A "Washable" Disclosure

On any brand of kid's paint, the heavily optimistic words, WASHABLE!!!! should be lawfully encased in quotation marks. In big, bold, neon ones. In theory, everything is "washable," and that does not necessarily mean "cleanable."

If "washable" were the case, I would not have a child covered in blue paint, slightly faded (after 55 minutes in the tub) to look like bruises. I think I am going to have to keep him home from school this week lest a teacher see these splotches and send his file to DHS.

At least Darling Husband has a handmade Valentine to look forward to, even if it is all blue and layered so thick it will take 2 weeks to dry.
