G: Mommy, if you entered a beauty contest, you would win, for sure!
Me: Oh, I don't think so!
G: Oh, yes you would! (pause) But maybe you're a little bit too old...
Me: Too old?
G: I think you have to be between 20 and 30 years old.
Me: Actually, there are beauty contests for older women, you know.
G: Well, they wouldn't even let you participate if they saw you.
Me: Why not?!
G: Well, you are just *too* beautiful. They would turn you away at the door. All the other women would be afraid to compete against you.
Me: You know, honey, external beauty is really not the most important thing in life. I think it's more important to be a good person, to be friendly and kind to others...
G: Oh, I know that. I'm just trying to flatter you!
(This boy has been watching too many episodes of "Le Veline"!)
I think I'm busting a gut laughing!! ah kids do say the darndest things!
p.s. love the picture - you are both beautiful! I'm kind of against beauty queens these days (just think of the u.s. presidential race!)
What a kid! What a GRANDson!! We are still laughing . . . . . . . . . and missing.

Mouse - it's not easy teaching kids to look below the surface of things! But, thanks for the compliment anyway ;-)))
Nick - we miss you two too!
Ha!Little boys are so affectionate with their mummies! Girls just steal all their make up and high heels!
You're son will be a popular boy amongst girls if he keeps that up! :) Just hoppin' over from MBC!
Charlie - I always wanted a girl, but I'm starting to see the benefits of having boys! LOL!
Maricris - thanks for stopping by!
