I remember when my sweet little girl would look at me and do nothing but smile with love in her eyes.
Those days are now gone!!
Conversation with my 9 year old daughter, in the car...
Em: "What are those lines around your mouth?"
Me: "Those are called laugh lines."
Em: "Are you sure they aren't called wrinkles?"
Me: "NOOO.. they are laugh lines! It shows people that I love to laugh and smile."
I could see her staring at me and my "lines", I started to get very uncomfortable.
Me: "Why are you staring at me?"
Em: " I was just wondering, if those lines by your mouth are from smiling, what are the lines on
your forehead from."
Me: "Ugh.. those are from....thinking, yes, from thinking so hard."
I can tell by her silence she is thinking about something, I'm kind of afraid what she's going to point out next about me.
Me: "What are you thinking about?"
Em: "I'm not thinking and I'm surely not going to smile anymore!"
Me: "Why not?"
Em: "I DO NOT want those wrinkles like yours!"
Me: "They are NOT WRINKLES THEY ARE LINES DAMN IT!!"
Em: "I thought you use that cream that helps with wrinkles?"
Me: "I do use that cream Emilie, but it doesn't help with those lines because they are not wrinkles!
I thought you said you weren't going to think anymore?"
Em: "Oh yah, I forgot."
Seriously, after that conversation I got a whole new set of wrinkles.. SHIT.. I mean LINES.
