I have my grand daughter for the weekend. She's almost 10, actually going on twenty something sometimes.She is extremely smart,honest and observant.And she will give you her opinion, when asked for it. But always lovingly, and never rude. Yesterday was one of those days.

We had gotten ready, earluer in the day, with the intent of going and doing something but now quite sure. When we made up our minds and going to a late lunch was in the mix. She looked at me and said "Are you going to change first, Grandma?" HUH??? I asked her "Why? Was there something wrong with what I had on? " she informed me that if I moved certain ways someone could see my bra straps and tell what color it was. And that isn't very lady like.........Maybe if it were white people wouldn't think anything of it.........Oh My Gosh!!!
I explained to her that it was only a small piece of the strap, if I moved right, and you see bras on women on tv all of the time. They could not see the important part of my bra. ( did that sound like a child trying to justify something?) She said "yeah, women shouldn't let men see their bras on tv unless they are married to them. And they are usually white. Not red...."
As was my face about that point also, I think. I went in and changed tops, so the neckline didn't show any of my bra. Although I saw nothing wrong with it to begin with, and I do not let Anyone dictate what I wear. I didn't want her to be uncomfortable. She said she wouldn't be but...........Grandmas have to be a positive influence and role model.
I sure hope she keeps these opinions when she is going through her teenage years...Oh please let that happen....... :-)
I have been lovingly scolded by a 10 year old.. I'm still in shock..........

Well, it's not just grand children....I have a 9 year old daughter and she told me the other day the top I was wearing made my boobs look big. So I say, well thats because they are bigger and i can't really hide them well. So she tells me, but mom you can see the crack between them, you wouldn't want the crack of your butt to show so why do you want the crack of your boobs to show?

Whats a mom to say....

WE are the ones that teach them to be honest and speak their minds...

I know....I know....we teach them to be independent individuals who have their own thoughts and ideas....and they are always amazing me with thier quick wit, observations and humor....it just throws you for a loop when they actually put us on the spot....which seems like my 9 going on 20 year old does quite frequently lately....
