Today, my four year old son came into the restroom while I was applying my make-up, and asked me "Mommy, are you putting on make-up so that someone will love you?" FML
unlovedmommy tells us more :
OP here! My son says funny things like this frequently, and it never offends me! I encourage his sense of humor, even if he doesn't know what he's saying or why it's funny! I even tell other people about it, so they can get a laugh too. I was encouraged by my brother to post on fml, because it was that funny! He'll tell me sometimes that I don't look pretty yet until I've completed my make-up. That question made my day. After he said it, I just started laughing really hard, and said that was funny. He said it wasn't funny, and told me to stop laughing, which made it funnier! I'm married, so I'm not trying to get someone to love me. I don't really wear a lot of make-up anyway, so it's not really the "high school girl make-up" thing either. And I am an adult. Oh yea, and I say "restroom"! Thanks for all the caring and funny comments! :)

I don't wear makeup so someone will love me. I wear it because it completes my look every day and it makes me feel even more confident. Lots of women can say the same... and I know there's some that go overboard Lol

sorry, I was being sarcastic because I thought her comment was pretty ignorant.

I completely agree with #20, that is why most girls wear makeup. I was going to say I wear makeup because I love it, but instead I left a sarcastic comment. lol

I'm not in high school but when I was (and even now) I wear makeup for ME. It makes me feel good when I put time and effort into my appearance even though I know I don't need it, it's fun!

So you are saying you wear makeup, not so someone else can love you, but so you can love yourself? Maybe thats what the kid wassubty trying to convey this idea of her own value being found in makeup to his this kid is deeeeep

Actually 39 what you prefer is called the all natural look with make up where women apply make up so well you can't really tell they are wearing any. Unless you really do like the real all natural look with sexy pimples, red patches of skin, and baggy eyes.
