A few days ago Samantha asked me why ladies wear bras. I gave her a few reasons. She accepted that and went on.
Today, we had this conversation:
Her "Mom, do some ladies not wear bras?"
Me (hesitating with wonder at where this is going) "Ya, sometimes, why do you ask?"
Her "Well, yesterday when we were at lunch with daddy, I saw this lady, and she DID NOT have a bra on!" "I could tell"
Me "Ya, I remember her. She was showing lots of skin hu. She wasn't being very modest."
Her "Ya, I don't think she has very much money" (she equates wealth with affording modest clothing...kinda makes sense I guess, it involves more fabric so it must cost more, right?)
Me "Well, honey, your gonna notice that some people just choose to dress that way. Some people like to show lots of skin. It doesn't have to do with how much money they have."
Her "Hu...well, when I am a lady, I am ALWAYS going to wear a bra!"
She's so funny. I love the way she thinks about things. She likes to ponder stuff and figure out how it applies to her. BTW, did ya notice those big ol brown eyes up there? LOVE them.
