Everyone's a critic.

The kids and I were in the car this afternoon. I was taking Peter for an "Oops! School starts tomorrow and my kid's hair is poking up in all sorts of crazy directions and I don't want the teacher to think he's a dunce" haircut.

I was in a good mood and I started singing. The radio was off and it was just me and my voice. And as I was singing I was thinking how good I sounded.

And then I hear a soft little voice from the backseat timidly say, "Mommy, can you stop doing that?"

"Doing what, Peter?" I asked.

"That singing. Can you stop doing that? It doesn't sound very good."

Is it any wonder that I'm excited that school starts tomorrow?

Leave it to kids to keep parents humble!

Haha, that's funny (for me, probably not so much for you). :)

Ouch. Sometimes when I sing along to the radio, Fiver will say "Mom? Can you stop that? because I can't hear the good people singing."

i think the reason it bothers us so bad when our children tell us something we don't like is because we know it's the truth...they just don't lie when it comes to things like that!!
