Out of the mouths of babes… well, toddlers anyways. Or preschoolers. Whatever.
- Early this morning, I had 3yo Audrey in my arms, and 1yo Fiala came crawling over, to share in the love… I schnuffled my face into them, and exclaimed, “Ooooh, I have my arms full of girls. Oh, boy!” Audrey corrected me, “You should say ‘Oh, GIRL.'”
- I was getting Audrey dressed this morning, and she, delighted with a fuzzy pink hoodie, given to us by a friend (I heart hand-me-downs!), gushed, “I will be so pretty that everyone will like me!” Me: Pause. “People don’t like you because you’re pretty. People like you when you’re nice. Being nice is being pretty on the inside.” Granted, there are people who do like others just because they’re pretty, but we’re not going there right now… 🙄
