My New Tagline?

This morning I woke up and sat up in my bed. My daughter was in my room, standing in front of the bathroom mirror, combing her hair. I saw her face in the mirror and said “Good morning!”
“Mommy, you look SO pretty!” She said.
That sweet compliment from my daughter made me feel so good.
“Really?” I said.
“Yes!” She responded.
What a nice thing to hear first thing in the morning. I definitely do not feel pretty when I wake up with my puffy face and my messy hair.
She wasn’t finished with her compliment.
“You look prettier than a rat. Because you know how rats look kind of scary and evil? You definitely look prettier than a rat.”
She wasn’t trying to be funny. She wasn’t trying to be mean. She was simply stating a fact. I am prettier than an evil, scary rat.
If only every day could begin with such an awesome compliment.

    I’m happy that you’re writing so often again! And your daughter always makes me smile.
    Not matter which tagline you use, I always think of “Winners Do the Math.”

    I work with a lot of rats. They are extremely sweet and surprisingly cute. I would say that’s a pretty strong compliment!
