Inked. (Non-toxic, fortunately!)

We have to be really careful what we leave out on the table. I turned around and found Andy with Kate's little black stamping pad. He had the lid off and was licking it.



Ewww.

I chased him down with the camera. Couldn't get him to hold still long enough for a clear shot!



Apparently Andy was trying to give himself a back-of-the-neck tattoo. Too bad his mom had to stifle his self-expression. Mom just doesn't get it.



I found the lid on the floor, looking surprisingly juicy.

Everything cleaned up fairly easily. I popped Andy in the tub and gave him a scrubbing. I'm glad it wasn't something worse!

Goodness. I'm glad it wasn't toxic. I hope it tasted good. ^-^

Actually I hope it didn't taste good, so perhaps he won't be as likely to do it again. He certainly is inquisitive.

Hahahaha! That makes me laugh.

That reminds me of that scene in the movie The Patriot, where Heath Ledger's girly tricks him into drinking tea laced with ink, so he has black teeth...

Makes for perfect Easter pics!!! ;)

Oh my! Black ink. Glad it washed up easily. I have been there. It was blue. ;)

Well, he's adorable inked up, anyway! And he does look rather proud of himself!

Oh my how fun was that! :) I have a scrap book I did of all my daughters "Uh-Oh's" and ink is one of them! I never think of the mess first, I run for the camera!

Love the cute little inky smile!!! That makes me shudder to think of the taste, though! Ewww. I guess he thought it was licorice flavor or something!

Yikes! Love the tatooing and self expression. Reminds me of when my daughter got into my blush and had it all over her face and lips, kinda reminding me of a Tammy Faye Baker wannabe. Another time she got into vaseline, not as easy to clean up. Glad it cleaned up fairly easy for you and wasn't toxic!

Mary said...

That's a lot of ink! Apparently, he liked the flavor.

Hey Andy, do you want fries with that?!
