Mouths of babes

Some things my seven year old has said to me recently:

In response to my admiration for her smooth skin, in comparison with my ageing hands, "But it doesn't make any difference Mum. You don't feel different inside just because you've got smooth skin."

At the end of a conversation about whether I might ever have another baby, "But it would have to be a girl, if you did have one. Because it would be a waste of a baby if it was a boy."

This morning as we walked to school, "I like that outfit on you. It makes you look young."

Ha!
