Thanks for telling our daughter about a girl who you used to know with jagged teeth who everyone made fun of, but who turned out to be the most beautiful girl in school when she grew up and then everyone felt bad about teasing her. And that you were the only one who never teased her, which is why the new supermodel decided to date you above anyone else. I'm curious though, who the hell are you talking about?
Thanks for telling her that you and I were the most beautiful people at college and the most popular and that everyone adored us. And that since she is FROM us, that automatically makes her amazing.
Thanks for telling her that boys tease because they really like you and girls tease because they are jealous.
And thanks for also reminding me to tell her about how a popular boy in 6th grade told me that I was "so ugly." And how when he asked me out in 10th grade because he said I was the most beautiful girl in school, I told him too bad so sad.
And even though I shook my head at what you said, thanks for reminding me that you will say whatever it takes to make her feel good about herself and to forget about the children that called her mean horrible no good names. Thank you for loving our daughter enough to exaggerate--just a bit;)
