You Know It's Going to Be a Bad Day When...

An interesting topic of conversation came up the other day. I must say I was not quite sure what to make of it all - but thought you would enjoy it.
Daughter 1: "Mom, are you going to put on makeup today?"

Me: (A bit perplexed - reaching for my makeup drawer...) "Um, yes..."

Daughter 1: "Oh good, you're always in a better mood when you have your makeup on."

Mom: (Speechless, with a deer in the headlights look on my face...)

Daughter 2: "You are Mom, you really are nicer with makeup on..."

Mom: (Still Speechless, looking at my son - )

Son 1: "No, Mom; seriously, it is a much better day whenever you have your makeup on. You are not nearly as crabby with makeup on....

Mom: (You know when you are out numbered! I just reached for the foundation and started putting on my makeup...)

MORAL TO THIS STORY:
*If you come to my house and you do not see me with my makeup on - get going while the getting is good!

*Makes me wonder what type of Mom Tammy Faye Baker was... Her kids must have enjoyed complete and total bliss!

Trust you are having a good day - no matter what you face looks like.

Blessings,

Very cute story, Martie! I must confess I almost never wear makeup and when I do, it is only a bit of blush. I am happy to report that my children are well adjusted, happy, and not in prison! :)

Blessings,

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

I got a good laugh about your moral. I think maybe when we don't feel well, the makeup seems useless. Maybe it is though.lol I have to give that some thought. connie from texas
