When my daughter was younger, I kept remarking on her beauty and other people did as well. She was always the fairest of them all (in my eyes anyway).
Often when she was growing up people would tell us that our daughter is beautiful. This always took me back. I wanted to answer, "no, she's smart!" Her scores were perfect, but we never shared them. I never knew how to answer this compliment- it's not like I have control over the genes my kid pulled out of the pool.
Maybe I'm sensitive since I have a prettier sister a year younger than me, so we she was the pretty one and I was the smart one, and we were fine with that. I want my daughter to be know as smart too!!
^^^^My dog is so ugly he is cute!
