I love little kids

I got the best compliment the other day.

We went to the farmer's market at the park. I let my older three play on the playground while I pick up the last of the season's fruit. (sob) By the time I head over to the playground to round them up, they have made a new friend. (They always do. It caused some confusion when we had the stranger danger talk.)  I announced that they had 5 minutes and started to walk back to the stroller. As I left I heard their new friend ask Eden if I was their sister.  Eden looked at her like she was crazy.

I just smiled and walked away. . .

I can top you, an adult the other day thought I was about 13... yeah, not much of a compliment when they go that low.

That is so cute. Just go with it. I'm the teenage pharmacist at work. I figure someday I'll be hoping someone mistakes me for a 16 year old. :)

Right yes of course you are...
Your kid isn't fooled tho huh?

Melinda said...

Awesome, I love it when kids say things like that! Especially when they can say such horrible things like "WoW! Your breath smells horrible!" and "Your hair looks really ugly!"

Take the compliments and cherish them. :)
