And A Happy Monday Morning to you as well, sir

Oh dear sweet three-and-a-half-year-old Henry,

the question is not
what did you use
to make your precious handprints
all over my bathroom mirror.
What didn’t you use?

    How fun! My son did the exact same thing when he was two with a tub full of Eucerin cream (not the easily cleanable lotion, but the thick, sticky cream). It was days before there was no discernible trace of it on the mirror. Do tell, what items did Henry use for his masterpiece?

    First of all, Henry can't possibly be 3 1/2. And, second: What? No pictures?

  3. It wasn't too bad — just four, nicely spaced and perfectly placed prints.

    It looks like he used hand soap with a little face soap (and possibly toothpaste?) for good measure.

    Just found your blog. Love it! I'm a Catholic mom of 3 boys ages 11 months, 3 and 5. The 5 yr old even studies Tang Soo Do (Chuck Norris' martial art)! Testosterhome. Yep, that's where I live, too.
