Drive Through Eyebrowist…?

I’m supposed to be packing. I’m supposed to be cleaning, packing, child caring, and sooo not supposed to be blogging. But Seth-10mth needed to nurse and nap, and now he’s snuggled up next to me and oops! There’s a laptop within reach…

I’ve done almost everything on my Get Out of Town list. Including pack the kids, paint my toenails (important, y’all, important), clean the bathroom so the always stylishly dressed interior designer does not get cheerios stuck in her shoes. I forgot the eyebrows, though. Yes, that was actually on the list, and it is not yet crossed off.

When you do hours of intense face to face therapy with a kid who delights in your every single imperfection and shortcoming, ‘Eyebrows’ totally gets put on the Get Out of Town to do list. And it didn’t get done.

And while Mike insists that the car be washed just as we leave on any road trip (i have no idea why – it’s about to be bug spattered for hundreds of miles)… well, i’m thinking he will be distinctly less understanding of my need to visit an eyebrowist before we hit the road. But I’ll give it a shot.

And pack the tweezers just in case.

I completely understand. Eyebrows are very important.

Okay, I just spent a weekend in Manhattan visiting a friend and I am both fascinated and a little horrified to report that BIG EYEBROWS ARE BACK. There was a whole article in the NYTimes about it. We’re going back to the days of Brook Shields apparently – and by ‘we’ I mean the lunatics in the high fashion world. But at least you now have a valid (though probably temporary) reason for not plucking – it’s a fashion statement!

HS – say it isn’t so! Oh, man… I’m never in the trend at the right time.

HM – maybe while Mike feeds the kids you could find a great little salon to wax them? Maybe not. Bring the tweezers, just to be safe.

Okay…so in my book, big eyebrows will never be in style! What a disaster. I can’t imagine going without tweezers:)

You’re either really thoughtful, or really crazy!

God bless you and your family, and have a safe trip.

Wow, I found an eyebrow shaver thing that works really well. No more tweezing for me!

Have fun on your trip!!

I should do my eyebrows more often. They are just so light, I forget they exist.
