If you've spent any time with my daughter, you know of her love for lip gloss. I don't know what it is, but once she gets it in her head, she can't move on until she has her fix. If you try to ignore her, you hear "Lipilee! Lipilee! Lipilee!"
Seriously, it is never ending. She has more stamina than should be allowed in a two-year-old.
This weekend, Evie was doing her typical lip gloss begging in the car. Suddenly we heard "Lip gloss, Daddy!" We both did a double-take - she said "Lip gloss," not "Lipilee!" After months of "Lipilee," we were so surprised to hear her use the real words. Her baby word has been replaced by the real thing. Another bittersweet parenting moment.
But Chris has another worry - how to get his daughter to quit calling his manly Chap-Stik "lip gloss." That's a lesson for another day.
