Conversations with…: Brutal Honesty

My daughter is very honest. About the only thing she’ll lie about is if she’s pooped.

Most often, her honesty is about her intentions. Especially after a Time Out:

Us: Now, why did you get a time out?
Daughter: pullin’ kitty’s tail
Us: Are you going to do it again?
Daughter: Yeah.

or:

Us: Why did you get a time out?
Daughter: Jumpin’ on couch
Us: Are you going to do it again?
Daughter: Yeah.

But sometimes it is just general observations. As she grows older, she’ll learn about such things. But, for now, we have to deal with conversations such as this:

Daughter: Daddy have teeth
Me: That’s right. I have teeth. Do you have teeth? 
Daughter: Yeah… Daddy have yellow teeth.
Me: Yeah… thanks for pointing that out. What color are mommy’s teeth?
Daughter: uhmm… yellow!
