DAXX'S OPINION ON THE MATTER @ 8 YEARS OLD

Driving home from school I heard Daxx from the back of the van, Loudly:

DAXX: "Ahhhh! That is COMPLETELY Inappropriate!"

ME: "What's Inappropriate?"

DAXX: "LOOK! That woman's skirt is way too short and That is her husband!! I can't believe he's letting her wear that skirt so short!"

ME: "You don't think women should show their legs like that?"

DAXX: "She should be embarrassed! I bet her husband is embarrassed!"

She was like, maybe 25 years old and thin. Who knew an 8 year old would notice such things and have such powerful opinions about it? Wonder if his mind will change in 4 years? Hmmm...

I've only really talked about modesty with Jaibrian while picking out swim suits. We get swim shorts and swim shirts. Apparently he's been listening or watching or something. I like it. :o)

I just found your blog, actually I found an older version because Daxx was younger. He reminds me so much of one of my boys, I was laughing so much, my husband had to come see. It was the post abt the Soft soap and the bubbles and then the ceiling fan/clothes hanger "art". thanks for letting us peek into your life. going back to read more!

Thank you! I'm glad his antics made you laugh. :o) He is such a blessing to us.

We found out, last year, that some of his "rambunctiousness" is due to a mental illness that was passed down to him by his birth mother. He has been a trooper and is doing wonderfully now that he's properly medicated. We are seeing much more smiles and fun and a lot less sadness in him. I'm thankful that he has blessed you too. :o)
