Inner beauty

Ethan 承蒙親朋好友錯愛
雖然長得乾瘦黝黑、 一顆門牙缺了好幾個月 & 常常掛著一副牛頭馬面
仍然不時會被人誇獎長得好
我們是奪~~~麼有教養的家庭啊! (huh?)
時常私底下模擬 "被人誇獎時應如何回應"
以免小孩得到讚美時擺著一張臭臉
前天剛被誇完
小人反應尚可
很靦腆地、避免眼神直接接觸地說了聲謝謝
回家的路上我們母子又在車上演練了起來
這次 Ethan 比平常多話一點

"Mommy, how did you feel when you're a kid and other people complimented you?"

你媽我小時候是孤芳自賞的類邊緣兒
大概到小學一年級以後就沒得到過太多讚美了

"What kind of compliment?"

"Like if people said that you're beautiful...?"

別的也還算了
誇我長得好的還真是沒有

"Unfortunately not many people think I'm beautiful..."

"REALLY?????"


好感動!
Ethan 語氣裡的驚訝聽起來非常真心~~~

"Yes, really. Why? Do you think Mommy's beautiful?"

自戀的人從不錯過任何 solicit positive feedback 的機會
便是跟自己兒子對話都不放過

"Of course you're beautiful! Why didn't people think that you're beautiful when you're little?"

"I'm not sure... maybe because I wasn't beautiful then. Maybe I'm more beautiful now."
(得意) (搖晃)

"How is that possible? How can you be OLD now yet more beautiful?" (利刃) (見血封喉)

"Of course old people can be beautiful! Look, mommy is one good example in real life!"

"Then what did you do to grow more beautiful as you're older?"


啊!
孩指!
那是因為你媽的內心愈來愈美麗!
媽媽那善良的內債美日積月累從內而外一點點地散發出來
因此外表就慢慢慢慢地變美了
這個道理現在你還小可能不懂
但將來總有一天你會懂的~~~ (沉醉) (在腦海中迅速翻譯成英文 ing)

"AH! I know why! Mommy, people didn't think you're beautiful at that time because you didn't have any make-up but now you do!" (靠!!!!!!!! 小孩子沒事不要這麼假會!!!!!!!!)

這還沒完
對方辯友發現自己的邏輯直攻敵人要害
於是直接跳進結辯
結辯還出新論點 --

"That's right; because when you're little make-up hasn't been invented yet. That's why you can't buy make-up anywhere."

亂講啦!
你媽沒那麼老啦!
蜜斯佛佗化妝品清光緒 30 年就被發明出來了好不好!!!!!!!!!!!!

笑死了!
你就是越来越美丽!原来是inner beauty, 这个功夫不好练啊。

Gigi said...

儿子帅,妈妈很阳光。

那么你是如何教育Ethan对待Compliments?

Shopatriot said...

其實沒怎麼教
反正用上的機會也不多啦... :)
只是提醒他要記得微笑、make eye contact 然後說謝謝

太好笑了,你们beautiful母子俩!

女孩子被夸奖以后羞涩一笑没有eye contact也使得吗?
让她说thank you with eye contact,真的很不容易:(

blog补课中。

你媳妇现在被她哥影响的,也非常不喜欢attention,正面负面的都包括。

有时候夸她漂亮,居然说,“不好看,一点都不好看。”
