People are always gushing about how gorgeous both of my children are and, more often than not, I tend gush back.
“Oh my goodness, I know! Aren’t they?!” I say.
It only recently occurred to me how shockingly immodest this must sound. And it would be had I thought for a second that Scout and Lou’s beautiful smiles, bright eyes, and disarming natures had anything to do with me…
Sure, they have some of my features, but they also picked up Mr.D’s bone structure, build, intelligence, curiosity, and kindness . (All the wild, crazy, and uncontrollable comes from me.) ‘Tis the gamble of DNA, I say. I take no more credit for my children’s looks than I would those of any celebrity walking the red carpet.
If someone were to say to me, “Don’t Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston look stunning?”, I would most likely also respond with “Oh my goodness, I know! Aren’t they?!”
I guess what I’m trying to say is that my children are who they are and I think that’s the most stunning thing about them.
In any case, I finally learned to be a lady and just say, “Thank you” and nothing more.
Here’s a closer look of beautiful baby girl. I look halfway decent too… for once.
…and because Scout looked so very cute for Easter/his 4th Birthday as well, here’s another picture of him blowing out the candles.
