'I Do It"

Connor's always been indepedent and is becoming even more so as he gets older. His favorite thing to say is, "No, I do it." Most of the time he's very nice about it, but firm at the same time. I try hard to let him do as much as is safe around the house while supervising him. (I tell you, that's exhausting for a mother!) This morning I was trying to get ready and he was interested in my makeup so I just let out a sigh and said, "Sure, you can do it" and hoped for the best. (That's how desperate I was for 2 min to finish getting ready for the day. I sacrificed my makeup.) He was so proud of his "work" that he even "posed" for a picture proudly displaying the black streaks all over his face. I even caught him checking his handy work out in the mirror. It'll be good when Byron graduates. I'm starting to think he needs more "Dad time" and less of me. :)

It is obvious that Connor and Easton are the same age! Easton tells me all the time, "No, I do it by self." so fun! you are brave to let him play with your makeup!!

Cute story. I especially love the pictures of Connor in the rain boots. Are those yours?

Ha ha. I have a feeling, though, that every chance Byron gets he does boy stuff with him. Maybe makeup is just warrior paint. If I recall correctly he got his first jersey before he was even born.

ps... can you add Chris to your approved viewers? his addy is chrisbraniff@gmail.com

I love it! It's funny that Jane isn't more into make up. She just likes my yummy tasting lip gloss. But she's really into the princess thing right now. I'm just waiting for the desire to wear more make up to follow . . .
