Today Audra came in and I noticed right away something was different… as she came over for my morning hug, I swore I saw eye makeup on her… it didn’t look right to me and not being a makeup expert (add it to the list of things I’m not an expert at), I asked Mrs. D. for her opinion. After scoping out the situation, she decided it was indeed mascara and because of the clumpy sticky look, most likely put on by Audra herself.

About midway through the morning, during Snack Time, when Audra came approached me for another hug (she really loves to hug), I thought I smelled a rather strong perfume.

“Are you wearing perfume,” I asked.

She blushed.

“Yeah, it’s my mom’s… but she doesn’t know I’m wearing it,” she admitted.

“What about your makeup?” I prodded.

“No, I snuck it, but my dad saw before I left,” she confessed.

“Well you look and smell lovely,” I said.

“Lovely… I like that,” she answered.

Another hug.

I’d love to see her mother’s reaction when she gets off the bus and sees and smells her handy work.
