Back-handed compliments, preschooler-style

So, I am getting ready to go out the other day, and I must say, I was feeling pretty good. Hair was cooperating, makeup was just right, and I was wearing one of my favorite outfits. You know the one...tight in the right places, loose where you need it to be. The one that accentuates your positives, and camouflages the negatives... And along came the middle kid. He was walking past the bathroom where I was just putting on the finishing touches. He stopped in his tracks and said, "Wow, mommy...you look so beautiful!"

So sweet.

So, I said, "Well, thank you, Hunter. That is so nice of you!"

To which he replied, "Yeah, mommy. You look so beautiful that nobody will recognize you!"

Uh, yeah. Thanks kid. I think...

I'll take a compliment anyway I can get it. LOL!
