Goth girl

The following story is something that would only happen when my camera's not working:

Some of the party favors at WCK's third birthday party were little dinosaur stampers with the ink inside. We have a bunch of them left over, and WCK loves those things. She'll stamp anything that will stand still long enough to be stamped. I try to never let her play with them unsupervised, or the results would be ... ah ... colorful.

Today, however, a blue pterodactyl stamp managed to end up in her room during "naptime". (Actually, I call it "rest time" now, although she neither naps nor rests. It would be more accurate to call it "Trash your room time".)

When she emerged after trashing her room, she had painted both of her lips, her eyelids, her fingers, and her toes dark blue. She looked very Goth-like. The stuff mostly washed right off, although it was hard to get it all out of the little folds of her eyelids. I took my three-year-old to church looking like she was wearing a hint of blue eyeshadow.

By the way, I'm not sure where she got the idea to put on lipstick and eyeshadow, since she has never witnessed her mother doing either one. Unless you count chap stick.
