On a daily basis, I tell my Keikster how much I love her and ask her, why is she so darn cute? I think after all this time, this cuteness business runs right over her head. I mean, she knows it, I say it all the time to her. But what does it really mean? Lately, I've been telling Keira that she's beautiful because it radiates from the inside of her. Her kindness, her spontaneity, her happiness radiates all the way to the outside and it shows on her face. This, I keep telling her, is the real reason why I think she's beautiful.
She doesn't fully understand it yet. She takes it quite literally. Beauty inside? What's inside? Is there yucky stuff in me? It shows on my face? Really?
Kids really do say the darndest things.
But most times, they just laugh in your face and run away.
