My friend Susie recently reported that her nine-year-old grand-daughter Sydney had asked her why her skin was “like crepe paper". We laughed about it. Kids can be brutally honest.
I figured I had a few years until our young grandchildren would notice my “imperfections,” but I was wrong. When we visited them last weekend, I mentioned to my daughter-in-law Katrina that my favorite tinted moisturizer had been discontinued, and my search for an acceptable substitute had failed. She suggested that I try hers. And on Sunday morning I did.
Later, driving back from lunch with the kids, Peter, who knew about my search for a moisturizer, asked how I liked it. I replied, “The color is too light for me, but it’s got possibilities.”
From the back seat, six-year-old Leo, piped up…
“Well Grammy, you do look less wrinkly!”
