...kids say the darnedest things.
After a long busy day at work I was eager to get home and pound out some frustration through my feet.
My daughter was her usual chatter box-self.
"Mom, I can tell what natural animal every person has inside." she tells me.
"Oh really." I say
"I am a kitty, brother is a turtle and you are a dog." she says.
"I'm a dog?! What makes you think I am a dog." I ask.
"Your short hair cut."
I ask, "What about my hair cut makes you think I am look like a dog?"
After a pause, (considering whether or not to be honest ?) "Your hair makes you like you have puppy ears." she finally says.
She could have a good point!
After that confidence boosting exchange I feed her
brussel sprouts for supper and headed out for my run with LBM. I enjoyed his baby jibberish the entire run. But wondered if he was agreeing with his sister about my haircut.
It was so hot and humid and I DID take water! See I can learn. My shirt is completely soaked and I was exhausted when I finally got to stop. 6.5 miles of sweat (51:32)
After my run it was LBM's turn to rack up the miles. He decided to do some speed work with Mom chasing him.
How great it would be to have him running beside me in the years to come. S'ghetti girl would not join us for a run. She was hiding inside enjoy an entire evening with NO homework!
LBM says, "Mom you don't look at all like a dog. Now let me win!"
