We were in the makeup section of the store looking for face paint.
"Mom, I want you to paint a bird on my cheek."
"Well it won't be as good as that dragon the lady did last week."
"I don't care!! You'll do great Mom, it doesn't have to be perfect. By the way, these ladies are liars."
She was pointing to an ad of two cover models placed strategically next to a line of lipsticks. Their faces smooth, beautiful and clear, their lips luscious, full and shiny with pretty pink gloss on them.
"What do you mean they are liars?"
"Well, I looked at my skin and it does NOT look like that. They are liars for making people think their skin does."
Wow. There are so many layers of truth to this I didn't know where to begin.
"I know what you mean, but they look like that on purpose to try to get us to buy the makeup. They are implying that if we buy what they are wearing, we might be able to look like that."
"It's still lying."
"Yeah , I think you are right..."
Oh how I still underestimate my kids sometimes.
The yogurt shop with the girl. Who am I kidding. It's not yogurt. It's ice cream masking as a health conscious alternative (even without all the lovely toppings). Lies, more lies!! I'm not fooled, I eat it, but I am not fooled.
Painting, glueing, collaging, more to show soon :)...
Wishing you a healthy weekend friends...
ps. Thanks for all the well wishes for my family. Boy and hubs are on the upswing!!
