Someone Wasn't Watching

For Mother's Day this year I was showered with beautiful jewelry. I loved all of it, but it wasn't my favorite gift. Sunday after our big family dinner, my husband and two of my daughters went out of town and left all the kids and grandkids with me. There were lots of them. We had a great time and I thought I had everything under control until Tuesday afternoon. I heard Layla come around the corner saying,"Get this off." Apparently she had found Grace's purse and decided to use her dark brown lipstick as face makeup. She knew she had done a no-no and was upset with herself but became really tearfull as I tried every thing I could think of to get it off. Nothing budged it. I finally consulted the highest authority (goggled - "lipstick off toddler") and used baby wipes with baby oil. Worked like a charm. And the best news is that Lane hasn't fired me as Grandma Kate.

I think it's a good look for her and I would never fire you. Can you watch her again next weekend??

I love it~ I've actually seen that "look" at my house and like the good mom I am I let it gradually wear off. I never thought about googling it to figure it out.

She is just way too cute.
