pretty make up

i’ve received quite a few compliments on my prettiness from children. random kids in the park, at the grocery store, or at church have pronounced me as pretty.

i almost always flush with joy at their shameless compliments but i got to thinking the other day…

am i really that pretty? or do i just look like a mom?

[this is pretty much a rhetorical question, unless you feel the need to tell me how gorgeous i really am. in that case, go right ahead]
