My son, Middle Child Syndrome, as he will lovingly be called had some very interesting things to to me yesterday about his "beautiful mom". He's my angel. Always telling me how beautiful I am and how I'm the best mom in the world. I always get a boost of confidence from MCS because to him, the sun revolves around me. Absolutley great for the self-esteem.
So we're talking about how he thinks I'm the most beautiful and how no one is more beautiful than me (Yeah I'm still smiling). So I tell him that he's going to have all the girls if he keeps being so sweet and telling girls stuff like they. I tell him girls love to hear guys say those things. (Okay, yes he's only going to the 1st grade, but I have to get him ready early).
So he says that he couldn't tell other girls that.
I say, "Why, MCS?"
He say, "They (meaning other girls) might get mad if they hear me say you're the most beautiful."
I say, "You think they might get jealous?'
He says, "Yeah, and if I tell another girl that they're beautiful too then they might smack me."
I laugh and ask, "What do you mean?"
"Well," he says they'll get sooo mad at me and one will smack me on this side like this," and he demonstrates a smack to one cheek, " and one will smack me on this side!" And he demonstrates a snack to the other side. "And that wouldn't be good!"
