children keep you humble

I overheard a conversation between a mom and her daughter this afternoon while they looked through a magazine. So, as to not implicate the innocent, I'll call them "Mom" and "Abbi".

"Abbi": Mommy, your hair would look beautiful like that girl's in the picture.
"Mom": [taking a hint] You don't like my hair much, do you?
"Abbi": No! It's yucky! I don't really like this part and the top is all crazy!

In "Abbi's" mom's defense, she let her hair air dry after her shower this morning. And, in "Abbi's" defense, she quickly added, "But, you're still my favorite mommy!"
