The girls are supposed to wear "stage" make-up for their upcoming dance recital. Honestly, I'm not exactly thrilled at having to slap make-up on my 5 year old children. They're practically babies. I've told myself to get over it because there's nothing I can do about it but make a scene. I keep repeating what another mom said. The stage lights will wash out their faces.
I thought the girls would be excited to learn that they will be wearing some make-up (bright pink lipstick, blush and fill in the eyebrows some). Hmmmmm, not so much. Emily was a bit upset at first. Say what?
A few days later, Emily seemed to have changed her mind about the make-up and started asking me when I was going to put pencil in her eye. "No, sweetie. You don't put pencil in your eye. It's a special make-up pencil and you put it on your eyebrows." I was actually a little concerned that she may experiment with a lead pencil so I pulled out my make-up bag.
I don't have bright pink lipstick or pink blush and it turns out my pencil is too dark. I laugh every time I look at their eyebrows.
I can kind of see what they will look like as adults.
