the good, the bad and the powder (my gosh, the POWDER!)

The Good:

-Two four year olds laughing and having fun together
-The fact that a friend was over helped me to laugh instead of yell

the crimescene

The Bad:

-two four year olds being mischievous together
-powder is difficult to clean up

the powder girls
powder girlies

The Powder:

I was doing the dishes and they giggled and ran into the kitchen. When I turned around they were standing in a cloud. I saw the footprints and looked a little closer and they were literally covered head to toe. When I gasped they looked at me with innocent eyes and said, “what?” I told them they had to stay outside for a while and they asked, “why?” Then they giggled and said, “at least the bugs won’t like us.” “yeah, they’ll think we smell disgusting!”

why do we have to stay outside?
those aren't tights...
those aren't tights

Oh my gosh, so funny. But what is the powder? Don't tell me it's the expensive kind from the make-up counter at Origins or something...then it won't be as funny.

That girl cracks me up!

That's funny cause my first thought with the last picture was that it looks like they're wearing tights. I'm glad you clarified that. That is too funny.

So naughty and so funny! I love the pictures of the footprints. I often times find myself biting my tongue and not intervening or punishing when I hear my kids laughing and playing even if I know they are being naughty-they need those times to be kids.

love their expressions!

The last post was beautiful, btw. This one reminds me of Spencer and Justin Bleak--same incident, only they were about 11 or 12...somehow it was less cute at their age. Girls in pretty little dresses with powder white legs and eyelashes can really do no wrong, right??

Oh my gosh! How funny- that is a serious talent to get completely covered like that!

This is one of the funniest things I have read/seen today. Nothing like 2 four year old girls being mischievous! Reminds me of when I got into my mothers make up bag before she woke up one morning....had the time of my life! Thank you for sharing this!
