Today on the way to school, McKid piped up from the back seat:
"Mama, I'm crazy aren't I?" (Crazy being a good adjective in the four-year-old class)
"Well, honey, I would say that you're FUNNY, instead of crazy."
"Yeah. Well, and I'm CUTE, too!"
Self esteem? We don't suffer from any lack of THAT around HERE!
A few minutes later, McKid says,
"Mama, I'm a smart girl, amn't I?"
"Yes, sweetheart. You're a very smart girl."
"I'm smart. I'm smarter than you are."
"Well, McKid, I'm not so sure about that."
Very dramatic pause.
"Well, Mama, we'll just have to wait and see."
Uh oh. I think I may be in trouble.
