I really need to buy new make-up this weekend. I was thinking about that this morning and was reminded of a conversation I had with Baby Boy when he was three years old.
ME: Go get your shoes and I’ll help you finish getting dressed. We need to leave for Tumble Bears.
HIM: Um, Mom? (pause) Are you going to put on any make-up?
ME: Do you think I need to put on make-up?
HIM: (longer pause) Well, I just want you to look pretty.
ME: Do I not look pretty now?
HIM: Not yet.
I guess for my children’s sake, I’m going to get ready for the day and go look for new beauty products! We’ve talked about it before, but do you have any more recommendations for this mom who doesn’t need to embarrass her kids?
