Remember when I shared Grace’s new family portraits?
I left something out of that story.
See the lines across my and Joe’s foreheads? You may notice that Grace and the new baby (tiny though she is) do not have those same lines.
Grace told me so.
I was shocked to hear that I have wrinkles.
I have splotches, red spots, bumps, and big pores, but I do not have wrinkles.
You should have seen the faces I made into the mirror that night, trying to recreate my wrinkles. I frowned. I scowled. I grinned. No wrinkles.
Then I made my mom face, the one where my eyebrows are raised in that “What did you just say to me?” face.
All across my forehead.
Grace must see that face a lot to draw me with wrinkles in her family portrait.
She’s 3. She needs to see that face a lot.
