My beautiful daughter

We just got back from the park. There was another family there with two kids playing on the toys. They mostly spoke Spanish to each other, but spoke to me as well in English a bit. They were very friendly and after a couple minutes of the kids playing the gentleman told me how beautiful Elle is.. "Your daughter is so beautiful. We (his wife and him...in Spanish) were just talking about how incredible looking she is." They had the slightest question in their voice, something about the statement.... at the word "daughter"... I understood that they questioned if she was mine. I responded, "Oh, thank you so much.... my husband is really good looking." and smiled. With out missing a beat, they looked at eachother and he let out a breath of understanding and said, "Ooooohhh... I see." about 3 seconds passed (quite a long time really...try counting it out) and he said, "must be good combination."  with a nod of his head. What a save! HA! =) Nice try... I know she doesn't look like me...and when I meet new people when with Michael I often just want to say... "I know, I know....but I have a GREAT personality!" =D

  1. Ha ha! I had a similar conversation once when my girls were younger - a friend ooh-ed and aahh-ed over our older daughter and said "oh my goodness, you are SUCH a beautiful girl!!" and then she looked over at our other daughter and said "and you, well (awkward pause), you look just like your mother!" and then laughed nervously. Gee, thanks! :) What makes it even funnier to me is that we adopted our first girl (the 'beautiful' one), so we can take absolutely no credit for her good looks. :)
