The brutal honesty of my children: sometimes I could do without it. But until they learn what "tact" is, I get things like this -
I'm telling Daniel and Greg how at my class at the Y we were jumping in the air and trying to kick our behinds with our heels. Greg immediately started demonstrating, the little string bean, while I showed him how I couldn't do it so well.
Daniel observed this and said simply, "You just have to lose weight, Mom."
Yes, duly noted. Thank you, Daniel. This is WHY I'm at the Y.
A few minutes later, as he was headed downstairs, Greg yells out, "MOM - YOU'RE GREAT!!"
I almost sat on the floor and cried.
