Flattery Will Get You Everywhere


This little boy has me figured out

Whenever I wear a dress,

or a skirt,

or do my  hair,

or put on lipstick,

he now tells me...

"Mommy, you look boo-yee-ful." 

I love it.

I can't get enough of it.

I may have been wearing dresses a little more often lately.  Just to hear him say it. 

And I may ask him constantly "Hey Owen, how do I look?"

And I may actually say "Squee!" when he says it.

But come on!

Can you blame me???

Such a sweetie! And no, I don't blame you.

When I do that, my son gets suspicious and waits for the babysitter to come.

Kmama said...

I need to borrow him. Somehow, my boys missed learning this very important skill.

No, because I do the same thing with my girls! LOL! They immediately notice when I wear something new and they love it when I wear dresses.

I will take all the compliments I can get. Who does not love getting compliments?

When I put on a dress my kids cry because they know that I am going to leave.

Rebecca said...

Okay, maybe there is a reason I taught them how to talk!!!

Oh my goodness, is he ever sweet. Can I borrow him? My FIVE-YEAR-OLD asked me the other day if I was really going to wear that top with those pants. He told me it didn't look good at all.
It is great for the self-esteem!

Ah, I remember the days when my kids used to say that. Now they're too caught up in hot girls on tv to be complimentary to their frumpy mother.

Yours has such a sweet face!

Aw, sweetheart.

When Jessica got her hair cut recently, the stylist asked her how long she wanted. She just pointed at my hair, and my heart melted.

I hope she's not too disappointed when I get my desperately-needed trim!

Oh yes, my little man does the same thing. Stuff like, "Oh Mommy, your hair looks pretty". The kid has me in his back pocket. I'm a sucker. Welcome to the club.

I don't blame you one bit - I may even ask a couple times a day to hear that from Owen - what a cutie!!!

His eyes are enough; he doesn't need to say a word!
