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, " '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.

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.
