A 6 Year Old Moment

While walking home from school yesterday, the Princess shared a fascinating piece of news she had learned about her new friend at school. Let's call her Kayla.

"MOM!! I just found out....Kayla was a CHINESE BABY!"

To which I replied, "um...yes. I knew that. She's Chinese."

The Princess stopped walking and just stood and stared at me. "She is?"

Me: "Yes, so is her mom."

The Princess: "Oh." Long pause. "OH. I guess she is." And then went on to lavish her praises on how wonderful her new friend is and what they play and how they're getting to be good friends.

I love 6 year olds and their ability to just see a new friend.

We could all learn a thing or two from them.
