My child has no filter, as they say. None whatsoever. Whatever she's thinking in any given moment is exactly what comes out her mouth. Now it's funny. Someday it won't be, so we're trying to talk about kindness and good manners and all those important things. I'm not sure it's really getting through yet.
Still, you may get a chuckle out of some of the things she's popped off with lately.
The first one comes from our annual end-of-the-year picnic for the homeschool co-op. One of the older boys had a mohawk. Natalie had never seen a mohawk before, so naturally she commented on it. Specifically, she told him he had "squirrel hair." Thankfully, both the boy and his mother found this hilarious.
The next incident came at a church brunch as I sat chatting with one of the ladies. A lady who just happened to have white hair. Natalie said her hair was old. Not the lady herself, mind you--her hair.
Since we're baby-sitting a baby boy during the day now, we have baby boy diaper changes. And yes, Natalie has noticed the difference in baby boy parts as opposed to baby girl parts. She asked, "What's that purple thing on his bottom?" As I explained the difference between boys and girls, she said, "So it just popped out? Like a belly button?"
Yeah, sure. Just like that.
Of course, when Sarah first saw a little boy getting a diaper change at my parents' house, she asked why he had a tail on his bottom. ;)
We're working on that filter, really. But in the meantime, if you know us personally and Natalie pops off with something in your presence, please don't take it to heart. :-p
