Beauty Tips for Ministers, The Third Grader Version

So it's been over 100 degrees here in SoCal the whole past week. I've been challenged trying to dress in a manner that preserves a reasonable core body temperature AND a modicum of professional dignity. Today I chose a dark, calf-length skirt, a camisole with built-in bra and over that a long sleeved, silk blouse unbuttoned. Not the height of professional fashion, but I thought I'd done as well as I could given the circumstances. But as we were headed out the door this morning, my eight year old son gave me an appraising look and said, "You need to button your shirt, Mom. Your boob crack is showing."

At his current height, it's just about exactly at eye level . . .

In our house, we have code words (Wondergirl and I).

"Boobalicious": go back and change your shirt.

"Bootylicious": those pants are too tight.

"Crack kills": pull your pants up.

"I see London, I see France": you are sooo not leaving the house in that skirt!

Cheesehead:
Does she say that to you or you to her?

Nothing like our kids to keep us humble!

I love Cheesehead's code words. Might have to incorporate them over here.

ROFL

I'm just trying to imagine the next social situation when I can use that delightful term coined by your child.

Boob crack beats the alternative crack!
Third graders can be so cute and funny!

The beautiful thing is, when she's trying to get out of the house in some hootchie mama get up someday, you can use the SAME LINE back on her!!

Meanwhile, perhaps I should give her a guest spot on BeautyTipsForMinisters!?
