Ego check

As we pull into the driveway of Hayden's school, one of the other mothers (who without fail looks like she's walked from the pages of a fashion magazine at 7am every morning) walks down the lane to her car.

Hayden: Joshua's mummy is beautiful!

Inside Lucy: strange pang of jealousy

Lucy: Yes, she is. Do you think your mummy is beautiful? (I bait him, smiling back at him hopefully.)

Hayden looks at me pensively for a moment, truly considering my question.

Hayden: No.

Thanks for the chuckle. Children are way too honest with their thoughts. But your mummy thinks your'e beautiful!
