discretion

DD has found a new way of expressing herself that largely includes over-sharing. She is blunt. Tell-you-like-it-is, hurt-your-feelings blunt. I think her discretion button is broken.

This wasn't as much of a problem until I began noticing that several of the statements coming out of her mouth began with "My mom said...."

Ok fine, you want to tell someone that they talk too much, must we say it like "My mom said that you talk too much." Aargh!!! And for some reason she is finding it really important to tell the world our personal private business. "Mom gained five pounds" or "Mom's hair was sticking out straight this morning" or "Mom didn't get dressed until after lunchtime yesterday....." It's like being on display twenty four hours a day with this kid. You can't do or say anything you don't want the world to know.

But I've gotta go for now. Cause FSM knows that she'll be telling everyone she knows tomorrow that "Mom was on the computer for hours last night!"

What is it they say? If you want to know the truth about anything, ask a child? Yikes! Better be careful what you say around her!

I understand that. My son was telling Daddy I spent time on the couch or the computer. Brat!!
