Kids are so honest, which is good and bad. If you are looking for any type of ego boost, this honesty can be very bad.
Today one of my little ones told me she has a dance recital, but I can’t come because it’s only for family. I told her that makes sense because they probably need to keep the crowd of people to a manageable amount. She thought for a few minutes then said:
“Well, you could totally be my grandma, then you can come.”
While it’s sweet of her to try and include me, I’m really hoping I couldn’t pass as her grandma. Granted I am probably a few years older than her parents, but still. Ego deflated for a bit! It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last. I love the stuff that comes out of small mouths!
