Kids are great. . .

until they open their mouths!

I was running errands with all 3 of my darlings. As I was waiting in line to pay, an elderly woman walked by and commented on how cute my kids were. Th piped up with his own comment: “Wow! She’s really old!” I wasn’t brave enough to turn around to see if she heard him, but the woman directly in front of me did and she laughed so hard I thought she was going to fall over. I obviously couldn’t see the look on my face, but I could feel it turning the same shade of red as my shirt. I absolutely wanted to sink into the floor! I am thankful for these wonderful, teachable moments! I explained (again!) that sometimes we don’t say things even though we think them.

I hope he understands this time. . . or at least waits until he’s with TJ to say something embarrassing! It always seems to happen when he’s with me!
