clearasil anyone?

tonight
the big girl says,
with deep concern:
"mommy,
you have a mosquito bite,
right there on your chin!"

me: "yes, well honey,
that is called a pimple"

god love her
she will know
soon enough

and hello,
i thought i was past pimples people!
come on
cut a woman a break,
not a break out!

oh, and thanks for keeping it real honey!

too cute!! gotta love the honesty of little ones!

i swear the day i realized i could no longer justify $24 for my fave estee lauder foamy facewash my face rebelled with a massive pimpley breakout- yuck! but after about a week of trying other washes i got it back to normal thank goodness - now i am hooked on the clean and clear creamy stuff (and it is only $5! huge improvement!!)

I keep wondering when I'll stop getting pimples. I always have at least one... The little buggers! MEH!

ha ha I have had that happen with little kids before.

I thought I should be past break outs too. Apparently not though! I thought I paid my dues in high school! what the heck?

Yep, my stress manifests itself in huge pimples right in the middle of my chin!

Gotta love 'em for keeping it real! LOL

I get a good one at least once a month. That is why I finally invested in some good cover-up!
