Mama, you’re always dissing yourself

We were emptying the dishwasher together the other morning, and I can’t even remember what we were talking about, but I must have said something negative about myself when Mr 9 says, “Mama, you’re always dissing yourself.”

So, yeah. I didn’t really know how to respond and mumbled a “Yeah, I guess I do. I really shouldn’t do that hey?”

How did this kid get so wise!? He’s been quietly watching. Taking it in. And then he calls me on it. Straight up. I mean, seriously, what type of example am I setting for the boys if I can’t accept a compliment with a graceful “thank you” or be proud of stuff I’m good at?

It’s stuff like this that confirms our children are our greatest teachers. Have your kiddos ever floored you with their wisdom?
