Dallin is our troublemaker. He doesn’t mean to cause trouble. He’s just a very curious boy. And boy oh boy does he keep us on our toes.
Today Dallin got into the pantry and found the food coloring. That isn’t necessarily a new thing, but today he actually opened the food coloring. Yellow and blue make green. In Dallin’s case, a little bit of yellow and a whole lot of blue make a dark teal. Which he drank. And covered his hands in. I took him into the bathroom and immediately started the bathwater. I set Dallin on the toilet to take off his clothes. He turned, looked in the mirror, and started to laugh at himself. He pointed to his mouth and said “Mouth!!” I got him to stick out his tongue. He liked that, too. Ches got the camera and we got a few pictures, then threw him into the tub. The water immediately turned a very pretty blue color.
Food coloring doesn’t just wash off. You can get some of with soap, water, and a bit of scrubbing, but with all the stuff Dallin had on his face and hands, it’s just going to take some time. Until then, I will teach him to say “Mmmmm, Smurfs!” anytime someone comments on his new look.
