"You're beautiful too."

Kids say the darnedest things.  They also say the sweetest things and it's nearly impossible to not believe them because they are nothing if not sincere.  Always.

After a near nuclear meltdown over which dress she wanted to wear to dinner the other night and a serious dilemma over which TWO purses she was going to carry, Mattie looked darling.  A dress with butterflies, hair with barrettes, even a little "makeup" applied as mom put her's on ... She looked darling. I was sweating from all the baby dressing drama, but ready to go.  I snapped a little picture and bent down to tell her how beautiful she looked.  She came closer, put her arms around me, looked me in the eye and says, "But Momma, you look beautiful too." 

How did she get so sweet and so kind?
