I Love My Niece

My sister recently told me about a little bittersweet moment she had with her 3 year-old. She said her daughter's been obsessing over how gorgeous her mom is more than usual lately. 鈽猴笍 I guess while she was telling my sister she's beautiful and whatnot, my sister asked her "What about when I get all old and then I'm not beautiful anymore?" She said that actually made her daughter sad and that she even started cry! 馃ズ My sister said when she asked her why she was crying, her daughter shouted "I don't want you to not be beautiful anymore!" 馃槩 My sister said she tried to reassure her that she's sure she'll still be good-looking when she's old, citing her grandmother as an example (since our mom does look great for her age), said that help keep her daughter's mind at ease a little bit. My sister said she felt bad, saying she only asked that as a joke and wasn't expecting her to get so upset about it. 馃槹 Poor girl. But I'm sure she'll be back to swooning over her mom's looks in no time and still will be for a very long time. 馃グ

@Asmae They're well-behaved most of the time, they just have the unfortunate luck of having an Italian mom.

I've seen a home-made video clip where a father did this "oh where is she-there she is" game, and at some point (don't ask me how he did this) he suddenly appeared with his beard shaved off, and his daughter started to cry immediately. I guess getting used to changes is hard for kids.

Happy children don't really care about looks. All they really is a reflection of how you make them feel. And if that stays good you're golden. 馃グ馃鉂わ笍
