"Mommy, my nose is flat"

Smooshed nose blog  

Gwen is at an age where she's noticing everything about herself (and everyone else) that is different.  Recently, she was looking in the mirror and pressed on her nose and  suddenly exclaimed "Mommy, my nose is flat!".  At first, I wasn't really sure how to respond.  Did she think "flat" was bad?  Like being flat broke or having a flat tire, or drinking a boring old flat soda?   Was this what she meant?  Was she feeling self-conscious about her appearance and did she secretly wish her nose was like mine (pointy and crooked)?  Or was she just proud of herself for noticing a small detail about herself that made her nose different from the nose she's spent most of her life looking at (mine)?      

Within seconds, I knew the answer.  This is my super observant Gwenny and she doesn't have a bashful or self conscious bone in her beautiful little body.   I just smiled and squeezed her and said "Baby, your nose is beautiful!"  Then I pressed our two very different shaped noses together and kissed her loudly and she threw back her head and laughed!  Yep, that's my girl.
