Flattery is the sincerest imitation...

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Here's a phrase that historically comes from a book entitled, "Lacon," by Coined by Charles Caleb Colton in 1820.

I am quite certain he had never met my daughters, for when I looked upon my third and beheld the following, I felt indignantly flattered:

Where could my child have learned such mannerisms? How could this be? My child, whom I am raising to be a perfect angel, where could she have run across this gesture?

Must have been her mother, I'll bet she's flattered.

Lucky for us, no one saw this sincere imitation.

What Tyler doesn't hear is that they all sound exactly like me, especially when they are playing barbies or dolls.

I am not always so flattered. Or at least I don't sound so flattering heard from a small child's voice.

I don't sound very flattering when being mimicked by the boys either!
