Last week, Jackson had a school picnic for all the Kindergarten classes. Pizza, hot dogs, popsicles, hula hoops, bubbles, etc. Oh, and Face Painting.
The line was so long so I offered to help. In my head - - How hard can it be? Plus, I have a Masters in Painting, for crying out loud.
Bite my tongue, I should have.
There's a reason people get paid to paint faces. It's actually not that easy. Add a hot, sweaty, squirming kid who doesn't want their face touched, and well....
I did a Pirate (sad), a SpiderMan (passable) and some flower/butterflys (OK) on girls. Then I tried to do a Black Kitty for Cade. (Cue the sad trombone).
He didn't seem fazed, and it was a struggle to convince him to wash his face before going to bed.
