From the Mouths of Babes

I just had to share this one with you. When the weather started turning, it became a struggle to get the oldest grand daughter to start dressing warmer. She's well now 6 but was 5 at the begining of school. She was worrying about the way she looked already. She will only wear skirts/skorts. She refused to wear tights because that just doesn't look cool. Huh?

Well after many arguments with her I went out and got her some leggings, so she agreed to wear those under her skirts/skorts. Now that we have been getting snow, she's finally wearing pants on the snowy days.

I sometimes stay at my daughters place to do some cleaning. They keep their place extremely hot, due to her having health problems and is always cold. So I make sure I wear a tank top under a warmer shirt. She had already left for school that particular day, so when she got home I was wearing my tank top.

She comes in and says, "Omah, where is your warm shirt? Omah, why aren't you wearing a warmer shirt? It's cold outside. It's snowing. You can't wear stuff like that now." I had such a hard time answering her as I was trying so hard not to bust up laughing. I pointed to the stool that my shirt was on and then she was okay.

Here we had fought with her for a couple of months trying to get through to the girls that they had to dress properly and now she was scolding me. Too cute. Gotta love 'em.

Omah, you make me smile. I adored this story. It epitomizes many of my exchanges with my son. You just can't win, but at least you can sit back and laugh.

Happy Friday!


PS: I love that you added the New Year's Eve award to your sidebar. Made my day! :)
