Tact

Insensitive 3 year old daughter: “Mommy you have a big bottom.”
Mommy with all the extra junk in her trunk: “Sweetie it is not nice to talk about people’s body parts.”
Daughter: “Mommy you have a bottom”
… Mommy (again): “Sweetie it is not nice to talk about people’s body parts.”
Daughter: “Mommy you are big.”
… I am not convinced I am making any progress in my goal of educating Stumps on the importance of tact. However it is worth noting that this morning I went to work sporting unmistakable “I Give Up” hair and thus far the child has not called me out.
