"On bright red days how good it feels to be a horse and kick my heels."
-My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss
I have two words.
Both ended up on various parts of the mall floor, school cafeteria table, boy's shirt, boy's shorts, boy's arm, my shorts and mall bathroom floor.
Did you know that ketchup is a good substitue for paint? My boy taught me that today in his sister's school cafeteria whilst I was busily bouncing baby on one knee while handing out the contents of three happy meals and breaking open two toys. (No, I didn't need my toy. Yet.) I look over and he is attentively fingerpainting the ketchup all over his arm. Luckily, I catch it before he gets it on his or my clothes. That happens later after he has it on his hands. But that's OK, because it matches perfectly with the dried blood from his bloody nose 2 hours earlier at the mall. Smart boy, he knows how to keep his colors matching. All I need now is some red dye and we'll have a brand new shirt.
Yes, there are many different colored days Dr. Seuss, and although there was no horses or kicking involved, ours was definitely a red day.
