The crime scene on my white bath mat...3 shades of Lancome eyeshadows

The scene on the mirror...that would be cream and eyeshadows mixed together

The make up that is no longer


I am remembering back to when I first started having babies. Babies that became toddlers. Toddlers that like to explore and get into my make up drawer. You think I would have learned the first time Cameron got into my things about 8 years ago. Then Claire, then Carly. They followed in his footsteps.

And, now Catie and her partner in crime Caroline have followed suit! This is the scene I walked into last week. It bothered me so much I couldn't post this until today. I am over it now lol.

The good news we have survived five exploring children and now we only have Courtney to go!!

Diapers: Another hot topic of our weekend. We figure we have about two more years left of two kids in diapers (Caroline and Courtney) and about three more years left in diapers total! This is good! We have been changing diapers for 8 years straight (with many years where we had two kids in diapers at the same time like we do today!) We can get through three more years!!

oooo...that white bathmat, did the makeup ever come out? Maybe your whole gang there is just artistically inclined? LOL

Jillian Kirby said...

Wow... I'd be ticked!! That stuff adds up!! Well, lesson learned! Locks!! They'll do the job! Those girls... I wonder what Caroline and Catie will be like through the teenage years... and Courtney too for that matter!! ;)

Want to get together next week with the kiddos??

Wow Cathy! The fun just never ends. William learned how to open the makeup cases, so I put everything in a basket on a top shelf in my closet. Not quite as convenient, but it works for now. Of course, your little monkeys would easily be able to thwart my cleverness. Guess I'll be investing in locks, too, in another year or so! Hang in there. (And buy cheaper makeup, for heaven's sake! LOL!)

My sister liked putting on my make-up when she was a kid - make-up and high heels.

But now she's not interested in borrowing my blue eyeshadow, hooker red lipstick, and low-heeled naturalizers. LOL

Oh the makeup ! LOL!!

I did that as a kid, my sister did it and now my two girls have a fascination already!

Fun fun !!

Did you have to throw out the white mat ?

This is one of those times when not being much of a girly-girl, I thank my lucky stars I haven't invested in much make-up... I think I'd be horrified to find $30 worth of eyeshadow smeared on anything. I think at this point, the girls own more make-up than I do - pastel shades of chal-power consistency eyeshadow, and a lot of flavoured lip balm...

T: Thankfully YES, it actually came out!! Getting the make up out of the grout...that was a different story lol!! It even came out of my white towels!!!
