I was sitting on the couch a few days ago talking with Eric. The children were all off playing and we were enjoying a few minutes of each other. All of a sudden, my “Mommy Radar” started beeping. I hear Joshua, (3) saying to Maryann(2) ” Do you want more skunk stripes?” I leap or more like fly off the couch since I can’t see what it is to be skunk stripped, and find Joshua with a set of paints “painting” or like he described it “Skunk Stripping” Maryann. She is happily standing there with her arms out in front of her as he adds some finishing touches on his masterpiece. She is now covered with blue and green (last time I checked our skunks were still black and white, but I guess white probley did not show up very well, hence the need to change to a new color!) paint up both arms and half of her face. I immediately ordered both of them to the kitchen, in which Joshua hung his head knowing he should not have painted his sister. I grabbed the camera and met them in the kitchen and by then both Eric and I were laughing so hard, we couldn’t even talk. Joshua quickly realized that his art was being throughly enjoyed by all now that the whole family had gathered to see what was going on. He was very proud to pose for some paparazzi with his Skunk Stripped Sister.
