A Matter of Perspective
Tonight the older girls and I tried a restaurant we'd never tried before. Candlelit and comfortable, it was a pleasant dining experience, and they enjoyed practicing their grown up manners.
Grace made the rather odd--though true--observation that the entire waitstaff was male; not a woman in the bunch. As dinner progressed, judging from the flirting going on, the attractive male waiters were most likely much more interested in each other than any woman. Cindy Crawford could have walked in and I'm not sure they would have noticed.
Near the end of dinner Mia said, "Mom, do you know why every guy in here is being so nice to you and bringing us food all the time?"
"Uh, because we're paying them lots of money?"
"No! Because you are so beautiful. You're like, the prettiest lady here."
Someday her rose-colored mommy-glasses will come off, but until then, I'll just soak it in.
