How to embarrass your parents - A lesson

I took Jr. on a list of social errands. We go to this house and this lady tells Jr.

You are a very pretty Girl !

Jr. with a shy look and turning her head from side to side

I KNOW !!

I was just shocked. "Thank you" , would have been an acceptable answer ! But, "I know" ?????

What ever happened to being modest ?

The lady gave me a look which pretty much said "So this is how you raise your daughter ? you are in big trouble mister "..

I couldnt agree more..

:D The reason for the smile being, I was more or less in the same situation couple of weeks ago, the other people involved were my colleague and his teenage son. Not only did the teenage son respond to my compliment as 'Yeah I know', but also added to it the father was beaming with pride at the child's response.

Kids are adept at doing this and more! Its just a matter of time before the junior moves to being senior. She would learn all the niceties and more!
For sometime, she is just going to say whats there on her mind. These are fleeting years. Make the most of it !

Hilarious :). Your kid is normal for this decade :). One of my sister's friend complimented by niece on her third birthday saying "Nive, you are very pretty" and my niece response was "Oh no, I am gorgeous " :).
