Make-up for Molly

Kids learn by observing your behaviour and listening to what you’re saying when you think they can’t hear you. Which also means that if you don’t do something or talk about it, they probably just won’t be familiar with it.
A few girls brought kids’ make-up to Molly’s kindergarten so, naturally, Molly also wanted me to buy her some.
In a shop, she walked up to a shop assistant and asked for “some spray for her neck, a colourful Labello and paint for her eyes”. What she wanted was: some perfume, a lipstick and eyeshadow.
This is how often I talk to my kids about make-up.
(We came back home with green kid’s nail polish. She was interested in it for exactly 20 seconds.)
