We are so very beautiful to them, no matter if we have make-up on, are overweight, or are wearing old pajamas with holes in them.
They say the sweetest things about how we look that are highly exaggerated. Write them down! I keep a small book in the kitchen of all the funny and sweet things my son has said over the years, and funny events, comics, etc. (I began with scraps of paper I threw in a box.) How we giggle when we go through it!
He just told me I didn't look any different with make-up on, so why do I wear it? "It's the same old, adorable, beautiful face!" Ha, ha!
When I saw this boy's pin-up, I realized that is truly how our children see us - we are the most beautiful gal in the room.
