This is what happens while I'm feeding the baby...

Today the girls wanted to play beauty shop, so I sat on the couch for 30 minutes while they 'made me up'. It was very relaxing, actually. I almost fell asleep once. But there are no pictures of my clown-like face. Then the older girl 'made up' the younger girl. 

Then I said (to the older girl), "Do you want some make up on?" 

She said yes. 

On her way to get herself done, she turned and asked, "Is it okay if I make it scary?"

"Uh, sure," I said. I was more focused on getting dinner for the screaming baby than worrying about her choice of eyeshadow color. 

The next 15 minutes passed in bizarre serenity. I think I was too happy they were playing nicely to be concerned about the quiet. 

I should have been concerned. 

Somehow I hadn't envisioned this when she asked about 'scary' makeup.
