Lessons in self-esteem

Avery:  (while pointing to a prominent stretch mark on my hip/thigh)  Mommy, Wha ooze dat??
Me:   Nothing, but thank you for reminding me not to cross my legs while wearing shorts. 
A:  Huh? 
M:  Nothing
A:  Wha ooze dat? 
M:  A sign that I'm a good mother
A:  Huh?   
M:  Nothing
A:   Stank? 
M:  No, that's not a snake!  
A:  Oh...  (long pause)     Worm???

If you need me I'll be throwing out every pair of shorts that I own...
