out of the mouths

I was standing in front of my open wardrobe desperately looking for something to wear with my brown trousers that wouldn't look dark, depressing and muddy (told you my clothing sich was serious) when a snowsuit-clad munchkin came in and asked what I was doing. I told her I just needed a shirt and then we'd go.

Honey, she said to me full of gentle persuasion and compassion, but in all earnestness and brooking no nonsense, we don't have time for a shirt. We're late for school.

How cute and funny! Always interesting to hear their version of us, especially when they're not consciously copying us.

Oh my goodness! Last week, I told N that I loved him and he responded, "I love you too, Honey!"

Sometimes it's pretty stinking sweet when we hear ourselves in them :)
