Reality Check

Kids are known for having no filter when they speak, and KIC is no exception.  She frequently has those of us who know better laughing at her pointed observations.  She means no harm, but girlfriend has a way of finding your Achilles' heel.

Recently, I was chatting with a friend who has not yet made it to the altar.  This is a point of contention for my friend for many reasons, but as far as I know, KIC remains blissfully unaware of my friend's feelings.  We were having a conversation about getting married.  I had just explained to KIC that marriage isn't just between a man and a woman any more.  For some reason, KIC started to talk about who she knew that was married.

KIC about the friend:  "She's not even MARRIED!!  Mom, you and Dad are on the married list.". (looks at friend). "YOU are  not on the married list."

If you want a good laugh, sit down and have a conversation with KIC.  If you want your self esteem to remain intact, run far far away.
