Ultra Tan Man

Getting into mischief can make one so sleepy.



Are you trying to figure out what's on his clothes and hands?



And what got spread all over my bathroom?



Why, it's sunless tanner, of course! My sister got some in a package of sorts, and she gave it to me. And Troy found it and decided his toy bear was looking a little pale.



In case you're wondering, baby wipes work wonders.

I'm thinking of investing in a leash or chain of sorts for him. Just a 10-foot long rope that keeps him in my range at all times. Honestly, I don't ever know whether to laugh, or cry, or be angry. Usually I just end up in shock. Then I take a picture of it, and blog about it so you can thank your lucky stars you aren't cleaning up the messes that I am on an almost daily basis. You're welcome. (Also, when he grows up and has a kid that gets into everything, I can pull out the evidence and say, "Serves you right!")

oh my goodness. That stuff is especially hard to clean. Man, he is just so...into things, isn't he? LOL. So-- he's going to have tan hands and whatever other body parts for days...so sorry. But kinda funny...

Oh, jeez! I'm so sorry!! I should have never given you that stuff... Now he looks like a teenaged girl! I worked at the bakery with a girl who always had orange streaks on her neck, wrists, and hands. :)

It reminds me of that J-Lo movie The Wedding Planner and the upset Bride to be comes in covered in tanner gone wrong. She says something like "Quarter cup of lemon juice, quarter cup of salt, scrub scrub scub." Maybe that would help. What a funny little guy. If you need to send him over to my house anytime please do. I think he would get along great with Austin.

Jodi, I love that movie! I thought of that part, too, yesterday! Fortunately, it's mostly gone with some baby wipes and soap.

The Mother's Curse (aka "I HOPE you have a child JUST LIKE YOU.") NEVER fails. ALWAYS works. ALWAYS.

HAHAHA bet you can't wait for he day! :) I don't know how you do it... you are probably the queen of stain removers by now....

They always seem to find the worst thing to play with. You asked about the tooth fairy, I felt generous and did $1.25, but I have heard of people doing like $5.00.

I think by the time Troy is ready for the "evidence", you might have an entire novel on him. Curiosity is a sign of intelligence, right?

Our boys must be talking to each other and planning their next mess. Soren opened up our jello packets and poured them all over the kitchen tile. He had it all over his clothes I vaccumed all the powder (did not dare get the powder wet...I dread mopping the floor for fear I missed some). I just hope this is a stage that they will soon outgrow.

I have a whole bottle of tanning lotion in my cubbard, unused of course because what Mom has time for that! Probably the reason yours was still available! i am going to remember this and make sure it is up high for when Jack is a little older.
