Am I pretty or just striped?

Conversation at my house a couple mornings ago...

Peter: I wish I was as pretty as you Mommy.

Me: Aw, shucks. Thanks honey for calling me pretty. But you are a little boy and little boys are handsome, not pretty. And you are the most handsome little boy I know!

Peter: No I'm not.

Me: Yes you are. Why would you say you aren't?

Peter: Because I'm not wearing a striped shirt and you are. Striped shirts are prettier than plain shirts!

Geez. And I thought I was looking especially pretty that morning! Oh well. Maybe I should have spent some more time on my hair!

Peter is to cute. I am glad to know all I have to do is wear a striped shirt to be prettier than you.
I just wanted everyone to know that Beth is as nice as she seems on her blog.This morning I got an e-mail saying Beth has treated me to a pimping of my blog. She knows I am going through a rough time right now and as always she is thinking of me.That is the kind of person Beth is,she is always their for others.And she is always willing it help people.I give her a hard time on her blog when I leave a comment, but she knows I am just joking. But I want everyone to know that Beth is a very special and I am very privileged that she is my BFF.

Awwwww...I have to say, I am partial to striped shirts myself. I always thought my boys looked particularly handsome in striped shirts. Maybe it's time for a new such shirt for Peter ?!

Oh man. Kids are so cute.

I need to remember to wear more stripes then, if that's all it takes to be pretty. :)

Adam says I am pretty when I wear anything bright. If I wear black, he doesn't say a word. But, when I wear a bright color he says "mommy is pretty!" haha.

That is very cute. My son is barely 2 and I am coaching him to say "my mama is sooo pretty". I am shameless.

Well, were the stripes vertical or horizontal? That could be important, you know... ;)

That's to funny. Definetely take the compliments where you can get them.

How cute - just about the time you are all ready to get a big head - they just pop that big ol' balloon - don't they! Very cute conversation!

I love the way kids think. I'm going to look for a striped shirt, but it can't be horizontal strips!

My daughter has a thing for stripes as well.

Now my son? Not so much. He so hated the one I put on him for our Christmas-card photos that he wailed the entire time.

I'm off to put on a striped shirt!!

Lisa said...

That's really sweet. If only I knew it was so easy to be pretty.

Off to put on a striped shirt...this plain shirt doing nothing for me today :)
