This cute little six-year old said to me, "Mom, I think some people in the world might think you look ugly," and give me this sweet smile.
I was smiling back at him as he said this, I tried to keep my facial expression unchanged as I brilliantly said, "Oh."
As an afterthought to entertain myself further, I asked, "Why?"
He replied, "I don't know. It seems like nobody thinks they look ugly."
On the other hand, my 16 year-old son paid me the nicest compliment today, when I returned home after running errands for a couple of hours. He said, "It seems like things go better when you're here, even if you're not in the room."
I asked him, "Like what?"
And he said, "It just seems like people are happier."
