ALL MADE UP

Posted on: Tuesday

I usually feed and wash and diaper and clothe baby girl first thing in the morning, before even having a cup of coffee. And then we play, and then maybe I might have time to shower and do my hair (but usually I just wash my face and pull my hair up) before I get prettied up with make-up to start the day.   Biet has watched me getting ready in my antique vanity mirror since day one, so it shouldn't have surprised me when she began practicing the great toddler mastery of imitation.

A few weeks ago I turned around to find her lightly sweeping my make-up brush back and forth across her face.  And now my make-up bag is her all-time favorite toy.  She loves to take each piece out, examine it, taste it, put it in a pile, and then put it back.   Her little cosmetic ritual has definitely been an inconvenience once or twice {example 1: I'm running 15 minutes late for work yet can't seem to pry my mascara out of a screaming baby girl's hand} {example 2: I'm lucky enough to snag a seat on the packed subway car and decide to put on some lipstick before I get to the city. I reach in my purse only to find my little make-up bag full of nothing but rice puffs} {example 3: In the middle of work I run to the bathroom to sweep on some blush. The brush, feeling weirdly wet against my face, leaves a sticky mess of blush mixed with baby slobber and chunks of banana smeared across my cheek. not fun.}, but I still let her play.  I think I may have to sew her a play version one of these days.

  9. This made me laugh when I read it and then when I was straightening up later, I found an old make up brush that I don't use in my 20 month old's purse, hanging from her play stroller. It's almost scary how closely they are watching. Have a great day!!
