Children are generally honest…in fact, brutally so. And my children are no exception.
For example, this evening while eating supper the TV was somehow left on. I usually pay no attention to it, but as we were eating I happened to notice that the show, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” was on. As I went to shut it off, this is the conversation that occurred:
Big Bro: “So, Mom, women like, lose a lot of weight when they have babies?”
Scooter: “Well, duh, everyone knows that.”
BB: “So did you lose a lot of weight when you had us?”
S: “Well, of course she did.”
BB: “So…what happened after George?”
S: “Well, apparently having four kids makes you fat.”
Instead of supper I guess I’ll just have a protein shake.
