4 Year Old Honesty

My sister’s family stayed with mine over the holiday weekend.  The weather was great so we spent a good deal of time outside playing in the yard.  During one of our play sessions, my neighbors decided to get into a verbal spat in front of their house.  It was pretty intense at times.  My 4 year old niece piped up, “what are they doing?…adults aren’t supposed to fight.”  I explained sometimes adults get mad too and don’t always handle it well.  I told her it really wasn’t any of our business and we shouldn’t watch.  She responded in a relatively loud voice, “I’m trying not to watch but I can’t seem to look away.”  It was priceless and so true.  My neighbors wrapped up their argument shortly after her comment.  I hope they heard her and had the good sense to be embarrassed.
