There is nothing like a 5 year old boy to keep you humble

Ben asked once why I was putting on make-up. I replied, "To look pretty."
He tilted his head, looked puzzled then said, "Hmmmm....it 's not working."

Ben slept on our floor the last few nights as we had overnight guests for the weekend for our nephew's graduation from AF boot camp. I was informed this morning:

"Mom, you snore! You sound like a cow. I had to sleep with my hands over my ears!"

Yes, I am familiar with the compliments paid by short people. At least you weren't naked. Taking a shower with a toddler is only for those with iron-clad self esteem. Or those (such as myself) who just really needed a shower and couldn't manage one solo.

HAHAHAHA!!!

Sarah says that I sound like a cow too!

And I've been told by little people that makeup doesn't work on me either. I guess I'm immune to it. :p

lol I knew about the makeup thing but I didn't hear about the snoring.

The only people who ever say that "your makeup doesn't work/is dumb/why are you wearing it" are the 14-year-old and the 9-year-old.
