In the mornings when I get ready for work, James likes to be my "helper." Usually this means holding my blush brush while I put on my other (minimal) makeup. I have a 5 minute routine, foundation, eye liner, mascara, and blush. This morning James was very keen on being my "very good little helper" because he had several time outs yesterday and he was looking to atone. He's very funny about being super helpful after he's had a bad day, so the good news is that I'm not raising a total sociopath.
Anyway, this morning he was holding my blush, the brush, a mirror and a tube of mascara, demonstrating that he was so helpful that he could hold 4 items at once. I was putting on foundation with a makeup sponge when he asked what I was holding. I told him a makeup sponge. Then he asked, "Does that put black stuff on your face?"
I said, "No James, nothing on my face is black." I'm pretty pale, so I always use a shade of foundation called Ivory. Or Light Ivory, depending on the brand.
James quickly pointed to my large, under eye circles and said, "There momma, its black under there."
I quickly said, "No James, momma is just very tired, but thanks for noticing."
He laughed and laughed. At least I'm still funny, even if I'm tired.
