Don't I Look Beautiful Like This, Mom?

Those were the words that Abbey asked me last night. She was fresh from the tub where the grime of the day had been washed away. Normally, I blow her hair dry after we wash it, but last night (after much begging on her part) I let her skip the hair drying and we let her hair dry naturally. She LOVES it when I let her do that. Her hair is stick-straight except for about 2 wavy pieces in the front. And she loves those waves. I mean loves 'em. That's what prompted her question last night...don't these waves in my hair make me look beautiful? And they absolutely did. I love the self-confidence that girl has, and I love that she's not afraid to ask questions like that all the while knowing the answer is YES, you're beautiful sweetie!

I love this post, Mer. Reminds me of my niece, Rachel, in her younger years.
