This morning, like most mornings, after the children were dressed they came out to give me hugs and morning greetings!
First Keianna came up to me with a big smile and a hug. “Goodmorning mommy! You have a big nose, mommy!”
Then Kendra rounded the corner, with her sweet sunshine smile, snuggling up close she patted my belly (five months pregnant) and said, “You have a BIG belly, mommy!”
I was still laughing at Kendra’s comment as Keegan came running up, arms out-stretched for me to lift him into my lap. After giving me one of his signature bear-hugs, he pointed at a pimple on my chin and said, “Mommy owie!”
Well, with my acne, big nose and enormous belly, I must be quite a fright!
Children–quite without pretense! (But it may be time for some further lessons on tact!)
