While taking The Little Miss to the bathroom in her middle of the night trek, she says to me in her sleepy state, "I want to be beautiful."

Really? WTF? At 2 years, 8 months and 21 days, she thinking about wanting to be beautiful?

If she doesn't know that she is the most beautiful, precious little girl with an amazing spirit and the reason I live and breathe, then just shoot me.

I am sure she is beautiful. You should tell her this every day and reinforce it in so many different ways that she can't doubt it ever. She should be saying "I am beautiful" and "I am a princess" and things like that. Encourage that because clearly you believe it and it is true. Thats just my opinion. :)

How interesting. What do you suppose is her 2.8.21 defintion of "beautiful"?

MizFit said...

Im with cammy in that the Toddler says things OFTEN which freak me out :) but when I ask the ole "I know what beautiful means to me---what does it mean to you??" kind of question it more makes me laugh.

her response is NEVER the catastrophic event Im imagining.

Proverbs 23:21 for the drunkard and glutton impoverish themselves, and sleepiness is clothed in rags.

Proverbs 30:21 There are three things at which the earth trembles, four, indeed, which it cannot endure:
22 a slave become king, a brute gorged with food,

Luke 12:19 and I will say to my soul: My soul, you have plenty of good things laid by for many years to come; take things easy, eat, drink, have a good time."

I think Cammy and MizFit are right- I remember saying lots of stuff when I was little that I didn't really know what I meant by it. Or else I meant something totally different.

I think that she knows she's beautiful! Especially because you DO encourage her about that:)

I'm sure Miz is right. Your perception of what she means is probably way off course from what she is thinking. Strange things that kids say...

My son told me the other day that his little brother was fat. HELLO?! Where did you get that from.

I let him know I don't approve of that language!
