Scene at Safeway 11/20/2010

Mom (to 5 year old son):  "Come on, you're in the way of that lady!"

I smile down at the little boy.

Son (to mom):  "That is not a lady.  That's a man!"

I can see one of my sons saying the exact same thing at the same age.

Consider yourself lucky, I was SURE that the child would then say, "See, he has whiskers!" (or a mustache or some other equally awful observation!!)

Little darlings have no reticence about saying whatever pops into their cute (BIG MOUTHS) heads! lol!!

Similar thing happened to me when I was pregnant with my first born. I was so sick I had to have a neighbor take me to the OB's office. I always have worn short hair and that day I did not look the least bit feminine. A toddler in the office kept staring at me and finally said in a loud voice "What's wrong with him?!" The mother was mortified. I just held on a little tighter to the container I had at the ready in case I had another episode. That was 27 years ago and it still feels like yesterday!

I hope that you had a great Thanksgiving and that everything is going well.
