If you'd posted thi sin Femininism, I'd go all catsbum mouth. But as you didn't, I'll say YABU, it's harmless and she'll soon forget.

so why do you wear lipstick at all, if not to look prettier? wink

Um....I can't see the big deal

warthog Tue 06-Sep-11 18:55:28

jeez lighten up!

msrisotto Tue 06-Sep-11 18:56:21

LOL OldLady!

When I started reading this I thought itvwas going to be that your Nan had told her off. She is just having fun with her greatgrand daughter, be grateful!

ComeWhineWithMe Tue 06-Sep-11 18:56:53

yeah why do you have lipstick?

OldLadyKnowsNothing Tue 06-Sep-11 18:56:58

Crap spelling there. And typing. blush

I think I'd also be worried about the hygiene aspects of it as well hmm

If your nan knew the anthropological reason why women think wearing lipstick is attractive, then she'd soon chuck it in the bin grin

Is this serious? Of course YABU. Sometimes you just need to lighten up and not go raging about every little thing. It was just a sweet moment between GGM and GGD. No need to read waaaay too much into it!

What if the nan has a lurking coldsore? The kid'll be infected for life shock Nasty imo.

I wouldn't be furious but I would be a bit annoyed. I want my DD not to give a rats arse if she is pretty or not and be climbing trees and jumping in muddy puddles until she is in double figures if possible! I didn't start using make up at all until I was about 15 and only then for really special occasions. Even now it doesn't go much beyond a bit of powder to take the shine off. It takes me less than a minute. It only took me about 5 on my wedding day. On another thread people are bemoaning the early sexualisation of children - an inconsistency perhaps?

Get over it.

usualsuspect Tue 06-Sep-11 19:07:48

Can't you find something else to be all outraged about ffs

FlubbaBubba Tue 06-Sep-11 19:17:22

Oh FFS it's fine. It wouldn't be fine if she permanently tattooed lipstick and eyeliner on your 18mo. I think that would be bad.

hiddenhome hmm What if the nan had, shock horror, lurking love for her granddaughter and was having a bit of harmless fun? wink

blimey dont some people get offended at silly daft little things

worraliberty Tue 06-Sep-11 19:24:45

Bloody hell, talk about easily offended.

magicmelons Tue 06-Sep-11 19:25:21

Whoa, pick your battles that's a silly thing to get annoyed about. You are the person who will instill confidence and self worth in your dd not some flippant remark by your dear old nan.

Get a grip your Nan was just playing with her.
