“Not everyone thinks looking like a giraffe is a good thing, Honey.”
We were in line at a store when my son told a lady that she was pretty. She lit up and thanked him. Before she could get the words completely out, Cole told her that she was so pretty because she looked like a giraffe. He told her that giraffes were one of his favorite animals.
The woman was not so impressed with the comparison. Needless to say, I think my son’s flattery needs some work. But she did kind of look like a giraffe.
We were in the car and he just didn’t understand why the lady stopped smiling and didn’t seem happy. So I had to say the above statement.
Chalk another one up to things I never thought would never come out of my mouth.
So what have you said lately? Please share, don’t make me feel all alone. :-)
