Yesterday I was looking through my clothes and realized that I desperately needed to do some washing. So desperate in fact that I had no pants to wear…mind you, I’m not the clotheshorse that Jim is… he could very nearly wear something different every day of the year. So my choices came down to shorts or a skirt.
Those who know me know that I rarely wear skirts. Very rarely. But the weather was a bit too cold for shorts and Jim and Xander kept suggesting the skirt, so I gave in. I wore a skirt.
All day I had Xander and Beckett telling me that I was soooo beautiful, soooo lovely, sooooo pretty. All because of a skirt.
Eye of the beholder I suppose, but a nice ego boost.
So this morning as I reached for a pair of jeans I paused and picked out a long pale lavender skirt instead. When Xander saw me he said,
“Oh Mommy! You’re beautiful again today!”
How can I resist?
