Next She'll Want the Car Keys

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 Her baby word has been replaced by the real thing.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.

how funny...I found Max (our 2 year old) scrunched down behind a table in our office today...I kept hearing a funny squishy sound...he had his older sisters lip gloss...I think he ate most of it...she said she gave it to him. What a nice sister :o)

LOL.. about the chapstick comment. So cute.. I know my youngest says grown up things all the time and I'm like I just want to cherish the baby times. It really is bittersweet.

This morning, after months of saying "Dad" with no apparent sense of the meaning of that word, Iain saw me filling the coffee pot and said "Dad!"

My husband is the coffee-drinker in our house. And every morning, I fill and prep the pot for him, while Iain watches.


Meanwhile, I guess I can cross "worrying that Evie might ever have chapped lips" off the universal List of Stuff to Worry About.

Yea, Lip Gloss, though I must admit Liplee probably sounds cuter, lol!
