You beg your mom to put purple sequined cat ears on you, and then you wear them 24/7. ?
And here is what happens when you watch your mom painting her face all the time and find out that there’s a face painting booth at the preschool BBQ, LOL!

Connor didn’t want anything to do with it at first, but then El Hub said, “Do you want to wear makeup just like mommy?” and her eyes widened with amazement and she sprinted at full speed over to the booth.

Have you ever done any theatrical face painting or body art?
