I allowed my nine year old to wear eyeliner and mascara to the school disco. This had quite a strong effect as she has blonde hair and brown eyes.
She was very pleased with the end result. Sorry its such a bad picture. What never ceases to please me is her choice of role model, the woman she has accredited with ultimate cool and to be emulated as far as possible.
"Mummy...................do I look like Avril Lavigne?"
Yes! Score: gutsy broads, one; bimbos nil.
