Mowgli coined a new word tonight. Sminkles: Wrinkles that come from smiling.
Background: Mowgli noticed and commented on my forehead wrinkles tonight during dinner. Then he asked why his dad doesn’t have as many as I do, even though he’s older than me. I told him it’s probably because I tend to worry a lot more than his dad does. Then I pointed out that I have other wrinkles, too (what was I thinking?) — around my eyes and mouth — but that those are from smiling so much, and that he and his dad make me smile.
The worry lines I could do without. But the sminkles? Bring them on!
P.S. – I think it’s time to cut some bangs. 😉
