My husband called me at work today and asked, “What takes red food coloring out?” I asked back, “Out of what?”
Let me show you some pictures and you can fill in the rest of the conversation for yourself.
Poor Meat was totally beside himself. He thought they were going to be stuck home all day because, to use his words, “I’m not taking her out into public like this!”
I was cracking up. I mean, once you’ve had your eight week old baby handed to you with tar on her heels, there is very little that can shock you anymore. This is seriously the funniest (and cutest) thing I’ve seen in a long time. The red handprints all over my carpet aren’t quite as funny – but they kind of are! And look how much fun she’s having!
Apparently, I can’t follow instructions. According to Pip Stitch’s tag, I was supposed to post the fourth picture from my fourth folder; not the sixth from the sixth. I figured that, with my luck, the 4th of the 4th would be a blurry picture of my thumb or something. But it’s actually a really good picture. My mom took this picture of mine and my husband’s fishing boat down at The Lake of the Ozarks last summer.
A couple summers ago, Meat’s uncle called and asked if we wanted the boat. It had been Meat’s grandfather’s. My darling husband didn’t want it because it had been sitting outside so long, but I told him that I really really wanted it. So he went up and dragged it home for me. Would you believe that, after sitting outside for over a decade, that engine started right up? There was a little smoke and some oil was required, but it started! Anyway, we’ve had a lot of fun with the boat and Meat is very glad I made him go get it.
And apparently this boat is very unusual because of the steering. I don’t know about that, all I know is that when we go to a gas station pulling our boat, men come up and ask my husband about it. So it must be cool.
I would love to post a link to Pip Stitch’s blog, but I still can’t figure it out. So if you don’t mind, just look to your right and there is a link over there.
