Lip Smackers Eaters Anonymous (or L.S.E.A.)

I've been thinking about Martin Luther King, Jr. a little bit tonight, particularly the following quote:

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Tess eats lip gloss. I don't know what Dr. King has to do with Tess's chapstick obsession, nevertheless they are two things that have been marinating in my head tonight. I'm not sure how to break Tess of her yucky habit, but I am sure that I'm personally funding the CEO of Bonnie Bell's next trip to Mazatlan. (That's just a guess. I don't know where the brains behind Lip Smackers vacation. If I made a grundle of money by selling a half a teaspoon of flavored wax for $2, I'd be on my way to Mexico.)

Anyway, I dug my new tube of strawberry vanilla Lip Smackers out of my purse this afternoon and that's what I found. Here's how desperate the situation was: after snapping the above photograph with my Droid phone (LISA) I re-molded the remaining gloss in the tube and used it. Motherhood is so glamorous.

elise. my children have the exact. same. problem.

if my universal planning came true and you were my neighbor and we were sitting on the porch RIGHT NOW watching our children play, i would use that martin luther king quote you so aptly quoted and say "last night at young women's i had this discussion with this girl and i think i could use your feedback."

i just think you'd be the one to know what to say. please work with the universe on this one.
love, your friendly stalker

You know in Harry Potter those flavored jelly beans that are super nasty, but look like the good jelly bellys? Well you should whip up a super nasty dirt/booger/vomit/grass flavored chapstick and disguise it as the good stuff. She might think twice before eating your makeup after that:)

Elijah picks up random stuff off the ground and puts it in his mouth. Gabriel was never so bad. Elijah also eats his t shirts ( really)...I swear the kid has pica....

And you're right...motherhood IS glamorous. Snort.
