Mirror Mirror on the wall....Who's the prettiest of them all?

"My mommy's the prettiest girl in the world"
"Well, my mommy's prettier than even a princess!"
"My mommy's prettier than all the princesses in the whole wide world"

Remember those days?
The days when fathers were heroes and mothers were goddesses?
Doesn't seem like all that long ago.

And I know that reality sets in as toddlers turn into teenagers.
And we're not quite as high on that pedestal as we once were.


You're reasonably sure you're not,
the ugliest creature on our little blue planet,
Third from the sun

Then your teenager says to you....
"Mom, don't you wish you were as pretty as Demi Lovato?"

That's the nudge that knocks you right off of any precarious hold
you still had on the aforementioned pedestal!!

demi lovato


  1. Yeah, I do. And thank you for mentioning that, my dear!! Gotta love kids!

  2. LOL!!! I'm still enjoying being on the pedestal. i can see though how that's likely to change soon.

  3. Ha who of the two rascalls said this, let me guess??? T. My kids say I have a fluffy tummy and wubbly ass.....argghhh. Michel said, well honey your there mom not there lover....

    Makes some sense.
