On Sonya's first day back to school last week, I was feeling a bit relaxed in the morning. She was starting to become a little crazy toward the end of the summer and needed to get back to her routine. Honestly, I was happy to only have the two younger girls to take care of for a few hours. Plus, with Sonya gone there was less fighting. So, I was feeling pretty generous when Lana came to me with the bag of play makeup and asked if they could put it on.
Now, my first thought when the girls ask this is always, "Oh God! Not the makeup!" But then I said-"Eh-why the hell not?" We weren't going anywhere for a while, so I let them have at it. After putting it on, Lana showed me her handiwork and I have to say, I think she may have inherited my mother-in-law's makeup gene. My mother-in-law, Julia, is rarely without her "face" on. Once she even put on lipstick to go for a walk around my block. In Burbank. However, she does an impeccable job with her makeup and always looks flawless. Perhaps when she was four if she would have played with makeup, this is how it would have turned out.
Subtle, yet still noticeable. Not bad, huh? Not to mention she colored in the lines, so to speak.
Georgia on the other hand....Well, Georgia looked like I used to in college after a night of heavy drinking. You know what I mean- the times when you pass out before you have a chance to wash off all your party makeup? Yeah, I think my mother-in-law's makeup gene may have skipped her.
