A Thick, Moisturizing Sheen

Like many young lasses (and undoubtedly a few lads), June has a penchant for chap-stick, and she is lavish in its use. On occasions when she covertly acquires a stick and applies it without supervision, the result is a whole face glistening with a thick, moisturizing sheen.*

* I can't help but be reminded of the scene late in Betty Blue when Betty slowly applies lipstick in large, psychotic swoops across her face. But one really shouldn't liken one's adorable two-year-old daughter to a mentally unhinged character from a French-cinematic freak-fest. At least June hasn't stabbed anyone with a fork. (Yet.)

    No worry about about chapped cheeks for Junebug!!

    Did you and Mr. Clement converse re: this topic? Perhaps June and Molly can share their chapstick.

  3. I'm sure there's already a well-established, interstate kiddie-chap-stick smuggling ring.

    I corroborate evidence of this smuggling ring in my own home, here in Portland. How do they do it?!
