mouthing off

Reported during the handing off of M at the end of our vacation:

Look Grandma, there's an Indian statue. The White Man took the Indians' land a long long time ago and that was really not very nice. Bad White Men, Grandma. Bad.

I've never been more proud.

I wish she could have been around to talk to my great great grandfather the french fur trapper who quite literally TOOK a wife.

bgirl said...

tell little M!

Kevin said...

That is awesome!

It reminds me of a scene from Addams Family Values. Not exactly the best of movies, but an excellent scene nonetheless.

Here is the link.

Mrs. Chicky said...

I don't think there's any question about whose little girl she is.

Geneviève said...

Well trained girl.

Haven't you acquired a piece of land in some former Indian territory too?

Kyla said...

She is your girl after all. :)

It never ceases to amaze me how astute young children are--oh, what we could learn from them...

Oh for a picture of grandma's face.

How is it that she is more intelligent than people triple (and more!) her age?? Fantastic job, mama!

carrie said...

I love it when kids tell it like it is!

Glad you're back and safe! :)

That's so much fun! But then I'm waiting for my son to declare loudly in the presence of his very catholic grandmother that, well, other people believe in Jesus and such but we don't. And I found that maybe we have over-trained him a bit when he declared he'd never set foot into an airplane because that would be polluting the air. And that's bad.

And then when we had a nice glass of wine at dinner he told us off for drinking alcohol. Oops.

Wise innocence struck again! Put in a picture that would be a colorful bloom.

Christine said...

i could kiss her.

Jennifer said...

Go, M!

I love it when we pass a construction site and my kids sigh and shake their heads and ask why George Bush keeps cutting down all of the trees. Slightly skewed, but...oh, well. ;)

Victoria said...

I love it!

ms chica said...

I want to adopt M as my role model. I need a good role model.

She's amazing, just like her mom.

"from the mouths of babes"... grin.

Redneck Mommy said...

LOL. I love it.

Reminds me of my girl after I explained to her that Disney's version of Pocahontas wasn't exactly accurate. She would tell anyone who listened how the bad white folk were mean to the Indians. She was three.

miss you.

I love your little girl.
