A Sincere Compliment
The other day, Mikey was at Mom's house, and she was walking up the stairs, he trailing behind. He said, very sincerely, "I love your bumb, Gramma."
A few days ago, I was putting my contacts in my eyes, and he stopped in the doorway and observed me struggling (Putting in contacts is always a struggle for me. This dang dry Idaho air is a killer). Then he smiled his little dimpley smile and said, "I love your eyeballs, Mama."
And here's the real killer. Ben had been showering, and Micah was also in the bathroom. Since both of them are boys, Ben didn't have a problem emerging from the shower and toweling off in front of Micah. Micah said, again, very sincerely, "I love your pee-pee, Daddy."
Ben didn't quite know what to say to that. If I remember correctly, he said, "Alrighty then..." and made a beeline down to our bedroom to put some clothes on. :)
