From the Do Not Take Yourself Too Seriously Department

After my four-year-old and I turned the department store upside down looking for a bathing suit for me, we finally found a black-and-white one-piece that we both liked. I tried on the suit and modeled it for her. It was a hit.

“Mommy, you look so pretty,” she squealed. “You look just like Shamu the whale.”

    Ouch…out of the mouth of babes.

    That reminds me of one of my favorite memories from college. My friends and I were sitting around the cafeteria. It must have been halloween or some sort of costume ball or something going on because folks were dressed up in costumes.

    There was this one girl who was dressed up like the Chick Filet Holstein cow.

    One of my good friends, not known for being tactful, was pointing out some of the better costumes that he liked. Without thinking, and much louder than he intended, piped up with, “Hey! That girl looks like a cow!”

    Heard the crickets chirping on that one…

    See? Size and beauty are not mutually exclusive! Kids know! 😉

    In seminary, I had a favorite red velvet dress that was my staple around the holidays. My two year old son wanted to give the the best compliment he knew…. “Mommy! You look JUST like “Bob-the-Tomato!”
