The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

"Mummy" why do you have lines on your head?

Posted on

9 Comments

When I heard the words "mummy, why do you have lines on your forehead", I could have quite easily buried my head under the Lilypad! Instead, I smiled sweetly and told my darling daughter that they were laughter lines from the happy and fun life I lead.
 
I suspect however that those lines on my head are more to do with being a busy working mom, frowning  .... and maybe more than a little laughter.
 
I do frown, I frown when I am confused, cross, perplexed and even when I am happy - I think it maybe a habit passed down from my mother but it is one I cant shift!
 
I did momentarily wonder whether we should therefore be stocking anti wrinkle creams or collagen fillers in our "gifts for grown up's" and began scouring the country for suppliers but this is not what our customers really want (although the smooth, line free skin is appealing).
 
Our website has been designed by a parent for parents and we all know that children do lovingly place a few additional lines and grey hairs to our collection but beauty products are not our forte!
 
I think that despite my initial horror of my daughter comments, they were sugar coated a little, when she followed it up with "mummy, how do I get those lines because I want to be just like you"
 
Maybe those lines aren't all that bad after all!

  1. I get asked that too! :( Sadly I also suffer from acne, so I get 'why have you got those massive horrible red spots?' Why indeed?

  2. Thanks for linking up to my bloghop! Kids are so cute sometimes aren't they :) Not so lovely that they point out the lines though!

    I dither between loving my lines and wanting to do something about them. I checked out your site and love it. Will be back here soon!

  5. I totally empathise with this as last week my toddler saw me in my undies and said "ugh, yukky Mummy, you need clothes on!" And there was no sugar-coated line afterwards either!

  7. I'm so much happier in my skin than I was in my early twenties that I don't mind it being a bit wrinkled these days. Here's to laughter lines rather than wrinkles! Thanks for entering the blog carnival.

  8. As a fellow frowner (I give myself a perfect triangle between my eyebrows!), it's great to hear I'm not alone!! :o)

    Such a sweet story and one many young children will ask their mummies no doubt.
