Sadia Says the Darndest Things

If you have kids, you know that they speak the God-honest truth, and sometimes to a fault (a painfully embarrassing you-don't-have-to-broadcast-the-fact-that-the cashier-looks-really-really-old fault).  They say the first thing that comes to their minds, without mincing any words; they lay it all out for you in no uncertain terms.   No masking.  No sugar coating.  No editing. No faking the funk!  They tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  If you really don't want to know--you probably shouldn't ask a kid.

Sadia is constantly surprising us with her colorful sayings.  I find that with every day, I am growing more and more interested, while at the same time fearful to hear what she'll say next. She does in fact say some of the darndest things.  I have posted a few of her candid moments here and here, but I didn't really feel like my anecdotal writing did these scenarios much justice.

Inspired by an old TV series called Kids Say the Darndest Things, I've decided to record these interactions to give you a glimpse into her insights, her bright young mind, and her innocent heart.  This is an introduction to (hopefully) many more posts, where I attempt to pry into Sadia's beliefs, experiences, and reactions to life.  I treasure these moments because they seem to represent things of little consequence to me, but are close and meaningful to her as she is learning more and more about this big world around her. 

I will affectionately tag these posts:  Sadia Says the Darndest Things.

On my mission one of my favorite videos was called "Out of the Mouths of Babes". Then I experienced the same thing with my kids. These are some of the best, truest and most eye opening things!
