Today Teddy stayed home from school because he still wasn't feeling great--though he was much better than the day before--and this afternoon I asked if he could watch Pickle for ten minutes while I took a shower.
Just so you know how desperately I needed a shower--I'm writing this on Thursday and I hadn't taken a shower since Monday. Sorry to gross you out--this is just the way my life has been lately!
Anyway, I had been working on a painting--an OIL painting--and left the paints out, but Pickle knows full well not to touch them. I guess Teddy left the kitchen briefly to go to the bathroom and she must have made a beeline for them.
When I came back into the room I saw this:
Although I was upset, it's hard to get mad at a face this cute:
I also couldn't help but notice the really nice shade of orangey-red she had mixed...
Of course, she went straight into the tub where she practiced her mad face:
And her happy face:
I'm happy to say that somehow she came clean! Though I don't hold out much hope for her dress.
I asked her later why she did it and she said she wanted to be "sparkly."
