You come within 50 feet of her with Peanut M&M's in your mouth and she will say, "What are you eating Mom?" Or put a new deodorant on..."Mommy what's that smell?" She really is in tune with the world around her. I love this about her, yet at times it can get a little tricky.
I have nightmares in regards to the whole "kids saying embarrassing things" scenario because of my mom's stories about myself. I guess I get what I deserve.
One of my favorite stories, about my own embarrassing commenting, took place when I was about three years old. My mom and I were waiting in the checkout line at Central Hardware. My mom said the minute she looked at the check out lady, she had a bad feeling. To top it off, one of my mom's friends she hadn't seen in a long time was in line also. The next thing she knew I was screaming, "WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER EYEBROWS?!" My mom said it was horrifying. Then after a long pause the rest...... "IT LOOKS LIKE SHE PAINTED THEM ON!" The nice checkout lady had no eyebrows of her own, only dark drawn on pencil eyebrows. What is a mom to do? I was only telling the truth!
Little Sophie reminds me of myself in this sense everyday lately. She just turned three and loves to tell you EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.
A few days ago, Sophie and Mia were outside playing on their play set in the backyard. Our next door neighbors were doing a little landscaping. Apparently they were getting hot, because the husband took off his shirt at one point. Sophie was astonished at this and yelled up to me, as I was in the kitchen cleaning up the lunch time mess, "Hey Mom!! Why is Katie's* Dad so NUDY?!"
*Name changed to protect their identity ;)
So I did what I thought was best and just ignored her. Well she just kept yelling it over and over again. I finally popped my head out the door and waved her down. I gave her the PLEASE JUST WORRY ABOUT YOURSELF look. This always does the trick.
I know this particular example isn't as bad as it gets, or as bad as what I have experienced in the past, as well as what all of you have experienced on your Motherhood Journey! But it just reminded me of how innocent and adorable little kids are. The cute and funny things they say.... this leads me to another post in itself.... stay tuned for that!
