Kindergarteners are proof that God has a sense of Humor

I think Art Linkletter was the name of the guy who hosted the show “Kids Say the Darndest Things”.  I’m sure he would appreciate what Cody said to me today.  Cody is a very sweet five year old, who tends to get into trouble from time to time.  I don’t know if it’s because he’s the biggest kid in his class or just a typical boy.  Anyway, today, he attempted to compliment me.  I was working at the table next to his desk and I noticed he was studying everything I was doing.  Finally, he said “Mrs.Brown, you look pretty today.”  “That’s sweet of you to say, Cody.  Thank you” I replied.  Then, in a bashful, yet sweet tone he added “You look like you’re having another baby today.”  I said “I’m not having another baby. I’m just fat.”  Without a blink he said, “I know” and again he added very sweetly, “You look like you’re having another baby today.” 

God knows I need to learn to laugh at myself.  This was certainly the moment for it today.
