We all have a "my child got into my lipstick/makeup/perfume" story.
Amazingly enough my story took place after being a mom for 7.5 years. I walked into the bathroom to discover Samuel in there playing. I didn't even realize he was in there until I saw him! And then, I saw him.
Actually, I saw the pile of toilet paper on the floor first. And then I saw the light tan patches all down the front of Sam's pajamas. And black smudges all over his hands. And more light tan patches on the throw rug.
Really it was my own fault. I left my makeup bag on the bathroom counter within easy reach of a certain 2 year old when standing on the toilet. It was a newbie mistake. You'd think by child #4 I would know better.

The boy ruined every single piece of makeup I owned. I had to throw it all out and start over new.
I'll be honest, I wavered between anger/frustration and laughter. I felt frustration over cleaning up a huge mess at bedtime and at the expense of all new makeup. But, the little rascal looked so guilty and cute that I found it hard not to laugh at the whole situation.
In the end, laughter won (although Sam didn't laugh at his discipline) and photos were taken. Today I have a funny 'Mom story' and all new Mary Kay makeup so all's well that ends well.
