children's honesty is painful

conversation between 5yo son and mom featuring dad:

son: what's that mom?
mom: concealer.
son: what are those red dots on your face mom?
mom: pimples.
son: wow, that stuff is magic. it makes the red dots disappear.
mom: yup. it's concealer.
son: what's concealer?
mom: it's makeup that "conceals" or covers up or hides things.
son: (hestitating) mom, maybe you should use this all the time, so that you (hesitating, looking for the right words) don't always look a little bit ugly.
mom: (rolling eyes) dear, did you hear what your son said?
dad: no
mom: (repeats entire interplay to dad)
dad: BOY! we need to talk.

This was SO funny! And so very like something one of mine would say.... ours usually has something to do with something or other being fat...then one of the kids would add "like mama" and then one would respond, "Yeah but she had all those kids...".

disclaimer:  caution must be taken when reading my blog.  i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will.  older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones.  there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons.  first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past.   second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1.   if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be.  pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
