It’s not easy being a 2 year old diva!

Getting your make-up just right takes years of practice.

Georgia Diva 2
Daddy, does this shade of eye shadow make my cheeks look fat?

Georgia Diva 1
No Daddy, I won’t put Mommy’s makeup away, it’s my make-up now!

Note: prior to make-up application (consists of putting eye shadow brush in mascara and applying it to limbs and face) Georgia stuck her head under the tap, which accounts for the wet hair look.

Good thing I can work through LOTS of noise, silence means trouble around here. Just before being caught in the act her dad commented on the silence coming from Georgia’s direction. NOISE. IS. GOOD.


To be the next winner (or maybe even win again), you need only leave a comment.

EVERY day in August I’m giving away free prizes (maybe more), but at least one. Just like in the past the winners will be randomly drawn and posted here on the site.

The winners will be able to choose one of any of the prizes listed on the flickr set: Anything Goes in August. Once an item is choosen, it will be removed from flickr and will no longer be available (unless I have two … which I do for some).

All you have to do to win each day’s prize is leave a comment on the most current post.

  • Andrea August 12, 2007, 9:51 pm

    haha…those are adorable pictures!! And yes, I TOTALLY AGREE….Noise is SOOOOO good! :)

  • Ness August 12, 2007, 9:55 pm

    You always know there is trouble when there is silence. But isn’t it cute when they fall asleep doing something wrong too.

  • Angella August 12, 2007, 10:01 pm

    Noise IS good! Don’t I know it :)

    She’s a doll, per usual!

  • corey August 12, 2007, 10:15 pm

    oh my…love the pics….check the tude! tee hee

  • Michelle August 12, 2007, 11:11 pm

    I can always tell when my littlest is getting into trouble as he either will get really quiet or scrunch his neck down and hunch his shoulders as he goes off to do something bad.

  • Kathryn August 12, 2007, 11:28 pm

    I wish we were closer. Georgia and Kayleigh would be pals! Kayleigh’s quite the diva herself. Oh wait.. maybe that WOULDN”T work out so well.
    LOVE the pics. and I LOVE her hair!!

  • Bree August 13, 2007, 12:42 am

    How precious! She is so expressive!

  • laura August 13, 2007, 12:58 am

    I’m lucky that if I tell M to close her eyes, and merely touch her closed eyelids with my closed tube of mascara, she think that she’s wearing some :)

  • Richard August 13, 2007, 4:59 am

    Haven’t posted in a while… on vacation… hi Kim! :)

  • Marla August 13, 2007, 5:26 am

    Just wait until she gets into scissors and cuts her hair…all of mine have done that to themselves or each other at some point!

  • Carey August 13, 2007, 5:29 am

    Oh shes so cute! Noise is a good thing.

  • Safire August 13, 2007, 6:30 am

    So cute! Love the faces. :)

  • Mama K August 13, 2007, 7:22 am

    She looks like a handful. But a completely adorable handful of course! :)

  • Alexia August 13, 2007, 7:22 am

    I agree, noise is good. I’ve often found myself typing away on the computer and realize, “uh-oh, it’s quiet!” I generally find my darling 1-year-old in the dogs food and water.

  • Pinks & Blues August 13, 2007, 7:26 am

    OMG! I love that photo! Love it!! With my 3 boys… there is no make-up… maybe we’ll get some make-up when we have a 4th… but let me live through this photo!! Too cute. Was that your brush?? And did you re-use it?? LOL

    I love how the brush is almost up her nose in the first one! Too cute!

  • Christina August 13, 2007, 7:58 am

    I love her curls!

  • Lisa August 13, 2007, 8:13 am

    So cute. We have that rule in our house too. Noise is good quiet means RUN trouble is happening somewhere.

  • Jamie August 13, 2007, 8:18 am

    Ah yes, when there is no noise we worry. We’re generally too lazy to do anything about it, but we worry nonetheless.

  • jw4mkc August 13, 2007, 8:29 am

    Absolutely agreed!! Noise IS very good! If Harlie is quiet..I take off running..although she has found it VERY funny lately to get into my bed and lay back with the covers up under her arms and a bottle.. It is SO cute, but tiring, because I am going back and forth every 3 minutes to make sure that she hasn’t gotten down and destroyed something.

  • Mimi August 13, 2007, 8:31 am

    It’s a gorgeous morning here in Ottawa… hope you have a GREAT one ;-)

  • Cherylyn August 13, 2007, 8:42 am

    TOOO funny! Hope your day is filled with sunshine and not too much mascara!

  • lace August 13, 2007, 8:52 am

    My niece is very much into makeup and nail polish right now. She believes she is wearing makeup if I give her a clean blush brush and she rubs it on her face. Although, now she has been requesting eyeshadow.

