The other day I was helping in one of my daughter's classrooms.

That evening my daughter said to me, "Oh Mom, my friends thought you were so cute!"

"Cute?" I said, wondering what the catch was. "You mean because I'm short and chubby?" I asked with a smile.

"No!" she said laughing. "Because you're old. You know how we all think old people are cute."

Uh huh. Yeah. The joys of having a child late in life. Well, at least I'm a cute old mom.

I am guiding a group called Catechesis of the good Shepherd. One of the children at the first class said I looked "funny," nt meaining the amusing kid of funny. Huh" I answered. "it is you hair," he responded. My hair is curly and mostly gray.
"That is the way God made me, "I answered. "No matter how many times I wash it this is what it will look like."

is is possible that the child doesn't know anyone with gray hair?
