Children don't really understand the idea of being polite; even when its hard not to be. Elisabeth is no different in that regard.
This morning I took her to Stone Drug after her doctor's appointment for a UTI to get her some medication. Walking in the door right in front of us was a punk teenager with EXTREMELY baggy pants. He was talking on the cell phone and not paying attention to anything around him. As he walked his pants started sliding down his behind and after 5-6 steps, his pants fell down to his knees! I was appalled because I didn't want to see his brick red boxers (with a nasty logo on the bum)and I certainly didn't want Elisabeth exposed to that. The guy got off of his phone and reached behind him to pull up his pants.
Without missing a beat Ellie said really loudly: "Mommy, why doesn't he wear pants that fit? He looks so silly with those pants! Mommy, you said we wear pants not to show our underwear! He's not obeying his mommy!"
It was all I could do not to start laughing! I know he heard everything she said I hope he actually thinks about it!
Can she call it like she sees it or what?