  • Priya August 13, 2007, 9:20 am

    WOW she really is a diva :o)

  • Priya August 13, 2007, 9:23 am

    cant wait for my babe to start doing that, priceless memories :o)

  • Karyne August 13, 2007, 9:40 am

    Cute pictures as usual!

  • Charlotte August 13, 2007, 9:48 am

    Thank goodness I have a boy :)

  • PamW August 13, 2007, 9:49 am

    She’s adorable. And I totally agree that silence is bad, with kids of any age!

  • glittersmama August 13, 2007, 10:15 am

    What a cutie. I love those pictures.

  • Diane August 13, 2007, 10:55 am

    My favorite picture of my two oldest nephews is in the bath after an intense make up play session. All kids enjoy imitating mommy!! (Or daddy?)

  • Naomi August 13, 2007, 10:56 am

    Why are girls naturally drawn to makeup? Will my son do that, too?

  • Teresa August 13, 2007, 11:25 am

    I am right there with you!! I have two little diva’s myself and you are correct, Noise is good!!! :) Cute pictures though, that will be a funny memory some day. :)

  • Susy-Q August 13, 2007, 11:46 am

    Silence = something bad is happening. Definitely the rule at our place and our little one is only 1 years old.

  • Cathy August 13, 2007, 12:21 pm


  • Heather August 13, 2007, 1:33 pm

    Love the look on her face in the last picture!

    You’re right about silence-always means trouble!!!

  • Jaime Stephens August 13, 2007, 1:41 pm

    How cute is that? I cannot believe how light her hair is :-D My 2.5 year old thinks that Georgia’s makeup is gorgeous… hopefully she hasn’t gotten any ideas!

  • Deanne S. August 13, 2007, 1:44 pm

    Very cute pictures. Your posts make my life feel a little more normal……

  • Yan August 13, 2007, 2:58 pm

    Oh, she is adorable !!

  • Mrs. Pear August 13, 2007, 2:58 pm

    Oh! This is too much! Definitely a diva in training!

  • Laura August 13, 2007, 3:48 pm

    Yes, I too have developed a sort of spidey-sense that will alert me when I need to check on the kids. Factors that set off the alarm are lack of noise, time since last noise was heard, and location children were last seen.

    There was the time my oldest took a Sharpie to the twins’ face and hands.

    There was the ‘diaper cream incident’ — similar to the Sharpie incident, only the wall, bedding and mattress in my sons’ room was also targeted… as was a very expensive tube of Burt’s Bee Diaper Ointment.

    Then there was 3 days ago when I went to the basement to put the clothes in the dryer, and went I got upstairs, my oldest had opened the FRONT door (we live on a major highway) and no one was inside the house. [Insert panic here.] Fortunately they were drawn to the open garage door and everyone was climbing onto Daddy’s lawn tractor, instead of sitting in the middle of the road, waiting to be made into baby pancakes.

  • Damselfly August 13, 2007, 4:20 pm

    Well, I think she looks great!

  • Paige August 13, 2007, 4:54 pm

    She is so stinkin cute!

  • Montserrat August 13, 2007, 5:03 pm

    Yes, noise is very good. What I want to know is where she learned her application technique from, you or Hayley? :D

  • Ness August 13, 2007, 8:22 pm

    Anything from Hayley yet?

  • alison August 13, 2007, 8:45 pm

    What a cutie! I love her little pout.

  • Kilikina August 13, 2007, 9:02 pm

    Your daughter is simply beautiful. Look at the blonde hair and blue eyes. -Sorry i haven’t been reading/commeting the last week. I’m usually a regular reader but I’ve had a very busy week.

  • Mefeng August 13, 2007, 9:51 pm

    Georgia is such an adorable diva!!

  • Safire August 14, 2007, 6:02 am

    So cute! Had to come back to show my daughter…makeup picture! Makeup picture!

  • Joa August 14, 2007, 10:37 am

    Elle est adorable! Et ce petit air boudeur est à croquer!

  • Deb August 14, 2007, 12:07 pm

    What a darling! Won’t be showing my daughters the pics – they’re obsessed with makeup!

  • Dana August 14, 2007, 12:35 pm

    Love it!

  • Michelle August 14, 2007, 5:06 pm

    Oh, goodness. Hysterical. Yes, silence, unless accompanied by deep sleep, is rarely a good thing.

  • Jamie August 14, 2007, 7:23 pm

    Hey, it’s interesting that she was putting makeup UP her nose… is there something you want to tell us? ;D Is this a new trend?

  • lace August 14, 2007, 8:19 pm

    my friend experienced the silence not too long ago. She went to investigate and found her daughter had cut a lot of her hair off. The scissors went in the trash. The next bout of silence, she found her with nail polish all over her feet and hands with lipstick all over her face. All of those items went up as well
