So.. we had a sick day here at this residence. My oldest was/has been under the weather for a few days. Within minutes of waking up this morning I could just tell she was headed for a "bad" day. So I pulled the plug on work and school for us.. and we just spent the day together.
When I tell you what she told me here as I tucked her in bed tonight .. you would just have to believe me.. b/c this is the most tender child I have ever met.
She said.. "Mommy, you are such a blessing to me." I kid you not. Out of the mouth of a 6 year old.
I watched some of the TODAY show this morning. They featured this You Tube video.. and I thought it was interesting enough to post.
I know what is out "there" about the definition of beauty. I do not know how I escaped some of the peer pressure out there.. maybe b/c my parents (read mom) limited the television I watched.. but even 1 -1.5 decades later.. the pressure for girls is that much more intense.
Oprah has this "link" discussion.. I do not know where it is.. somewhere on the site.. it lists upcoming shows or possible shows.. and one of them is entitled:
"Do beautiful women have it easier?"
Loaded Question. Any thoughts?
