Me: putting on my full blown Sunday makeup and styling my hair.
Daughter: "Mom, why don't you wear makeup every day?"
I finish the sentence in my own head, "Because wow, you look so much better today."
Out loud: "Because I think I am beautiful whether I wear makeup or not. I like myself just the way I am."
Me: "That is why I don't think you need to wear makeup until you are older. I think you are beautiful just the way you are."
Please dear daughter, like yourself just the way you are. You are magnificent.
