As we were on our trip back from Grand Rapids to home (which took a lot longer then usual with a 3.5 month old) we were driving through Gary, Indiana/ Now for any of you that have ever driven through or around Gary, you know the smell that accompanies this city which is due to the large part to the steel mills all around the city. For those of you who have never had the luxury to experience this, it is a VERY poignant sulfur smell.
Anyway, we were driving though Gary and Diva-J says to J-Mom…
Diva-J – “What’s that smell?
Diva-J – “It smells bad”
Diva-J – “Is it Daddy?”
J-Mom – “No, it’s not Daddy… it’s from those factories over there”
Needless to say I was at first shocked as I don’t think of myself as someone who smells but maybe my daughter does…but then at the same time, I was also about to roll on the floor laughing at her question/statement. J-Mom did a good job at keeping her composure as well as she also was about to crack up as well.
I guess this just goes to show you the funny things that kids have to say and the candor at which they say them!
What kinds of things have your kids said to make you take pause or simply bite your tongue?
