(re)capturing the fun & wonder

I am a sneaky Mommy

How this Mom tricks her kids into the bath…

Neither of the olders was cooperating when I suggested that it was high time they took a bath yesterday afternoon ("I took one TWO {three} days ago!!!"). Rather than fight over it, I broke out my secret weapon: Tattoo artistry! Each kid got to draw a self portrait on my arms, and then we went to town on them. My Man B got a diamond-back rattlesnake that wrapped around his arm several times, a fire-breathing dragon, and a Pokemon. Miss M did her own, a butterfly and something blue.

These *face* paints smudge so you can’t keep ’em on ;-)
