Lately I have been talking about the effect that Emma has had on Larissa by calling her ugly all the time. I just had to share that today we went out to lunch at a fast food joint where an elderly gentleman told Larissa that she was pretty.
She doesn't get told that often by strangers. Her face lit up when she was telling me about what he said to her. It was a joy to see.
It is amazing what an impact one nice comment, from one stranger, can have on a child.
