We start 'em young

I am busy loading the dishwasher. The kids are getting ready for bed with dad to help. My older one comes and tells me that the younger brat has raided the makeup box. I hurry upstairs. The sight that greets me, do I laugh or yell? I give up to laughter. She seems to have a fair idea how to do it. Mascara used to cover half her forehead, a nice bindi to top it. Lipstick on her lips, and just to make sure she used enough, some on her nose as well. Clips in her hair. Not much on the white carpet. And then, "I am a big girl, I can put clips in my 'air !" Oh, Well! At least it made for a good memory!

'Laugh or yell' situations are a little too much with me too these days! Whenever I am about to yell at my daughter she now says, 'siri, Amma!'!!

hehe, and mine watches me intently as I put on the minimal war paint I allow myself, and just her pursed lips out, and with a little finger says 'unh, unh', vicously jabbing herself. An order to paint her too! Babies! :-))
