So tonight Cole, Sutton and I went out to eat together since Mom had a meeting. The boys wanted pizza so we went and got pizza of course. We were standing in line waiting to pay and the young girl working the cash register had quite a bit of black makeup around her eyes. I thought it looked funny but being somewhat of an adult I kept it to myself. Cole on the other hand looked up at me and said, "What's wrong with her eyes daddy?" I smiled at her hoping she didn't hear him and bent down and told Cole that wasn't nice to say and tried to explain to him that she just wore her makeup a little different than he is used to seeing... He's 4 so it was an interesting conversation as you can probably imagine. Anyway, we got our food, paid for it and sat down. Cole was a little quiet which is extremely odd for this son-of-Julie and after a few minutes of what looked like pondering he said,
"Daddy?"
"Yes Coley?"
"You know what I think? I think that girl could play football ‘cause that’s how football players have their eyes."

I could not stop laughing which was funnier because he didn't think it was funny at all... very logical to him. Anyway... thought I'd share.
