I do the bulk of the grocery shopping in our household, but in between those giant Costco and Wal-Mart trips I often send James to the store for the things we run out of. (You know I really mean the things that I forgot!)
When he goes he has each of the kiddies take turns accompanying him, and usually lets them pick some kind of cheap dollar-ish toy to bring home. A few weeks ago it was Tori’s turn to ride along and she came home with… Makeup.
It was just a small little pack from the kids section, but I was still surprised. Had James really let her pick it out? Did he really approve of this? After some pretty easy detective work, I discovered… he hadn’t even looked to see what she had picked. Good thing it wasn’t… well I don’t know. I suppose it was only the grocery store, but still.
The next morning after bath time, I found Tori all set up at my get ready table…
So, I fought my initial reaction, which was to throw it in the garbage… because I am that kind of mom. And tried to see the positive. At least she is sharing… right? So we struck up a deal. She is only allowed to wear it when we are staying home…and has to wash it off when we leave. So days home for us mean… BRIGHT blue or green eyeshadow. Great.
