Great things about being blind. More interactions with kids

On saturday, I had a delightful interaction with a little boy.  It wasn't a long interaction but cute none the less and reminded me that I had been posting about conversations with kids about blindness.  I met this little boy and his brother and family.  My friend and I explained to the family that they couldn't pat Tulia when her harness was on because she was working.  I took her harness off so that they could pat her.  The mother was the most interested though.  but one of the boys said, "she has a cute little bum bum."  I was a bit shocked at first.  Did they mean me?  My friend?  Or the dog?  Tulia does have a cute little bum bum and her whole body wags when she is happy.  I was releived that he meant Tulia and not any of the people.  I still smile when I think of him saying it.
