First Wrinkle

No.  I'm not talking about my first wrinkle.  I got one of those a long time ago.  I'm talking about my ten-year-old daughter's first wrinkle. 

"Mama!"  she cried this morning.  "I have a wrinkle."

"Seriously?" I said.  "You're ten years old.  How could you possibly have a wrinkle?"

She scrunched up her forehead.  "Look!" she said.

"Well, of course you're going to have wrinkles when you scrunch up your forehead," I said, hardly surprised.

Then she stopped scrunching.  "Look again," she said.

The wrinkles were there, barely detectable, but still present.

"Uh oh," I said.  "Better get some Oil of Olay on that!"

She ran up and plastered her face with that stuff.

I guess I better go find her a bottle of Miss Clairol.  Gray hairs will be next!


  1. hahaha maybe all that mud brought them on

  2. be careful with that.... i just saw a 20/20 in which girls as young as 18 are now getting botox... and it's not in secret....

    1. Wow! That is so sad. No botox for my kid - not even for me!

  3. OMG that was a truly funny story - and cute too!

    Hi Sherry, I stopped by to say hello. You have an amazing blog. ^_^

  4. I love the innocence of little children! So so cute!

    1. You just never know what they're going to come up with!
