You can always rely on your toddler to keep it real and tell you exactly how it is. Recently, Emily has been fascinated by watching me put on make-up. This is a fascination that hasn’t in the least been dampened by the fact she once bit off a chunk of lipstick and spat it out with a grimace.
The other day, I finished up with the final touches of mascara, turned to her and said, ‘what do you think?’. Emily, in all her 17 month-old glory and with a limited vocabulary of just a few words, glanced at me for a few seconds before saying, ‘more’.
Looks like the under-eye bags and crows-feet have not escaped her notice. Tough love, kid. Tough love.
