Kids just say it like it is. There's no second guessing, no filter, no concern for the impact their words might have on whoever is on the receiving end. They drop truth bombs all day long with total ease.

Elizabeth Gilbert coined that lifestyle as 'the way of the hummingbird' – people who flit from one idea to the next, cross–pollinating the world.
