Umm, yeah, not exactly what I was going for there

So I read this story the other day and the last line caused me to burst out in unexpected tears.  I decided to try his words with Leah Claire.  I'd just given her a bath and as I helped her get her jammies on I was telling her how smart and kind and precious she is to me.  I stopped, looked deep into her baby blues and asked her, "Where are you the most beautiful?"

She wrinkled her nose, considering the question for a few seconds.  Then she flipped over on the bed and pointed to her behind, saying "I think here.  Because I have have a very cute butt."

Umm, yeah.  Not exactly what I was going for there.  I guess deep, introspective questions are beyond the grasp of a three year old.
