“Mom?” Bennett said to me in the van last week. “Do you know who you look like with those sunglasses on?”
Enter many quick thoughts here of answers like, “a movie star,” “a singer,” or maybe, “Reese Witherspoon.” Ok, ok, he doesn’t even know who she is, but seriously, who WOULDN’T want to look like her? She’s adorable.
“A robber!” was his quick reply.
Enter ego being crushed.
There are many, many instances in a mom’s life when her children’s behavior, words, attitudes, etc. cause humility to creep in. Kids are a good reminder that we aren’t naturally good at doing a lot of things.
Or that we aren’t nearly as cute in oversized sunglasses as we think we are.
(this post was inspired by Nicole’s recent post about her daughter’s reaction to her going-out clothes…go read it! It’s so nice to know we’re not alone, ya know?)
