Yeah, elementary school teacher. Secondary can get dicier, not because it's a requirement, but because so many of the STUDENTS wear so much make-up.

Honestly, well-kept hair (and mine is a mess today) does more for general appearance than make-up, to me.

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.

i think this may also be a regional thing. When I lived in the south you didn't take your morning poo without fixin' your hair and puttin' on your face. We also dressed up more. Even at a casual church people were dressed up on Sundays. In school it was not unusual to wear dresses, hose and heels (middle/high school) Now I live in the midwest and anything above a little light foundation and neutral lip gloss/chap stick is considered "going out" make up. At most of the people I work with (who are out of high school) wear a little foundation, mascara and maybe eye shadow. The old ladies wear lip stick but the younger women usually wear a little tinted chap stick at the most. If my partner shows up with make up I would guess it is left over from a night of partying or there to cover whats leftover from a night of partying. Certainly a different perspective than what i grew up with.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
