Kids say the funniest things and my Tali is no exception to that.
Yesterday my husband Pete picked her up from school and took her with him to the Tim Horton’s drive-thru. He got himself a coffee and treated her to an apple juice.
After he gave her the juice, he saw her ‘smoking’ with her straw through the rear view mirror. He asked her what she was doing and she replied “I’m smoking daddy.” To which he so eloquently said, “You shouldn’t pretend to smoke ‘cause smoking is stupid.” Then she said, “Daddy, is auntie Ana stupid because she smokes?” Pete replied, “No she’s not stupid but she knows smoking is not good.
And here it comes…Tali says to Pete: “Daddy do you smoke?” Pete replied “No I don’t” and Tali blurts, “Then how come I hear mommy calling you stupid all the time?”
In my defence, I don’t call my husband stupid all the time. The moral of the story is: watch what you say in front of your kids (even if it’s muttered under your breath sometimes) – oh and also, smoking is bad.
