Not Much, Just Some More Great Compliments from My Son

So yesterday I was sitting in my room, and Tristan came and sat down in my lap. While sitting there, he asked me if I still had a tiny baby in my belly. I told him I didn't. Do you know what his response was? "Well, your tummy is still big, Mommy." Grrrreaaat. Thanks, Tristan! Of course he would say that right when I'm feeling pretty good about my weight loss!
Then today while at Target, I told him a couple of times to leave Asher alone and to be quiet for a minute so I could think (I, unwisely, went to Target without a list and was trying to remember what I needed to get). After the second or third time of me telling him to be quiet for a minute, he said this to Asher, "Asher, Mommy's crabby." What?! Are you kidding me? I asked him where he heard such a thing. He told me Little Bill, but I'm not sure if he heard it there or not. It was funny, but I couldn't let him know I thought so.
I guess kids just say what everyone else is thinking. You gotta admire their frankness and honesty, even if it hurts.

Love the brutal honesty of their little minds!! Sunday I picked HC up from her class and her teacher told me "HC told me you didn't get enough sleep last night!" LOVELY!! I wonder what else was followed by that comment that the teacher chose to keep to herself!!!!

By the way - you do NOT have a big belly! I do not think that was Tristan being brutally honest but him repeating what he may hear you say on days you feel less than pretty!? You look great!!!

I agree with MorningSong! I haven't the slightest clue where Tristan got the big belly comment from! You are super super skinny!

Tristan is one funny little boy! Gotta love how they speak their mind.....sometimes! =P

You ladies are too kind. I promise I wasn't fishing for compliments. The ole tummy does need some toning! There are some things nursing just can't fix. :)
