Do all little girls want to be just like mummy? Little E certainly does. From the time I wake up until bedtime I have a beautiful little shadow who thinks she is 32 not 2. This morning my makeup bag was the latest casualty. I stepped out of the room for a second and she swooped. Usually it is the blusher but today she went one step further; mascara. She knew exactly what to do and luckily she didn't poke her eye out. I had barely left the room but when I returned the silence gave her away immediately. The makeup looked untouched, the mascara lid was back on and returned to my makeup bag - oh she was the picture of innocence. Except for the black smudges around her eye (she had only had time to do one) and the brown eyeshadow around her lips...
This is not an uncommon occurrence - we've had red lipstick drawn all over the face which left stains for days and my favourite was 'bronzer belly' where she took a cream eyeshadow/bronzer palette and smeared the entire contents over her face, chest and stomach. You can't see her face in the picture but you can imagine...
It isn't just my makeup. The hair products attract her magpie like eyes with the straighteners being the holy grail. I am so paranoid about them I can't use them if I am on my own with her. She has also appropriated a small mirror for herself and has to apply her own body lotion and nip balm. So for Christmas what is she getting? You guessed it - her own dressing table!
