There is nothing like a seven year old to boost your confidence and let you know you are special.
Some days that is.
On other days young-ish children are very good at saying it as it is and saying exactly what they see.
Like this morning as we are about to walk out of the front door.
IJ: Mum, I can see a white hair on your head.
Me: Can you? Oh. I’ll have to die it then.
IJ: You’ll have to do on a diet? Will Diet Coke make it brown again?
Me: No dye it, with hair dye.
IJ: I don’t want you to die.
Me: I’m just going to get rid of the white hair, that’s all.
IJ: Oh good. Because I think I saw more than one.
Kids. Don’t you just love ‘em?
