Out of the mouths of babes...

My eldest (7 year old) daughter called to me excitedly when she was looking at the newspaper. "Mommy, Mommy, come quick you're in the paper". Intrigued I rushed right over to see what she was talking about. There was little chance a picture of me was in the newspaper. She pointed to an add for a cosmetic surgeon advertising a new mini lower face lift procedure and gestured to a series of before and after pictures. "Where Honey?" I asked. She pointed. "There, that one". I could see the pair of pictures she was referring to. I had to ask, I just had to. I knew better but I couldn't help myself. I'd left myself wide open. It really was my own fault. "Which one?" I asked. She of course proceeded to point to the 'before' face lift picture (taken in the worst possible light, without any makeup and a sour expression). "It looks just like you."
