Make up lessons

Not so long ago I won a contest on Supernanny Where Are You? and I recently received my prize in the mail. Dana sent me a sweet little note and several sample cards along with my satin lips. In her note she suggested that Ciara and I could have some girl bonding time using the cards and that I should document our fun here on my blog.

Your wish is my command Dana!

First of all, this morning I got a tad involved with catching up on blogs and momentarily forgot that I have a 3 year old in my house. She had discovered the satin lips stuff sitting on my desk and insisted upon carrying the tubes around the house...with strict instructions that she was not to open them under any circumstances. (Ok, yes I do know that I was unbelievably naive to believe a 3 year old!)
Anyway, as I went to swap laundry I thought about how quiet it had been and remembered what my lovely child had clutched in her fists the last time that I saw her. As I was pulling clothing out of my washer I heard the sound of little feet scurrying around downstairs.
"Ciara! What are you doing?"....complete silence.
A few seconds later I hear some more footsteps, now approaching the stairs very slowly.
"Ciara, were you doing something naughty?"
"What did you do Ciara?"
As she reaches the top of the stairs she hands me the now slimy, hair covered, nearly empty tubes of Satin lips.
"I won't do it again Mommy"

Alright, I so deserved that! I just chuckled and directed my sweet little girl to the bathtub.

This afternoon after her nap Ciara asked me for my "pink lipstick", which is her term for the tube of my lip gloss that I've allowed her to wear recently. I told her that I had something better and we brought out the sample cards. Here's how it went...

Thanks Dana! We had fun. Too bad I still haven't had a chance to check out the satin lips for myself! I promise that I will de-gunk the tubes and experiment soon.

Shannon, I would submit that next to the last photo to a modeling agency - she is seriously gorgeous! Where was I when her hair got so long and beautiful?!?!? I know both of us worked hard waiting for that hair to come in, but hers is way better than the MH's! Glad you had so much fun together!

Oh! I bet she was in heaven. My little girl LOVES to play "beauty shop" and is always asking me if she can wear some lipstick. Cute pics!
