I Hate My Face

My daughter is a source of comedy. I know it is usually not on purpose, but it is what it is. She was telling me how she "hates her face" because she is a little put off with the whole teenage acne thing. I could not stop laughing, because I think almost everybody that is that age hates their skin. But of course I couldn't tell that to her.... she was too busy hating her face. I can't help but find a small bit of humor in her problem. I mean once you older and you understand.... or at least think you understand life, you realize how silly such a statement is really.

Two Words

Last night, just before bed my teenager and the songbird, Who just turned 4 yesterday get into a conversation. It only involves two words. They keep telling the two words in each others ear... like it was a secret. What were those two words?

"Naked Belly"

You got me on what that means. But they were saying it, and laughing, must be a female thing.

Hey um... You Got Lipstick (crayon) All Over Your Face

I would have got a picture, it would have brought my point home that is for sure, but to protect the guilty, the songbird, I didn't. She drew around and around and around her lips with a crayon, I didn't even think crayon would stick to your skin, but clearly I was mistaken. She was zoned out, watching TV, and put the crayon in her mouth. From there it just made its way around her lips... around and around.

I ask "what are you doing?"

She just cries. I think she feels guilty, so what more can I do? I send her into the bathroom to wash it all away. The good news is she is clean, but the image will be stuck in my mind forever.
