me: "u got it. u are so beautiful. what makes you so beautiful?"
j: "hmmmm. well, i can do yoga. see? oh, take a picture of this too."
me: "so what makes you so beautiful?"
j: "my brown skin. it's so, well, brown and stuff. it's silky and it's kinda like chocolate. you like chocolate, mommy."
me: "yes, i do like chocolate. and YOU are what makes you so beautiful, baby girl."
to quote my fav nicole c. mullen...
and that girl can sing, ya'all!!!
"Baby girl, don't you know your wealth?
you're a diamond hiding on a shelf!!
baby girl, dont you know who you are?
God has made you a shining star!
a little light is brighter than the dark
