Vintage Father-Daughter Moment

After I inappropriately asked a friend of a friend whether her new Little Sister mentee was as cute as my dog, she very smartly responded by relating a darling childhood story wherein she asks her father whether or not she's 'pretty like the mountains.'

"No, Jane," he said, "You're pretty in a different way."

(Nearly melted my cold, black heart.)

That little anecdote made me smile.
I've been in trouble before for comparing babies to doggies (I love doggies). In no way do I think this is an insult to babies ... others do not concur.

Aw--that *is* sweet.

But sorry--dogs will always be cuter. Fact.

(And I am so glad I got to see those pics of Sassy Mae again. I really want to kiss her!)
