Well, this is what happens when they get quiet! And he had fun doing it to himself, or so he says.
I don't know why, but Kevin gave himself 'chickenpox' with a red Sharpie! ALL OVER, from head to toe, he has red dots. He even practiced writing his letters on one leg!
He did all this while I was on the computer editing pictures for Etsy. By the time I realized he had been quiet for a while it was too late. He told me he went behind the recliner to do it. I didn't catch him in the act. I was so engrossed in what I was doing that I didn't even miss him. But then he came out and showed me! I couldn't get mad. It was too funny!
He said he wanted to give himself chickenpox. I don't know if he saw it on Clifford or one of the other shows he watches, but something put the idea in his head. The bad thing is that it's not washing off very well. Other than that, when I look at him I just smile! I told him that he might have to live like this for a while until it wore off. He just looked at me and said, "It was fun Mommy. I don't care if it doesn't come off." So then I asked him what would happen if it never came off? He just shrugged his shoulders like he didn't care!
Oh, well. I don't know if he learned a lesson or not, but I did. When kids get quiet, they're up to something! And I hid the markers just in case.
