My Six Year Old Critic

-Or- “Why I Don’t Have Pictures of My New Socks”

Knittymama: Hey, did you delete my sock pictures off the camera?

Little Man: Yeah. I needed space to make a movie.

KM: But I hadn’t put them on the computer yet. I needed them for my blog post tonight. You’re not supposed to use that camera, anyway.

LM: You can take more.

KM: But it’s dark out now, they won’t look as nice.

LM: Mom, they are dumb looking socks anyway.

KM: You think my socks look dumb? Why do they look dumb?

LM: I don’t know… they’re just dumb. The colors are dumb.

KM: Brown and turquoise are not dumb. And you’re not supposed to use that camera.

LM: We’ll those are dumb looking socks and you shouldn’t put them on your blog. And I want my own camera.

KM: Yeah, like I’m going to buy a camera for a kid who tells me my socks are dumb. And I’m not buying you a camera anyway.

LM: But mom, they ARE dumb.

KM: I think I just need to leave the room now.

    Maybe if you jab him with your needles every time he makes a remark like that he’ll learn to shut up.
    Can you tell I don’t have kids?

  3. When my children get like this I start worrying about the teen years. Because, really? It’s going to get worse?

  4. And he’s just 6?! Oh, dear.

    Gotta love six-year-olds. I’m sure your socks are lovely – I love that color combination!

  6. Yea – I think I’d want to see the movie…

  7. hmmm… I’m not sure if it’s more discouraging that he’s making a movie which I can’t seem to do with any accuracy, or that he’s calling your socks dumb.

    I think this is 6… I think it gets better… I think… I hope…

    Your socks aren’t dumb. 😀

  8. very nice socks. I love the simple pattern. It goes well with the twist of color in the yarn.
