We had the kid's school carnival. Always a good time, of course. It's nice to catch up with the parents that I used to see on a regular basis at the pool but now haven't seen in a month or so. One of the booths was doing face painting and hair coloring. I was against this, not just to be the fun police, but because we've been down this road before, and the hair coloring lasts approx. 68 seconds before Owen starts sweating and it's suddenly all over his clothes, his face, in his eyes, etc. Naturally I was overruled. So be it. I'll just be thankful the child is old enough to bathe himself.
