Poor Daddy has taken the brunt of some of the girls’ bluntness lately…and Mommy may have just gotten a kick out of it, too!
The girls were sitting in Daddy’s lap last week as I was preparing to brush their teeth before bed.
Baby A reached up and touched the side of his head. “White,” she said. Then, she touched the front of his head and said, “Black.” Then, “White,” again pointing to the side of his head, followed by, “Black,” at the back.
She was pointing out Daddy’s graying pattern! I couldn’t help but laugh, and even Hubby had to chuckle…although I don’t think he would appreciate my encouraging her to repeat her little exercise in color observation.
On Friday, Daddy was doing a little work in the backyard. The girls still remember the “man” that worked in the backyard last fall doing some landscaping. (I say “man”, because that’s the way they refer to him…”Man work in backyard.”)
When they saw their daddy outside, Baby B said, “Daddy work outside. No man.”
I, of course, recognized the context, but folks unaware of the background may have mistaken her for stripping her father of his manhood.
I actually didn’t share that with the hubs…I figured one blow a week is enough for the poor guy.
(And can I just say how excited I am to be playing along with Missy’s Say What?! Wednesday meme??? Yup, that means my girls are talking, and this mama loves hearing their tell-it-like-it-is take on the world!
