The serum and I are getting along famously. No reactions to my sensitivity-prone eyes and my lashes actually feel less brittle than a few days ago. I’ve noticed as I get older, even though I use Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover to gently remove makeup, my lashes tend to get brittle; especially when colder weather blows in. They feel softer today, just like my skin does after cleansing and moisturizing. How does your skin feel this winter?
Along with my 30 day lash challenge, I had another challenge to overcome today. It was the “how to keep my 6 year old entertained on a frigid and snowy day in the Midwest challenge”. What I discovered at the end of the day might surprise you, but then again maybe not.
My son asked to go out and play in the snow. When I replied “no”, he immediately asked “why not?” To which I replied because “it’s 12 degrees outside”. Those aren’t just pretty snowflakes floating around, it’s cold out there. Brrrrrrrrrrrr. We’re stayin’ in kid.
After grumblings subsided, and laundry, dishes and house chores finished (with aforementioned grumbling kid’s assistance of course), it was time to have some fun. Jayden made a “market” out of ordinary things that he liked. Each item had a plate. He was selling Dixie cups of water, bananas, cookies, graham crackers, and crayons. He labeled the cost of each item and handed me a bucket of Legos and said “here mom, the Legos are your money to go shopping.” The sales and management skills don’t fall from the ole’ tree. He said I’m the manager just like daddy. Now if that doesn’t make you feel beautiful inside….what will?
Then we agreed to play a board game and he insisted we play Monopoly. Even though he doesn’t know how to count change in the hundreds, he still loves to buy and sell and trade. A little marketer in the making. Then it was time for dinner – homemade pizza! While helping sprinkle mozzarella on top, he had to sneak a few handfuls for himself. Then a movie, popcorn, bath time and bed. It was a great stay inside, warm and toasty, snowy Saturday. And when we said our prayers and went to bed, I looked back on the events of the day and thought, how awesome is it all? I am truly blessed. A beautiful day.
While I’m sharing precious moments like these with my son, I’m not only building memories. While we’re doing life, I’m still “gettin’ my glam on!” The serum is still working on my lashes. My cleanser, moisturizer, and day solution are still working on my skin. While I sleep night solution and eye firming cream are fighting back time. I drink my eight glasses of water and take my vitamins. I do things in a few stolen moments each day and they work continuously to keep me healthy and beautiful. All the while I’m living a truly beautiful life with my family, friends, and the ones I love. True beauty at its finest.
