Because the World Isn't Colorful Enough

When Elizabeth is being quiet for more than 30 seconds, there is always need for worry. The child does not occupy herself with anything that isn’t dangerous or potentially lethal. Elizabeth is the reason I’ve had to call Poison Control four times in two years. The last time was for eating handfuls of potting soil. Is it poisonous? The answer is no, even if your child eats several mouthfuls. There, I just saved you the humiliation in case you have your very own Elizabeth. Upon first glance she looks innocent enough:


Then she stands up. The look on her face is reminiscent of a celebrity’s mug shot I saw recently.


You don’t see it? How about now?


Yes, that’s permanent red marker. All over her cute little legs. All over her cute little legs the day before Easter. In which she was scheduled to wear cute little ankle socks trimmed with fancy lace. Needless to say I ended up at Meijer buying the thickest tights I could find because PERMANENT RED MARKER DOES NOT COME OFF. Nothing says Thank You Jesus For Rising From The Dead like graffiti-ing all over yourself.

    Elizabeth is proof that the “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”! I need to find pix of her dad’s adventures with the same guilty look!
