Outta the Mouths of Babes: Monday Morning Observations

SETTING: Kitchen table. Annelie and I are working. I have my coffee and the morning pages, and Annelie is enlightening me with her observations about life as she studies shapes in her workbook.

ANNELIE: Mom, you have a mole on your face.

ME: Yup, I do.

ANNELIE: Only old ladies have moles.

ME: I've had mine since I was a little girl.

ANNELIE: Well, I only see old ladies with moles. And hippos.

ME: Hippos?

ANNELIE: Yeah. See? This hippo has moles, too.



ANNELIE: See that? The hippo has three moles! Only old ladies and hippos have moles like you.

Kids are a treat, aren't they?

Happy Monday, folks!

I'm lucky that Merrick has one on his head and has since he was a wee babe and Amelia has one on the back of her leg and near her ear. Tell Annelie that so she lets go of the old lady thing :) If it makes you feel any better Amelia told me I had a squishy belly like Santa...so at least you don't have THAT going for you!
