Conversation with Cordy last Sunday after I got home from BlogHer.
Cordy: Mommy, life just isn’t fair.
Me: Oh? Why do you say that?
Cordy: Because sometimes there are things you can’t do that others get to do.
Me: Yes, that’s true, sweetie. Life isn’t always fair, but you should be thankful for what you do have. Are you upset I went to New York and you didn’t?
Cordy: NO, mommy! I mean like saying things. Grown ups gets to say things that kids would get in trouble for. It’s not fair.
Me: Sorry, Cordy. There are just words that are only for grown ups to say and even then we probably shouldn’t be saying them.
Cordy: Like the other day when daddy called a man f**king…
Me: YES! Uh, yes, like that. Daddy shouldn’t have said that word. At least not in front of you. And you shouldn’t repeat it either.
Cordy: See? It’s just not fair.
Me: No, no it isn’t.
