A Make-over?

Yesterday I had an interesting conversation with one of my sweet girls who has just started to warm up to me. (And today is day 100 of school!)

As we are walking to PE she asks me, "Can I bring my sister's makeup to school tomorrow?"

I think a little and say, "No, I do not think that is a good idea." (Or it might have been "no.")

She responded, "I could give you a make-over." She used a very sweet and sing-songy voice.

Me incredulouly, "Do you think I need a make-over?" 

Then she said, "You need to wear make-up to be cute." More sing-song.

So, we were at the gym and I didn't say anything else. I wear hardly any make-up, and I wouldn't win a beauty contest, but that is ok with me. 

Apparently, I should think about getting some.

Pin It!


  1. Posh! You are beautiful! Inside and out! You don't need makeup! I promise!

  2. I think an appropriate response could have been, "I like the way I look. Some people like to wear make-up and that's okay, but it isn't needed to be cute or pretty."

    Young girls need more amazing role models like you who are confident in who they are!


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one!
