The other day I found Olivia in the kitchen demolishing an art project she did during storytime at the library. It was a picture of a sheep that she glued cotton balls to. No big deal. Then she turns around and this is what I see.
Apparently the glue is still slightly sticky and Olivia has decided to adhere them to her face. I ask her what she is doing and she replies, "Coo coo." For those of you who are familiar with Sesame Street, Bert has a pet pigeon Berniece and Olivia does a pretty darn good pigeon impression. Why she thinks that cotton balls under the eyes necessitates cooing like a pigeon I'll never know. Maybe the cotton balls are her feathers?
This is what happens when she is left to play with what I thought was a dried out marker. I guess she re-hydrated it with her spit?
This morning I had Olivia help me decorate Christmas cookies. I even gave her one cookie and some leftover icing to decorate the cookie all by herself. She did very well at first, spreading the icing very carefully.Then she decided to try some of the icing.
Let's add some sprinkles. She was actually pressing her face to the plate so the sprinkles would stick to the icing.
She even had icing and sprinkles in her hair. Into the tub we go! About an hour later, she asks for a snack. I give her a Shrek gogurt and she heads into the living room to watch something or other. I'm loading the dishwasher when she marches into the kitchen.
"Oh my goodness!" Back to the tub. I should have known something was up when she was so quiet out there! This is her new thing. Rubbing food in her hair so she can get a bath. Pretty sneaky sis!
