Other people's kids say the darndest things.

Little girl at Tae Kwon Do: Are you Girl Child's mother?

Me: Yes.

Little Girl: You are BEAUTIFUL.

Me: Why, thank you!

Little Girl: You are MUCH MORE BEAUTIFULER than my mom!

Me, glancing sideways at Little Girl's very large and very disgruntled looking mom: Oh, no I wouldn't say that.

(Did not say, "I wouldn't say that OR SHE'LL STAB ME". As I've mentioned before, I'm no fool)

Little Girl: But you are! You are much, much, much, MUCH-

Little Girl's mom: SHANAYNAY! LET'S GO!

Little Girl, after a moment's pause: You are MUCH nicer than my mom too!

Little Girl's mom: NOW SHANAYNAY!

Little Girl, conspiratorily: See?

Me: Um...see you later, honey.

great comment for you! kind of sad to think that the little girl doesn't think too highly of her own mom.. :(

Sounds like Shanayay's mom was having a bad day. ;-) Good day for you though!

Silly girl. But the funny part is we call one of my son's friends Shanaynay.

Little kids usually speak the truth....and I agree.

She was probably right.

I so would have been tempted to be all, "Uh-huh! You're right, suga! I'm am prettier!"
