Kids are cute, right?
But they’re also brutally honest. Kids have a tendency to tell it like it is.
I suppose that’s just a part of their innocence. But it doesn’t make their honest words hurt any less.

Was having a father-daughter moment with my then 6 year old. She was worried about something but was struggling to open up to me. Eventually she did.

She: if you’re still alive.
“Your glasses are weird, what do you look like without them?” takes them off “Ew, put them back on.”

“Thanks. I love you. Where’s your mom?”
Kid: Daddy why don’t you have boobs.
Me: boys don’t have boobs.
Kid: why does uncle John have boobs?

At the end of her message, I heard my daughter yell, “who are you talking to!?”
