Emma: So uh, mom? I was just wondering … why don’t you wear dresses more?
Me: Oh, I don’t know. I’m just more comfortable in jeans or shorts. I don’t think I wore a lot of dresses when I was your age either.
Emma: Oh. Well, like, I hope you weren’t going to say it’s because you don’t feel pretty in them. Because you really are pretty when you wear dresses to work. You look beautiful.
Me: Aw! Thanks, Boo!
Emma: You are always beautiful but just, like, a little bit more beautiful in dresses.
And that was my favorite thing I got for Mother’s Day.
