A balmy problem

Nicholas has a fascination with my lip balm. He loves to turn the bottom, take the top off and put it on his lips. Unfortunately, I do not like him slobbering on my expensive lip balm and tantrums ensue.

The other day I found a wooden play lipstick that I had bought a couple of years ago for a friend's daughter. This morning, I gave it to Nicholas in place of the lip balm he had raided from my handbag. Am I a bad mother for giving him such a girly toy?

He spent the rest of the day carrying it around, turning the bottom and putting it on his lips (and chewing - yuck!) and as he knows that lipstick is for kissing, every time he put it on, I got a kiss. Surely that's a good thing!
