Also, a girl and her Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome, Neuro Endocrine Cell Hypoplasia, Lumbar Hemangioma, asymmetrical gluteal cleft, Pectus Carinatum and two Super Sisters and one yummy baby brother.

Sometimes I forget to record everyday things because I am so used to experiencing them. Then the phase or moment passes and I find I miss these silly little moments. Every morning after the older kids leave for school Munchie and I jump into a shower and work on getting dressed and ready for the day. While I am doing something about my face, Munch puts on her lips. This is a slow and methodical process for her. This is her own tube of bright red lipstick. It has to be bright enough to be visible now. She was once content with chap stick but now we need a pop of color.
 She sits on top of the counter close enough to see the details of the process in the mirror. 
She also adjusts her head to make sure that she is getting max coverage. 
Sometimes she gets a little mess. I have to grab her a tissue. At this point I am nearly finished with things myself.
Finally checks are in order.
A little dab more, just for good measure!
And perfection! I usually have to fight off her insistence that she do my lips as well. I prefer more neutral colors and so usually decline her offer.
