Kids Will Keep You Humble

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."

Oh my goodness! That is terrible and when he is older, he'll probably claim he never said any such thing! I am absolutely positive that NOBODY in the world thinks you are ugly. And I'm sure he agrees. What a funny boy!

Oh, I wouldn't say NOBODDY, different strokes for different folks and all that good stuff. But it's o.k. I'm not suffering from low self-esteem. I was just surprised and entertained by his brutal honesty. He's a sweetheart, really. most of the time. :)
