Tiny Talk Tuesday

I honestly did not want to take off my jacket. Doing so would reveal my tube top underneath, with which I usually wear a tank top, but this particular day I did not have a tank underneath because I had planned to keep my jacket on. However, I was BURNING UP as I was cleaning up and taking care of the kids. I hate sweating. So, I removed my jacket. My disrobing was met with several gasps coming from the children.

"Umm..Miss Leah? What's holding your shirt up?" L----- asked me.
I wasn't about to answer "my boobs," so I paused before saying, "Nothing."

After she had thought about my tube top shirt through snack time, she said, "One time I went to a store with my mommy and we saw some dresses that didn't have anything holding them up."


I tied my jacket around my shoulders for the rest of the day. And remembered the next time to prepare for the sweltering heat at work with a shirt that has something holding it up.


"What's this, J-----?" I asked one of my little four year~old beauties, holding up a buttercup she had picked for me.

"Ummm...a peanut butter?"
