Everywhere I go with my children people are surprised and sometimes even shocked to learn that the three beautiful and rambunctious boys with me are indeed my sons. I often hear comments like "wow you've got your hands full" or "are you going to try for a girl" or "they are so cute". Today in fact I heard all three of these. While reflecting on the comments I asked the boys why they thought people always seemed to be surprised that they were my sons. Tucker thoughtfully and sweetly replied "well maybe because you're short and you sorta look like a teenager, only a lot prettier". I kissed him on the head and smiled and reminded myself that it is none of my business what other people think of me or why. But I do so love these boys of mine and I am short and I do love myself much more now that when I was a teenager.
