The boys and I were watching TV. I can’t remember exactly what we were watching so it was probably a ridiculous cartoon or maybe it was MacGyver or maybe it was some sort of cooking show, that’s not the important bit. The important bit was we were all watching and having little side conversations as we went along, you know.
So on comes a commercial and it has Ashley Graham* in it. I think she is just really pretty and tend to say things like that out loud and this is what happened.
Me: “She’s just so pretty”.
Me: “The lady on the commercial. Her name is Ashley and I think she is just so pretty.”
Maks: “You are so weird, mommy.”
Me: “Why? I can think people are pretty.”
Maks: “I know that! But you never always miss the point.”
Me: “What do you mean?”
Maks: “You’re really pretty too but you never say you’re really pretty. You always say other people are pretty but you are just as pretty as that lady on TV.”
Mats: “Yeah mommy, you are pretty like that lady. You just never say so.”
And as quickly as it started, the conversation ended and they moved on to using paperclips to save the world or something equally as random but they totally changed my night.
I may not always believe I am pretty but I know for sure that I have the most awesome boys.
*if you don’t know who she is, google her.
