Kids Say the Cutest Things!
I am so sensitive and I hurt easily but I am not weak. There are things that make me sad but I laugh a lot too. Babies and kids are my favorite. Kids do and say the cutest things....
When my daughter was 9 she came home to tell me that the girl students were told by their teacher that some girls were starting their periods (menstrual cycle) and they would be having an assembly to discuss this more because of the problems that this was causing to the schools' plumbing system. I had taught my child about mentrual cycles. So she was rather unfamiliar with folks calling it a period. When she heard the word period she could not make the connection. She was so shocked! Mom she said excitedly, "I learned all about periods, commas and question marks in the first grade". Looking up at me like what's wrong with these kids. I thought that was so funny!
Another time my niece who I helped to raise by picking her up almost every weekend of her life (and other things I did), said to me in a card she gave me for my birthday...I always knew that I would love you even before I was born...Now that was cute...I was thinking how could she know that as a fetus? She and I are so connected forever. It is her baby I blogged about several weeks ago.
What's something cute that you have heard a kid say?
