So, teaching a 4 year old about tact is interesting... they are so brutally honest as times that you don't know whether to laugh or cry!! She likes to tell me point blank that I smell or that I need to shave. I tell her that even though I, or others smell (because I've been taking care of kids and haven't had time for a shower), you keep it to yourself. Or you can say "You need to shave Mom" with a little less of a disgusted tone =) Tonight's bed time convo was worth posting and it showed me that she just might be learning...
Claire looking at her fuzzy heart pillow that desperately needs a washing...
"Mom, that's daddy's gel on my pillow." (he likes to use it when he tucks her in)
Me: "Yeah, it's getting a bit dirty - we'll wash it soon."
Claire: "It's kind of yucky but I won't tell him that."
Me: "You won't?"
Claire: "Nope... he's kind of a good guy."
I laughed out loud and kissed her - she didn't want to hurt daddy's feelings. I think he's kind of a good guy too =)
