This is what happens when I go outside to put the chickens away.
It's eyeliner, and she didn't realize that I was watching her. I think she was trying to wash it off. Or maybe I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt, and she was really just trying to further her mess making.

"Uh oh, mama."

This guy has no excuse. He has way too much fun being naughty with her.

Last week, I was folding laundry and Lilly took a (washable) marker to the carpet, her face, and her whole body. And the week before that, I was cooking dinner, and she found a paint (permanent) marker to color the carpet and desk with.

I'm beginning to think that I should avoid household chores.


  1. Hmmmm, not seeing much remorse in that "oooops, I've been caught" face. She surely loves to paint her face doesn't she? Remember the last time I was over & she had a green face & mouth? Have you considered leaving the pens out of her reach? Just a suggestion ;) ......

    1. The problem is that B&G leave markers out. And no matter how high I put the pens, she climbs until she can reach them. The eyeliner is my fault, although she did go under the sink, and into my zipped makeup bag to get it.
