Remember that comment that kids are sponges and parrots? They soak up everything and spit it back out, often at the wrong time.
Everytime we go to a grocery store called Publix they have give a free cookie to kids.
One day we are walking down the plaza headed towards Publix.
My daughter asks. “Can I have a cookie?”
“Yes, but only one.”
We turn the corner and there is a overly large man in a Publix shirt sitting on a bench eating.
My daughter then says…..
“But not that guy. He can’t have a cookie because he is fat.”
We were close enough he could have heard. We avoided eye contact and walked faster.
Needless to say we changed how we described foods after that.
