Out of the Mouths of Babes...

I love children for many reasons, but I especially love their honesty. A child will not hold back, if they tell you they love you, it's because they really do. They speak what is on their minds, which is a trait that many of us would do well to acquire. No beating around the bush, no sugar-coating, just saying what they mean, when they mean it. It's very simple, and refreshing. Well, most of the time.

We were all walking to the van. I had Grant and Marty was behind me with Emma and Ben. Emma suddenly yells out, "Mommy, you look like a penguin!"

I guess I have started to waddle. Thanks a lot, Emma.

:) I wonder where Emma got her "quirky" sense of humor... hmmm. Must look into. I am pleased that you survived the shopping, black Friday frightens me! I always spend it hiding in the house with the blinds closed!
