Honesty Isn't Always Pretty

Mommy: "Guess what, Sarah? John McCain has picked a lady named Sarah as his vice-presidential running mate. And you know what else? She's only one year older than I am."

(No response)

Now, with Sarah Palin addressing the Ohio crowd on MSNBC

Sarah: "She looks younger than you."

Mommy (not knowing when to keep my mouth shut): "Well, she is only one year older..."

Sarah: "Yes, but she looks much younger."

You have to admit, you set yourself up a bit there.

I wonder if you could hear my laughter through the computer screen? That is definitely the coolest part of kids, they just don't have that "filter" yet :)

Such innocence.

MereCat said...

Ahh, crap. "It's special makeup, dear, they use it on ALL the ladies on TV."

Tracy said...

Sigh. Well, Palin does look great at 44, and she was a contestent for Miss Alaska, so she's got that going for her, too.

Gotta love all the honesty, right? :)

I wish we lived closer, too...having somebody around that was as enthusiastic as I am about all this craziness would be fun.

How funny!! Kids are always great at telling it like they see it! Isn't it neat that our kids are growing up seeing that ANYONE can be whatever they want to be? Lovin' this time in our countries history...and I'm really proud to be a part of it all!

Oh excellent. Thank you, my child. Is this like when Sam talks about how much he loves to snuggly with my belly because "it's so squishy"?

I was with my 5 year old nephew (now 20) on the beach and he starts playing with another little boy. The little boy says," I'm here with my grandma." Then he points to me.
"Is that YOUR grandma?"
I never wore that floral bathing suit again. (That's what I blamed it on.)
YEESH.

I love that you wrote about Sarah! Afterall she's (a) My Governor and (b) my boss (i work for the State).

I got asked by a 3 year old if I had a "baby in there"...this was while I was with both my kids. Um, I think not!

Gotta love kids!

Jenny said...

I don't think she looks younger than you, but I DO think she wears a heck of a lot more makeup. I was so surprised to see he'd chosen her.

Renata said...

Oh no! Did you tell her you looked much younger until she came along? She certainly is a character.

Threeundertwo said...

ROFL! You did sort of set yourself up. Very funny.

Linda said...

Ouch.

Lizz @ Yes, and So is My Heart said...

Yikes. And to think we were excited when they learned to talk!

noble pig said...

That's hilarious. Kids can be so off on age, it cracks me up.

BoufMom9 said...

How funny! Wow! Kids just don't know how to censor themselves, do they? LOL
I said the same thing to my husband, she looks fantastic for not only being 44, but for having only had a baby 5 months ago. WOW!

ps For the record, I would've NEVER known your age ;)

Harris Boys said...

lol...gotta love kids...they just don't have any clue...I love the innocence!

TONYA said...

LMAO. Gotta love kids and their 'honesty'.

Dummy has a little bit of a crush on Sarah ... it's a "sexy librarian thing" according to him.

Whatev ... I can put on glasses and a sharp suit, too.
