On Saturday, my husband arrived home after a long day coaching. He walked in the door and into the family room where the wee ones and I were having Movie Night With Mommy and eating popcorn. Immediately, he leaned over me to give me a kiss in greeting.

I ummm (ok, so we've been married awhile), shrank back a bit as I inhaled. With an offended look, he insisted he didn't smell that bad. I simply shrugged and returned my attention to the movie and the popcorn Little Miss and I were sharing.

My husband walked over to Mister Man.

I'll get an unbiased opinion. Mister Man, do I smell bad?

After breathing in a whiff, Mister Man leaned back, and with his most earnest expression replied, No, Daddy, you smell much better than bad.


Fortunately, I wasn't the only one dying of laughter. My husband also thought Mister Man's careful wording was hilarious. Gotta love this kid!

My husband refs soccer games, I need to use this line with him. Brilliant... nice one Mister Man.

So cute, and you know I'd totally be shrinking away as well. haha

That could be a catch phrase in your home for many years to come.

What a diplomat!

LOL! That's awesome.

Honest opinio! :)

Tara - Oh, please feel free to steal it.

Melisa - Of course you would!

WeaselMomma - I think it's already become one. How can we not keep that alive?

Unknown Mami - He tries, doesn't he?

NYCPatty - Isn't it? Gotta love what comes from their mouths.

Mister Man knows how to say it just right :) Cute picture too.

Michelle October 22, 2010 at 9:14 PM  

Kelly - Doesn't he though? And this is my boy WITHOUT social skills ;)

the great thing about kids telling you like it is. Now I'm at the stage of getting advice like this from the grandkids.

Emily October 24, 2010 at 12:30 AM  

Mister Man sounds very diplomatic, lol!

Michelle October 24, 2010 at 4:00 PM  

lisleman - It's got to be even better from the grandkids, right? I can only imagine!

Emily - That's the irony. He generally isn't, but I *love* how this one came out.

Kids come up with gems.

Michelle October 24, 2010 at 9:58 PM  

Matty - They absolutely do. If only I were as funny as them. Except I'd want to do it intentionally.

Mrs4444 October 27, 2010 at 8:10 PM  

yeah, b.o. isn't an aphrodisiac for me, either :) haha

Michelle October 28, 2010 at 9:15 PM  

Mrs4444 - Thank goodness? I don't think I could be friends with you if it were ;)
