Twins

On Monday, upon picking up my boys from day camp, the counselor said, "Tomorrow is Twin Day".

Why O' why do I do this to myself?

My kids have matching clothes.  No problem.  We could figure something out.

No, not this momma.  Not this crazy momma.

And when I say crazy, I mean stay up all night to paint at 2:50 AM!

We thought Thing 1 and Thing 2 would be perfect.  I ran to the store and picked up some red t-shirts, white and black fabric paint.

But more on that later, because what is a Thing without blue hair?

Why it is a thing not at all.
Sally Beauty encouraged me to buy Shocking Blue temporary dye.

I sat the boys down, stained my white toilet seat, and gave my boys blue hair.
This momma doesn't need no girls...the boyz have the style!
And as my boys slumbered.

I painted.

And painted.

I used the ole' freezer paper method.  But then thought I'd just freehand the words with the black metallic paint I had.  Big old mistake.

I should not, would not, could not use that paint at 3 o'clock in the morning.

Hey, I did use that paint in the morning and it did not dry by 8 o'clock in the morning.

I should not, could not, would not send two Things to camp with wet shirts.

I did send two Things to camp with wet shirts.

They only wanted to play.  That is all those things wanted to do.

Hysterical! BTW...you could have dried the paint with a hair dryer.

Thanks, Dahara! I hair dryer'd and fan'd the shirts before they went out the door. Still, much too wet to dry all the way through.
