Evergreen

Evergreen....

Jolly Green Giant...

Green green grass of home...

Green backs...

Go green...

Green and Gold...

Hmm, sense a theme going on here? I just got back from a trip I took to the big town. Time for major supplies and shopping. Thank goodness for a Suburban. I even had a prehung door in there!

So, after driving nearly 5 hours in negative temps and snow we were about 10 miles from being home when I hear Little Man shaking what sounds like my gum. I asked my middle son how he got the gum and he said he put my purse in the middle seat. Urg. Well I asked him to get the gum away from his brother. I turned on the light for him and I hear him shout....

"Ahh, he is GREEN!"

"What?" I say.

"He is green."

"WHAT are you talking about?" I say, getting impatient.

"His hands are green, his face is green."

"WHAT?!"

"Mom, this toy is green and these straws are green. Everything is GREEN"

"OH NO!!!!!!" I say as I put the pieces together.....


Earlier in the day I had gone shopping for a small container of craft paint at Micheals. After I checked out I said no bag was necessary, I'd just pop it in my purse.

My purse.

Little Man had my purse for how many miles????

He had green on his hands, green on his cheeks, green all over his sweetshirt, green on the carseat... and green on the seat.

I would have gotten pictures to share but after driving in such horrible and stressful conditions, it wasn't the best way to end a trip.

But don't worry. No one is green any more!

Oh my gosh!! LOL, I would have been freaking out too.

Did it all come off easily?

Darcie said...

OK...trying not to laugh, because I know at that moment it would have NOT been funny. However I am so proud of the little guy...what a way to GO GREEN...he took it to whole new level.

Oh yikes! I'm hoping it was washable paint.

Hilarious! We've not had paint all over the van.. but we had an eposide with stamp pads all over faces/arms/legs this wk end! (I wish now I would have grabbed some pictures, but I was more concerned to get the ink off before mtg!)

I am "GREEN" with envy that I wasn't there to see his face and your face when you saw his face!!!

Oh my! LOL Sorry I couldn't help it! Good thing for soap and water huh?

Tutus and Choo-Choos said...

Sorry, but I had to laugh. I know at the time it wasn't funny, but it will be later when you look back upon it.

oh, my, goodness! This sounds like a good one for "don't get mad, take pictures"! What a mess!

carrielt said...

The mess not so funny, but how freaking cute is that! You have your own little kermit the frog.

And Miss Carin what are you doing visiting my blog at 4:00 in the morning. Don't you ever sleep? :)

Oh my... Carin, who needs pictures? You tell it all so well. You say no one is green... here's hoping the van and car seat suffered no lasting effects, either.

Cara and Jenn said...

good grief. I can honestly say I am not green with envy. Sorry couldn't resist!!

Alison said...

Oh Carin! The joys of motherhood huh? I know that it would have NOT been funny during the time but now you can laugh about it. That's great!

Dear Grrrrrrrrr-een,
Sorry! Our last one was coloring the floor and fridge with indelible ink. Turns out fingernail polish remover takes most of it out. Hope the clean-up wasn't too tragic.
Love,
