Beauty Sleep

Our morning routine has been pretty tight. As the days get colder, I have to plan for an extra 5 minutes in the morning - just to get all our layers on. Gone are the days when we can just put on sandals and we're out the door.

Then there is something that Rama added to her routine: applying concealer. For her eyebags. Just before we walk out, she notices her eyebags in the mirror in our foyer. And asks to borrow my concealer. It has become so habitual that I passed on my concealer to her and just got another tube for myself, just so she can have it whenever she wants. Which is on a daily basis.

At night, when I want her to pipe down and really shut her eyes and go to sleep after the story, I just remind her that if she doesn't get enough sleep, she'll get eyebags.

This is hiliarious! I thought Seba's deodorant thing was bad. He is the only 6 year old I know who puts it on everyday. He puts it on his neck too. His newest thing is hair gel. He's trying to get the "luke skywalker" do. Unfortunately, he just looks like Donald Trump...when will the lip gloss be part of the routine?!

You got a prissy one, too! Oh and lip gloss? That's always been part of the drill. Can't go without it here.
