Honestly.


One of the best things about children, can also potentially be one of the most embarrassing things about them.  They are so terribly honest.  To make matters worse, when they are nearing three years old they don't yet know about how sometimes being completely honest can be rather unacceptable.  I was grocery shopping with Julian last weekend, and we were waiting in line at the deli counter.  The ladies at our deli counter are very friendly, but as a result the line up can get fairly long as they like to have a little chat with each customer.  Julian was sitting in the shopping cart, quietly observing his surroundings.  There was an older woman ahead of us in line, and I could tell by her body language that she was becoming annoyed with the wait.  Crossed arms.  Furrowed brow.  I didn't realize that Julian was noticing the same thing until he announced, in a booming voice:  "Mommy, that lady is not happy."  Then, even LOUDER:  "Mommy, that lady is GRUMPY!".
