It's a good thing my self-esteem isn't based on how Buddy feels about me. A few weeks ago I was stressed so I was just planning on staying home all day and doing housework. I did take a shower, but after that I went to the gym and I never did my hair or makeup or anything. Halfway through the day, Buddy looked at me and said, "Mom have you showered today?" I don't really look any too great on a good day, but gosh, that's pretty bad when your son can tell when you haven't gotten ready for the day.
And then today, he asked me, "When did your sweatshirt get too small for you?"
In his defense, he just grew out of his clothes, so I've said that to him a few times lately. But again, that's not good at all when your son notices you're also hitting a growth spurt.
