His Girly Side

When I was pregnant with Lucas I really wanted a girl. I am a girl, I have a sister, I knew about girls. Barbies, jump rope, fairies and princesses. Nevertheless Lucas is not a girl, so I have learned about trucks and construction workers and dinosaurs and lego and maybe I am more well rounded now. But we still do things that some may consider girly although I try to not cross the line. Crafts, baking and painting toe nails are things we do together. Well tonight Lucas wanted to skip his bath, but still needed to hang out in the bathroom while I washed Nathan. So he opened my cupboard and started to go through my makeup collection. It is not extensive, but I have some of everything. What's this mommy... gold packages of lipstick, blush brushes, different kind of mascara. Some were "cool", some smelled like strawberries and some smelled stinky (the old stuff). Just as I was thinking is this too girly, he pulls out the eyelash curler. This is the coolest thing ever, what is it? A car launcher? No Lucas it's an eyelash curler, but maybe we could launch cars with it....

Till Tomorrow

Jenn I think Lucas will be alright
when My Home Schooler was a little boy he loved his sisters tutu
now if we had lived with his father he wouldnt have been anywhere it
however as we werent I allowed him too
at the mo theres no adverse signs

I think some people get too worried about innocent childhood play :)

I don't think it's a problem that he tests your make-up, but I even think it is funnier to launch cars with the eyelash curler. I love child imagination.

My boys found my tampons...not sure how to explain that one.

Would love to see the cars launched with an eyelash curler, though!
