Grace and I recently had a little makeup day.

Then I came across this post and wondered — am I teaching her that she needs this stuff to be pretty? That’s she’s not good enough as she is? But I remember playing with makeup as a kid or having my mom paint my nails when she painted hers to go out. And I turned out ok — well, at least I can put out the trash without first “putting on my face.” There are similar sentiments in the comments of that post. It was really a thought-provoking read, with valid points from many angles. I encourage moms of little girls to check it out.
