The Little People

Bloggie friends!

My work colleague was relating how one evening, she told her five year old she was happy at losing a bit of weight, only for her son to point at her belly and say, “But you still got a big tummy, mummy!”

Talk about being brought back down to earth by little people!

Charlie says: I think I hear next door preparing my snacks.


Here's to a truthful Thursday!

Yet another reason why we have no little people in our house!

Jemi Fraser said...

Yikes!! Kids do have a way of cutting to the heart of the matter - and not always in the way we'd like :)

Manzanita said...

WOW.....from the mouths of babes comes the truth. Not always the truth we want to hear.

Out of the mouths of babes!

Hope you are having a great week. I have not blogged in several days but have been trying to visit some of my bloggy friends..loved Charlies picture.

Whew...I'm glad I don't have a little one to judge my tummy! It might not be a pleasant conversation. :(

Plain Jane said...

At what age to children learn to stop telling the truth?

Ellie said...

LOL. Children always tell it how it is!

fairyhedgehog said...

Here's to a tactful Thursday instead!

Madeleine said...

ROFL! Awh bless! Off to make a snack too :O)

Marg said...

Out of the mouths of babes. Charlie, that is such a good picture of you. You need to hurry over to the neighbors to get those treats.

Kea said...

I think I can leave a comment now (Blogger problem).

"Out of the mouth of babes" is what I had wanted to write. And that I hope she told her son it was all his fault, thus giving him fodder for future therapy sessions.

Why do children tell the truth when you don't want them to?
Charlie hurry and get your snacks before someone noms them for you.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

That is a great picture Charlie!!! But you always look mighty fine. Hey, kids do say some funny things some times!

Stephen Tremp said...

Charlie's no dummy. He probably sees a catnip pie cooling in the window sill.

Summer Ross said...

Kids always see it truer than we do.

Truthful Thursday is right! That poor lady going to the trouble to lose weight & then have that happen! I guess he's her weight loss coach!

Charlie must have very nice neighbors if they give him snacks! :)

KarenMcG said...

Oooo, Charlie, it looks like you've got a really good vantage point for when those neighbors put out the treats.

The Chair Speaks said...

Nice profile, Charlie!

Ann said...

Out of the mouth of Babes. Unfortunately. Have a wonderful Thursday.

Susan Fields said...

Children are brutally honest! My youngest tells me things all the time I'd really rather not hear. I guess tact is something that comes with age. :)

Hilary said...

so close, and yet so far... Kids so crack me up!

Ginger Jasper said...

Out of the mouths of babes indeed. I hope the neighbours gave you snacks.. Hugs GJ x

Talli Roland said...

Haha! You can always rely on kids to give it to you straight!

Happy Thursday to you and Charlie!

The Golden Eagle said...

LOL.

It can be a bit surprising to find out what other people see. :P

Words A Day said...

Ah! Sweet honesty! (hope he grows out of it!)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

"out of the mouths of babes"

Did Charlie ever get his snacks?

xoxoxo

Repositório said...

Children... are like this, a little cruel sometimes! Hehehe!
Charlie: good meal!!

The Words Crafter said...

Yeah buddy, little kids will give it to ya straight, whether you want it or not! Think I'm going next door, too :))

Daniela said...

that is so funny. My mommies human bean once said "Mommy, you're not fat, you're fluffy". He's grown now and doesn't remember it, but mommy smiles every time she thinks of it.

Almost forgot - I need to send you your prize but you've not replied to my emails or comments about it. I can send an Amazon e-voucher to your email but I'm worried it will get lost. Please let me know what you want to do. Your prize is waiting for you!

Margo Benson said...

Kids really do tell it as it is....bless 'em!

Thanks so much for dropping by, have a great weekend!

Karen Jones Gowen said...

Once my son called my mom-so-fat. He's still embarrassed by that but I thought it was funny. He had a friend named Matt whose nickname was Matt-so-fat, thus the confusion LOL.

LTM said...

William Kendall said...

Ouch! Double ouch!

Theresa Milstein said...

That. is. awful.

Once, when my daughter was about three, we went to my aunt and uncle's house. While we ate dinner, she turned to my uncle and said, "Don't talk with your mouth full."
