Malayna and I went to the bookstore yesterday, and when we were leaving the bathroom there we passed a big mirror. She watched herself walk by and said {with a big smile on her face}, "Look at my pretty self."

How cute is that? Don't you wish you had that kind of confidence again? After thinking about how stinkin' cute that comment was, the next thought that came to mind was, "How much longer will she feel that way about herself?" Honestly, how many of the women you know are completely happy with the way they look?

Here's an interesting article about young girls and body image.

That is utterly precious! Owen calls himself "funny" and "adorable" and while I realize that maintaining a positive self image is probably tougher for girls, I wonder too how long his confidence and fearlessness will last.

Ha! Instead of picking apart my flaws when I look in the mirror, I'm going to start saying this instead.
