Total Honesty

We were expecting my friend Gretchen and her little boy (who is exactly Jack's age - same birthday!) for a play date a couple weeks ago. Jack was going to sit on the front porch swing and wait for them to arrive while I took a much needed post-workout shower. Just as I was stepping out of the shower, Jack came into the bathroom asking that I join him on the porch to wait for our friends.

"But, Jack," I said, "I need to get some clothes on."

"No, don't get dressed, come NOW, " he begged me.

"Well, then I'll be naked. What will Gretchen say when she sees me on the porch naked?" I asked.

Jack eyeballed me standing there in my towel and responded, "Mommy, she'd say you look really good!"

Hard to argue with that!

My youngest, very lovingly, rubs my thigh and says "Oh, Mama. I just love your lumpy-bumpy legs." I wish I felt the same way about them!
