|I looked back in the car and noticed she had her "Princess earrings " on.|
Anyone that knows Caroline, knows that she is all about being a GIRL! My four year old asks on a regular basis:
Q: When can I get my ears pierced? A: When you are twelve.
Q: My nails have only been painted once today. When can we do it again? A: Once per day.
Q: Can I wear a dress to preschool every single day? A: Of course.
Q: My Hello Kitty lipgloss is clear. When can I get RED lipgloss? A: Maybe when you are twelve.
Q: I've decided exactly how I would like my hair today. Can you follow these instructions I give you? A: Probably not...I'm all thumbs. But I'll certainly try.
So it is with that background information that I share the following anecdote:
When I picked Caroline up from preschool today I was wearing sunglasses. I wore them into the house and then took them off. She looked at me and GASPED!! She had a look of utter disgust and humiliation on her face.
"What's wrong," I ask?
She can barely form the words to say, "You, You, You.....FORGOT to put on your eye makeup today!!"
"I must have been in a hurry," I tell her.
She continued to give me wary side long glances until I finally agreed to go upstairs to apply the necessary creams and ointments to my unadorned eyes.
What a tragedy in her four year old life! I'm beginning to become a little worried about what just what kind of girl I'm in for in the years to come!
P.S. I've also decided that those little "Pageant Girls" you see....they aren't made. They're born!!!!
