healthy self-esteem

Saw the sweetest little 3-year-old yesterday. I haven't seen him since he was a newborn baby.

I was talking to his mom, and finally couldn't help myself - I leaned down to the little guy, and said, "You are ADORABLE. You are so cute, I just don't know how you can stand it."

He gazed back at me, his face unreadable.

Then he turned to his mom, and said in a tiny voice, "Mommy?"

"Yes," she said.

"I am ADORABLE!"
