I have three girls, ages 5, 3 and 20 months, and all three of them share a love for creams and make-up. Right on cue at around eighteen months they begin foraging in the cupboards, and always end up with my most expensive face cream, or favorite mascara all over them.
Where am I you ask? Well, it's a fair question. As I spend most of time cleaning milk up off the floor and making snacks, chances are I'm in the kitchen. They're clearly in cahoots: they get me busy and then BOOM!, sneak upstairs and pillage through my make-up.
(Yes, I considered child-proofing the cupboards, but I find that stuff so incredibly annoying that I just wound up breaking it off. Currently I'm using elastic bands to thwart their efforts.)
My five-year-old will at least ask me now if she can use some of "Mommy's stuff." As for the other two, I've been hoping to find a toy they will be interested in. I'm currently trying to get them hooked on television.
I've attached some photos. My daughter Stella went for it at Easter with my mom's Lancome mascara. (Thanks for that. I love replacing other people's expensive stuff.) The girl in white? That's Penaten Cream — a nightmare to get out.
I will say this: If you're ever looking to waterproof yourself, Penaten is perfect.
