Holes In My Face

It's bedtime, and Makenna and I are lying in bed, facing one another and talking. She's 3, so the conversation usually goes along the lines of me making her stuffed cow, Baby Cowie, talk, or if I'll rub her back some more or the fact that her favorite colors are red and pink.

Makenna: <gently holding my face and looking closely> "Mommy, you have holes in your face."

Me: "Those are called pores, baby. Everybody has them. They are an important part of our skin."

Makenna: "Oh, yes! I know, Mommy! Those are where the beards come out."
