Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

This isn’t really Church related, but I couldn’t resist sharing it. My 4-year-old son is in Jr Kindergarten and there is currently a female student teacher working with his regular teacher. One of the YSA at Church is going to the local university to become a teacher, and we tease my 6-year-old son that she is his girlfriend (he really likes her). Anyway, my 4-year-old son and I were in the car alone the other day going to get something, and I was asking him about school and his student teacher. He spoke positively about her, and I asked if she was pretty (thinking I would tease him about a “girlfriend”, too), and he said, “No, she doesn’t wear lipstick”. I laughed out loud and asked him if a girl could only be pretty if she wore lipstick. He avoided that question, but did say that girls only wear lipstick to Church. I didn’t pursue it further, but it certainly made me wonder… do all females wear lipstick to Church? Do all the females in our ward wear lipstick? If so, does he think they are all pretty? Perhaps he is just thinking of his Mommy. My wife hardly ever wears make-up, but she does put some on for Church on Sunday. I guess since Mommy wears lipstick on Sunday, that’s what makes a girl pretty. Funny stuff!
