Just Another Day

This picture pretty much sums up my day. K Belle has never fully recovered from two weeks of away-camps. Fever. Cough. Headache. I'm pumping her full of vitamins. It would be a total bummer for her to be sick tomorrow, on her birthday. Boo.

Luau planned for Friday for her. It sure stinks that K Belle and Beau have their birthday in the same week. K Belle's before Beau's. We're usually short on cash and enthusiasm when we get to his day. Same is true for La Petite Belle's birthday and mine ... same week. How'd all that get arranged? Hmmm ... I'm gonna have to do some calculating.

In other news, La Petite Belle and I enjoyed some bonding time.

Despite the red, burning sensation, she enjoyed the experience, and the feel of her skin afterwards.

I first started a skin care regimen, at about 12, coached by my great aunt, a Mary Kay lady. I will never forget these words she said, "Every night that you don't take off your make-up or wash your face adds two years of age to your face." I've never missed a night so I must look two years younger than I actually am. (You thought I was actually going to tell you my age? Right.) I can't even sleep without washing my face. I will pass on my vast knowledge of skin care to my children: If it's burning, it's working.

Off to attempt to make old-fashioned Kool-Aid popsicles with La Petite Belle, with no trays or sticks. Now, this is gonna be interesting.

I hate to admit it but most nights I go to bed without taking my makeup off!! I know! bad, bad, bad. fortunately for me I have good genes!! :)

Yep. It's true. I'm 38 but I look about 88 because I fall asleep without removing my makeup so often. The upside is I get around REALLY WELL for an 88 year old.

Seriously though, I hope my girls take better care of their skin than I have. I am definitely paying for it now.

Two years for every night you don't wash off your makeup? Yikes...that makes me like...90 :/ Maybe I need to start a better skin care regime...

Not to be Debbie Downer, but u ought to have her checked out. My Emma(8) went to her grannie's house in New Orleans last week, had all those symptoms, she took her to the walk in clinic, just to have her looked at..she had SWINE FLU!Talk about scary! Hope she feels better...

No swine flu here. She's actually feeling a lot better today.

Make sure they use good makeup to when the time comes. It makes all the difference!
