The Makeup Game

Walking home from Gan today, Raphaela told me that she and some of her friends were talking about makeup, and applying  it as part of a pretend game.  Raphaela also informed me that one of them is not allowed to have makeup, because she is "too young."  (All of three and a half, as opposed to the rest of them who were all grown up at four.)

I don't remember thinking about makeup until high school, maybe, and perhaps I am more old-fashioned than I wish to admit, but it feels very early to have this conversation.

Yes, young, but kids of that age think they're all grown up. Get her face cream and sun screen as "make up," if she insists.
