In which my daughter interviews me about beauty and beauty mishaps with a $50 Visa giftcard giveaway

Mouse: "Mom, at camp they talked about true beauty. They said we should want people to like us for who we are and not for what we look like and that beauty isn't about make-up. They even covered up all the mirrors for a day to show how many times we looked in a mirror to see our appearance. Why don't you wear make-up?"Me: "Well, that's a sort of difficult question. Part of it is what you're talking about. I don't believe we need to hide that we're aging.  Read more

Summer Do's and Don'ts: An Interview of Me by My Daughter

Summer "Do's and Don'ts," an interview of me by my daughter. Mom the weather is getting hotter. What beauty tips do you have for summer? First off, I try to stay moisturized. I use a facial moisturizer with SPF every day and slather my legs and arms with lotion. You know I spend a lot of time outside so sunscreen is a must. Nothing worse than wearing shorts and your legs look dry and scaly. Keep them moisturized. Oh, and shave every day. Hairy legs are not pretty and no one wants to see that.  Read more

In other words, well, in the words of Sophie's two older siblings, we've given up. Sophie, in their opinion, gets away with murder. It's not exactly murder.  Read more

Don'ts Learned From Mom

I've been blogging about the kids for quite a number of years now, and while I talk all about them and the fun things they do, I've never allowed them to have input on my blog. It's my blog, after all. But I think it's high time I remedy that. In an unprecedented turn of events, I'm allowing my daughter to interview me. I promise to answer (most) questions (semi) honestly. Heh. You could be in for a fun ride, people. The mind of a tween-ish girl can go just about anywhere. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride.  Read more
