Help, my toddler is applying war paint and turning colors!
Here is my little toddler after a few crazed minutes of playing where she should not have. She escaped to the upstairs going unnoticed by all. She is quite stealthy. She walked past her brother doing feats of math, her sister playing Barbies, and her other sister with her nose deep in a book. Me? I was in the bathroom...geesh...you need to know everything? Can't a girl get a potty break? Anyway, she decided it would be fun to get into my make up that I left on my dresser. She did a great job on those eyes, huh? Once she was discovered in the act, she promptly left the room with her head down. I began to clean up the mess on my dresser to ensure her mitts couldn't reach it again. As I was doing that...she went past her sister with her nose deep in a book, past her sister playing Barbies, and past her brother doing feats of math to find her way into the kitchen. Someone left the baby gate open AGAIN! I head downstairs to find her playing with the food coloring that was left in the wrong drawer. What's the wrong drawer? Any drawer my toddler can reach. So, now she emerges with bluish green hands and feet. Did you notice the sticker on her foot? She applied that as well. She stole it from her sister as we walked past her brother doing feats of math, her sister playing Barbies, and her other sister with her nose deep in a book, on the way to the bathroom to get cleaned up.
By the way baking soda removes food coloring beautifully! At least from skin...I can't say the same for my upstairs carpet. That's okay..it's all part of the story of a home, right?
Here she is clean as a whistle! The baking soda did a great job! She got all clean and dressed again to go past her sister with her nose deep in a book, past her sister playing Barbies, past her brother doing feats of math, to the dining room for her cup of juice. Except as I was filling her cup, she grabbed her sister's cup and spilled it on the computer chair. She ran to me and said, "mommy spill...mommy spill...need napkin." At least she tried to clean it up.
