The Space Between

The other day, I was talking to Olivia and she said "mama did you know I have a gap in my teeth?" and as I was looking at her when she asked me this question, she was frowning.....I said, "well yes" and she said "why didn't you tell me?"....I wasn't really sure how to respond to her question so I just said "why do you ask?" and she said that a girl at daycare told her she had a gap in her teeth and it made her feel bad......even at the age of 3 they can feel insecure about their appearance....we then proceeded to have a long conversation about all the wonderful things about her (inside and out) and she forgot about that gap...
