I miss amm telling me that I am her beautiful girl.

But this morning Arrine pointed to a mark on my arm and said, “Mommy, what’s that?” And I replied, “It’s a beauty mark.” To which Arrine replied, “Ohhh!! You have lots of beauty marks!” As she ran her cute little finger up and down the full length of my arm, holding onto my wrist with her other hand.

I always tell Arrine that she is “my beautiful girl”. And I think if I am patient, she will one day tell me that she thinks I am beautiful too.
