when life is tough, apply lipstick

Conversation held yesterday with my 4-year-old:

Anika: “Mommy, do I HAVE to have a shower?”
Me: “Yes”
Anika: “Okayyyyy, I’ll just put my lipstick on!”

What I've learned:
When you have no choice, apply lipstick, smile and get on with it :)


  1. This reminds me of my nan. She taught me to always wear lipstick. Even at the end when she was really sick, she had her scarlet lipstick on in the hospital. Bless her :)

  2. I love it! you've only a few years before she'll be wanting to wear lipstick "for real"!!

  3. Hi ladies, thanks for your comments - there is so much to be learned from children and grandparents!
    I'm definitely going to wear more lip gloss in 2010 :-)

  4. your little girl is wise beyond her years...X

  5. Love this, it makes me smile.

    Years ago, when I was a missionary in Uruguay, the only make up I wore was lipstick. It made me feel put-together. :)
