well.

But then.....

While at dinner with my mother at our local Red Robin. While a family of little people were getting seated at the table behind us.

My son oh so very happy because he knew what to say.

Stands up

Points yet again

"Look MOM Little People!"

Tell me what does one say when this happens?

Oh the things our sweet babies say.

Until next time,
Just Mom
