Thanks for that…
My daughter informed me this week she made a gingerbread woman, not man, in her Pre-K/MDO class. When I asked her what it looked like she said, as she was staring at the lower part of my face,
“It’s brown with a big zit on its chin.”
So while other little girls are fashioning culinary miniatures of their moms with great hair or a cute handbag, mine is replicating my skin eruptions.
There’s nothing that says ‘I love you’ quite like being mocked in cookie dough.
Oh that’s priceless!! Don’t you just love the way our kids can zing us with a shot of humility and be so cute doing it?
At least she didn’t add the hair that was coming out of your chin that you blogged about a few months back. :-) I am kidding, kidding….seriously.
That is awesome. I honestly did laugh out loud.
My 3 year old calls zits “moles”, and drew a picture of mine on our white board once. Don’t you just feel the love!
Okay, I’m still laughing. Thanks for the *grin*!!
When my son was 3 he drew a mother’s day picture of me “frowing up in the potty all day” at preschool… I was pregnant with his twin sisters, and I kept the picture to this day in honor of the intense graphic detail.
great post! glad I found your blog1
This is almost as bad as Madeline telling me as I’m looking in the mirror, “mom, I love you no matter what size you are.”
I was always very …round…in my kids pictures. Well, I am sorta round,I guess.
I just wish kids didn’t have to be quite so honest! Emma drew me with VERY messy hair the other day, claiming sometimes I don’t brush it. What?! Or when she came to me, finger in nose yesterday, and said, “Mommy sometimes you do this.” Fan-tastic.
For the record, I DON’T pick my nose. Not usually, anyway.
How funny. So, does she plan on eating this gingerbread zit?
hilarious…that’s what i thought—is she gonna eat your zit? my 3-year-old looked up at a guy in line behind us at grocery store and said “wow, you are so ugly” as I confiscated him with my hand over his mouth…
We teach them to be honest and then it comes right at us when least expected. We love those precious ones anyway.
How’s the remodeling project going? On time? I just finished a home project. Please stop by to visit & see.
Blessings in Christ–
I was just wondering if you and Brooke have tried reminding your daughters where 1/2 of their genes came from and that likely they will be alot like you as they get older? This MIGHT stop some of the harrassing. Let me know if it works and I will try it on Rachel. LOL. When I came home with my hair cut off short again the other day, she was very quick to tell me she did not like it.
Haha! So funny! (I can say that because luckily my son has not gotten to this age yet.) I am also wondering if she’s eaten the cookie!
That is PRICELESS! You’ll be telling that story forever….or maybe not!
