And Today It Was Two Things - Both of Which I Preferred Not Needing to Know
Today was one of THOSE days. This afternoon as we were all getting ready to take Claire to soccer practice, I ran upstairs to put some laundry away. Kate came upstairs with me and somehow located several Sharpies and had a little fun.
Bad News: She did all this while sitting on my bed.
Good News: The duvet we currently have on our bed is solid black, so we'll never even know if she got some on there.
Bad News: Her feet are STILL covered in black marks.
Good News: Her legs were spared.
Bad News: Her legs were spared because she was wearing leggings, which got Sharpie on them.
Good News: The leggings were dark blue.
Bad News: Not quite dark enough blue to disguise the black marks entirely. And they were new. This was only the 3rd time she had worn them.
Good News: I learned today that, just as the internet suggested, isopropyl alcohol DOES remove fresh Sharpie from clothing.
Bad News: It takes lots and lots of isopropyl alcohol and lots and lots of clean rags. And I had a cut on my finger.
Good News: Thanks to the leggings being dark blue, I think I got enough of the Sharpie out that it isn't too noticeable.
Bad News: While I was elbow deep in rubbing alcohol, Kate found a bottle of lotion that Claire had decided she no longer needed to keep in her backpack now that the dry winter air is gone.
Good News: Kate didn't get lotion ALL over the house.
Bad News: The cap WAS open and it was on her hands. And a little on her dress. And all around her mouth.
Good News: There was still lotion in the bottle, so she didn't drink all of it.
Bad News: I don't know how much lotion was in the bottle to begin with.
Good News: I now know how to call poison control.
Bad News: We were late to soccer practice.
Good News: It was "Mint Chocolate Chip" lotion, so Kate smells minty fresh now.
Bad News: The diarrhea she might get from potentially ingesting lotion will probably be not so minty fresh.
