My child is a sweetie. And he loves me very much. But sometimes he says things that aren't... well... flattering. For example, in the last week:
(As he's touching my face sleepily before bedtime) "Mommy, you have a really soft face. Except your forehead, that's all wrinkly."
(On talking about healthy eating) "But Mom, you're not going to get skinny are you? Your tummy makes a really comfy pillow!"
(After seeing a woman breastfeeding her newborn, and the discussion that followed) "No fair Mom! How come you get to be like a cow but I can't?"
Thanks kiddo. I'm a wrinkly, pillowy cow. The worst part is he meant them all as nice things!
