Smooth Talkin’ Seven Year Old

I am not one to splurge, especially on myself.  But today, I did.  It wasn’t much of a splurge as far as splurges go, but it made me very happy and it was inexpensive.  It was a bracelet, four stretchy bands threaded with small turquoise pebbles of varying size and colors.  I cut the tag off it right there in the store and put it on my arm.

I was admiring my new purchase later in the day.

me:  This bracelet makes me feel pretty!  I feel like I now have a piece of “real” jewelry, even though I know it didn’t cost much but…”

carter:  Oh, momma!  You always have nice jewelry because you are a jewel!

Sigh.  Watch that boy, he is going to be a real smooth talker when he grows up – heck he already is.  And he sure melted this momma’s heart.
