Did anyone happen to see that crazy lady in the back of an SUV painting her kids' faces in the Ta*rget parking lot this afternoon? Yeah, well, that was me. We went to the zoo this morning and Leila really wanted to get her face painted, but I knew we had an event tonight and it would probably be a smeary mess by then. So I promised that I would paint their faces this afternoon. I had hired a face painter once for one of Leila's birthday parties who told me that it was perfectly safe to use acrylic craft paint. So, while Mia was napping, I gathered my paints and brushes and was ready to go. Suddenly, however, I got concerned that maybe I had been misinformed, so I searched the Internet to find out if craft paints are, indeed, safe for face painting. Turns out, everything I read highly discouraged it. So, now I am scrambling to keep my promise and am searching the Internet to find anyplace that sells face paint. (With little time to spare, I might add.) So yes, Leila and Mia got their faces painted. And yes, it was on the tailgate of my SUV in a very crowded parking lot. And yes, I am one crazy lady. A promise is a promise, after all.
Here are some pics from tonight's Marshall University event. Mia was terrified of Marco the Bull. TERRIFIED. In the photo with Nolan holding her, she has a sad face because of Marco. "No want to see bear. I 'cared (scared)."
