Beauty Secret

I was telling my little granddaughters that being beautiful is about more than makeup. I said when they are kind to each other, and show love to each other they are beautiful. Later I wanted them to tell their mothers about this important lesson. It had been totally forgotten by then. When I asked what makes a girl beautiful their answers were "Lipstick." and "Eyebrow pencil so you can see your eyebrow color."

One mom gave a hint. "Why is Oma beautiful, even though she doesn't have any make up on? Three-year-old J knowingly answered, "Because she's dressed modestly."

What a curious answer from such a small girl!

Marty, I will send your questions as soon as I have had some time to prepare them. Thanks!
