Life according to Jack

Jack was asking about my sunless tanner.  When I explained it was to darken my skin, he said: "Why? Don't you like your skin light?"

"Um, I don't know.  I guess I just like a change sometimes."

Jack: "Y'know, everyone is perfect just the way they are.  Even if they don't think they're perfect, they still are."

I can't believe how many life-truths I learn from my 6-year-old.

In other (unrelated) news about skin tone, my 2-year-old asked (without segue or context): "Why can't our doctor be a Sudanese person?"
