While in the library bathroom last week, a lady walked in as we were washing our hands.
She was sporting a glorious afro.
Ella looked up at her and said, "You have crazy hair!"
I know she heard because Ella said it crystal clear and there was no else in the bathroom and no loud flushing to muffle her words. The lady graciously pretended to ignore her comment.
Out in the car I explained to Ella that I knew she wasn't being unkind by saying that the lady had crazy hair, but that we have to be careful saying things like that because they can hurt feelings.
I'd love suggestions on how to explain this concept to her!
and...I'm sure some of you have funny stories of your own!
