dis of the day (so far)

I find children are not good for one's self esteem. Before having a child, I thought they did things like, think their parents were smart, funny, attractive, with-it people. And that they offered up hugs, and "I love you"s willingly. By the time my son was 3, I knew this wasn't the case.

I just got back from picking him up at school. He steps into the car with "You really have to stop doing that!". I ask "what?" thinking, he thinks I am in the wrong lane or something. He says "You look like a little old man who is going blind, with those dark glasses and your frizzy hair".
:(
Oh come on now, how many little old half blind men, have long frizzy hair!

The good news, the sun came out causing the need for the sunglasses.

Ouch. Good point about the frizzy hair/old half blind men dichotomy. I hope you argued that point as it's a good one.

Afraid not, he might have found a counter to my comeback and then what would I have to make myself feel better?
