The harsh truth

My sister bought me some new, trendy (I gather) jeans for my birthday. I asked number-one-daughter Freja what she thought.

"They are nice jeans, Daddy, but they don't suit you," she said. She's not aware of the phrase mutton dressed as lamb, but if she had have been, I suspect that she would have used it.

Don't ask a child what they think unless you are prepared for the truth. They won't lie to save your feelings. ;-)
