Mommy, You Look Beautiful

For Easter I went dress shopping and came home with 3 new dresses. Isn't that how it always happens!!  One I bought for Easter, one was a winter-type sweater dress that was on clearance, and the third was just because I felt like it!  I wore the Easter dress for Easter and the sweater dress when the weather was cooler (you know, last week?), but I hadn't worn the third one yet.

Since the weather is finally warm enough, I chose to wear the last of the new dresses to work yesterday. I don't have a picture of me in the dress, but this is it, if you are wondering:
Just for the record, I was wearing turquoise wedges with this dress
While I was in the bathroom putting on my makeup, Henry asked me to help him with his shirt.  I did a bit of a double take when I saw him because of the outfit he had chosen.  He was wearing plaid madras shorts and a blue and red plaid cowboy shirt.
He is neither funny looking nor dressed strangely by his mother
I said, "Ummm...Henry, usually when people go for a pattern in one place they opt for solids elsewhere."

He replied, "Huh?"

Then I said, "That's not an outfit I would have chosen, but if it makes you happy; then you go for it, Bubba!"

He grinned widely and ran off.  He met up with Frances in the hallway and she gasped and said..."Henry!! You look so handsome!"

As we all got our stuff together and started to head for the door, Francs looked at me and said, "Mommy, you look beautiful today."

And I wasn't quite sure if that was a compliment...


  1. Haha I love Henry's outfit!!! John Paul also loves to mix patterns, I get such a kick out of the pairings he makes when he gets dressed :)

  2. Awwwwww :) That's so sweet! I definitely think it's a compliment :)

  3. Hahahaha Henry! As long as he loved it, that's all that matters! I LOVE the pink dress on you!

  4. Hahahahaha. Total compliment. I'd just accept it!!
    Love the new dresses!! Pretty!! --Lisa

  5. What they all said! Besides, you always look terrific. :-)

    1. Especially with my new bangs, right, Melissa!? :)

  6. This made me literally laugh out loud. Kids are so funny! I'm sure you really did look beautiful though. :)

  7. Funny! I love when kids dress themselves! And he's right -- you do look beautiful!
