When I got home last night from work then the gym (must sweat out frustrations), I announced that I was home and no one came up from the basement to greet me. So, I clomped down the stairs and I noticed that Alex had this red ring around his mouth, like a fruit juice mustache, but more on the bottom lip than the top. After wondering what he had gotten into, since he doesn't drink red juice and I had hid the markers, I hurried him up stairs, against his will so I could scrub his face clean. After much after much struggling and scrubbing, the red mustache was still there. I gave up and it was bed time.
Much to Alex's frustration, I scrubbed his face again this morning trying to get him clean...no such luck...he was pretty annoyed from all the face touching! At school drop off, I noticed a few kids also had the same red face epidemic, so I mentioned it to his teacher... She proceeds to inform me that in the dry weather the kids lick their lips and around their lips a lot and it tends to get chapped...
The moral of the story...the insistent scrubbing just made it worse...poor Alex is now miserable and I assumed he was just dirty!
On to big blue...and the awesomeness it possesses

So, I picked up this thick blue infinity scarf along with the sunglasses at Nordstrom's the other day...had a small gift card burning a whole in my pocket. Infinity scarves are wonderful...they are like a giant necklace that keeps you warm...The boys saw the scarf last night and proceeded to drag it around the floor saying it was Big Blue the snake then they wrapped around both of their necks at the same time and ran around screaming it was attacking them...ha!
Wonderful, it is snowing here today in Chicago...my drive home with Alex should be painfully long and slow...
Well, here's to a good weekend!
