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.  😉
