Mom's do know it all.

I was in the kitchen making coffee this morning when hormonal teen walked in. Here's how it went:

Supermom ~ Do you have on eyeliner?

Hormonal teen ~ No. She says this as she is walking fast to the bathroom.

She comes back in the kitchen.

Supermom ~ Let me ask you a question. Do I BUY you eyeliner???????

Hormonal teen ~ Blah blah blah.....blah blah blah.... Those are the excuses she is making to me. Trying to plead her case. Blah blah blah.....

Supermom ~ DO I BUY YOU EYELINER????????? THEN WHY ARE YOU WEARING IT?!?!?!

Hormonal teen ~ Blah blah blah blah...........

Supermom ~ Okay, when you get home we will go through your make-up bag and see.

This is where hormonal teen sulks down the stairs to head to school.


I just want you to know that I am not a bad azz mom. I just think young girls with eyeliner all over their eyes look silly and wish their moms would teach them how to apply make-up. No offense to anyone there. I understand that some kids just do it to pizz you off and others do it because they like the way it looks.

Young girls need GUIDANCE with make-up. They need to be taught.

LESS IS MORE when it comes to make-up.

I even live by that motto and I am 34 years old. Make-up should accent what you have not make you look painted up.

Anyway.....that eyeliner will go away today and hormonal teen will learn that I do know it all. As if she didn't already know this.

Go Supermom!!! It's hard to be her age. You think a little thing like eyeliner will change the world you are living in. And she was right it changed to show her momma's not blind...lol It's a hard thing to realize too. She is fighting to look and act older and you are fighting to keep her at her age. Remend her a young girl with makeup is just that a young girl with makeup. She will always be the same person on the inside and you want her friend to like her for being who she is not who she might look like. Anyway by the end of the day the eyeliner will be goone but the sweet hormonal teen she is wont be. That statement may sink in morte with her in about 10 years.

My daughter went through this stage too but I do think it's a stage. Now, she is 16 and doesn't think about make-up at all. In fact, she prides herself on the "natural look".
