Out of the mouths of babes...

Day one of this nanny job:
G- age 5 1/2 N- Age 3

Nate: Mrs. Stephanie, what is that thing in your nose?

Me: That's a nose ring Nate. Like an earring, but for your nose.

Grace: Nate, it's called in-di-vi-du-al-i-ty. Mrs. Stephanie has individuality. Can you say it with me?

G & N: IN-DI-VI-DU-AL-I-TY

Day two:
(While at the pool getting our table set up with ALL our stuff)

Grace: Mrs. Stephanie, you have the pools reflection on your legs.

Me: {Looks at legs and tries to figure out how on earth the pool is reflecting off her legs}
Grace, come show me. I don't see what you are talking about.

Grace: Right here....and here....and here {pointing to the stretch marks on my upper, upper thigh/bottom)

Me: Oh. My. Gosh. {laughs hysterically and then dashes to the locker room to see just how bad this must be to look like the pools reflection}

Kids say the darndest things!! I'm pretty sure I will never forget those two days as long as I live!!
