Toddlers & Tiaras...umm,,,, I mean Tattoos





Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
If you don’t check in on your toddler
This is what she'll do







I peeked around the corner
And to my surprise
My girl had tatted herself
All over her thighs







With black pen she scribbled
From her head to her toe
Making many a mural
Channeling Van Gogh







Then she flashed a smile
And I laughed so hard
Today she scribbles with pen on her legs
In a few years she’ll be stealing my bank card







PS – 3 baths later and it is still there…
PPS – OK now 4 baths *update*

That last photo is stunningly beautiful. And actually I think I prefer Indigo's tattoos to the temporary tattoos my 3 year old has been asking for lately...

My girl did that too.
I used alcohol swabs (for cleaning wounds) to clean it and it came off right away.

Holly said...

Oh boy!! She must be getting to that wonderful age...

Too funny! Maybe this is Indigo's way of politely saying she'd like a nose ring? :)

Nicole said...

Oh my goodness. You always crack me up :) Enjoy these little kid moments. They are so sweet, unless of course you find they've used that pen/marker on the wall...

Ps- I added a link up portion to These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight. I'd love for you to stop by and share one of your recipes if you feel like it. Have a good one.

Too cute! I'm sure that wasn't what you thought when you first happened on the scene, though.

After my daughter decorated her tongue with marker, I put markers on parental guidance only. You are so much better spirited about than I was. I said, A-l-e-x-a (with much emphasis), I can not believe you did that. All I could think of was what toxic things did she ingest. That last photo of your daughter simply stops my heart from beating. So cute. I took lots of close ups of my children's faces and toes. I love all your pictures girl.
