A Conversation with Alexa

When I picked up Lex from school, she handed a little daisy to me, “For you, mommy!”

I said, “Thank you! You’re always giving me flowers. You’re so thoughtful.”

She said, “Because I like you and I like giving you flowers.”

“Thank you,” I said again.

“Because I think you’re pretty,” she added.

“Thank you,” I said once more.

She continued, “Even though you have pimples, it doesn’t mean that you’re gross. I still like you.”

And I was speechless.
