I don't buy Summer make-up. I don't let her wear make-up in general. There are two reasons for this, 1.) Matthew always seems to find it, and makes a huge mess with it on himself and his surroundings. 2.) I want her to be a kid as long as possible. Don't get me wrong, we play make-up at times, I just want to try and keep her focus elsewhere. I mean really, she's 5! When I was 5 I think all I cared about were the Smurfs or something...
Her solution, sticker make-up. No mess, no fuss! Any one want to buy some? It's not even that expensive, and you can sleep in it too! Who knows, maybe it even has anti-aging qualities to it!Any takers? No, hmmm. I wonder why...
PS-yes, there was a wad of stickers in her bed this morning, that may pose a potential problem.

A Lesson on Compassion and Mercy

Tonight as I was putting T Jay and Summer to bed, they both wanted to fall asleep in my bed. I tucked them in with a kiss and a firm warning that if there was any goofing off they would be right back in their own beds. As I was heading up stairs for the baby's pj's, I hear them both laughing, talking and rolling around on the bed. I promptly sent them both back to their beds as promised. T Jay was feeling very unjustly dealt with and begged for a second chance. I told him I was sorry, but he knew what would happen if he goofed off and left him with another kiss. About two minutes later he comes downstairs and tells me he has something he wants to tell me.
"Mom, I learned a lesson from a Veggie Tales about compassion and mercy. You are supposed to give people a second chance, even if they don't deserve it, because that's what God wants us to do. So I think I should get a second chance to sleep in your bed."
