Powder Puff Boys

Powder white skin is fine....but not if your kids are half Mexican!

So it was instantly upon seeing Avery's hair as he peeked around the corner at me that I knew something was amis. ....Or better yet....amess.

Yes indeed, 22oz of powder might be the cheapest bulk size to buy.....but it sure is no fun to clean up. These poor Texas kids missed snow, so they thought they would create their own from the top bunk...shaking every last microscopic flec into the atmosphere of their bedroom. If you notice that hazy look to Avery's photo above....that is not a blurry shot, nor is it a neat Photoshop it is simply powder laced AIR. I had to open all the windows, turn on the fan and the air purifier for 24 hours before it was even livable in there again!

It was just one of those moments where scolding was take pictures was the only thing to do....because the prospect of just how to clean the room was enough to zap all energy as I entered the room. Oh, and be assured, while Avery is covered in the most powder, it was big brother Donovan who climbed up into the (formerly sacred and childproof) top shelf of the closet and handed down the bottle of powder.

Oh, I know what you mean about powder laced air. I'm guessing there is still a film that settles everyday on everything. We had a similar experience at our house when I left Grace and Jack to enjoy making cornmeal pies years the house. What was I thinking?? Jack decided to pour his pie down the heating venting, and for the rest of the winter we enjoyed cornmeal snow in the playroom every time the heat kicked in!

You have to give them credit...those two of yours are constantly being creative. :)
