Rushing to get to the movies, my husband and I told the kids we had
to leave "right now" at which point our teenage daughter headed for
the bathroom to apply makeup. Her dad yelled for her to get in the car
immediately, and headed for the garage grumbling.
On the way to the multiplex my husband glanced in the rearview mirror
and caught our teen applying lipstick and blush, which produced the
predictable lecture. "Look at your mom," he said. "She didn't put on any
makeup just to go sit in a dark movie theater."
From the back I heard, "Yeah, but Mom doesn't need makeup."
My heart swelling with the compliment, I turned back to thank this sweet,
wonderful daughter of mine just as she continued, "Nobody looks at her.”
