In the eye of the beholder

This morning at the gym I witnessed the most beautiful display of love and admiration.

A mother and her 3 or 4 year old daughter were signing in at the front desk. The mother was perhaps in her mid to late 30s, a solid-set lady with dark curly hair pulled back in the all-too-familiar pony tail.

In the reception area of the gym there is a large poster advertising a popular work-out apparel brand, featuring a young, blonde, super toned model.

The little girl ran up to the poster and exclaimed, "Mummy! That's you!"

My heart melted on the spot.

The mother simply replied, "You are the best kid in the world".

Now if that's not the truest example of the phrase 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder', I don't know what is.

So, if you're feeling a little blah today just remember that your little one thinks you look hotter than Megan fox and Miranda Kerr combined:)

How sweet! Hudson said that I look like the Little Mermaid. Take that Miranda Kerr.
ps...I nominated you for a Stylish Blogger Award on my blog. Yes, this means I think you're incredibly stylish! Holla.
