284: What I won’t do for my kids…..


284: What I won’t do for my kids…..

Or perhaps a better title would be …..”be careful what you say in front of  your kids” …..or  “my inner Gene Simmons” …..”paint your eyes like an Egyptian

So the story goes briefly something like this….my 13 year old daughter wanted to do my wife’s eyes in some new makeup techniques for practice, and Linda didn’t want to that night, but I piped up … “oh you can do my eyes some time, honey”  which I didn’t actually do that night, but thought “what harm can it do?” and “just to entertain my daughter”   and I think the beginning of this video is so cool (if you watch  this video, really watch the lead singer’s eyes closely  at 00:52 to see my favorite part of this video!)

Anyway here is her handiwork….and a very silly me……

Not my usual post, huh?

All of the things I previously promised relating more to my usual Blue Nickel posts are still forthcoming.   We just got back from Disneyland,  so I also have a bunch of pictures to post from that as well….but I thought I would pop out this quick post just so you wouldn’t forget me….my March postings have been minimal, and I am, as usual, behind in almost every area of my real and virtual life…

Also here is more info on Modern Relief Japan….my quilt (or quilts as it may turn out) will be viewed on line sometime in May I believe….I will keep you posted!!

For the rest of my day today I am working on my second Moda Bake Shop recipe which is extremely overdue (and I have two more waiting in the wings!) amongst other things….so hope you enjoyed today’s silliness…..

Rock on,

  • I love this post! Since we have 2 girls (now 12 & 14) we also have pictures similar to this. Well, actually far worse! It made my husband wonder why any woman would wear make-up! LOL! Then there was the time they painted his toenails. And he forgot. And he wore flip flops to the front door of a motorcycle riding buddy’s house. Who noticed the nails. Thankfully he’s also a dad of girls & understood. Favorite, though, are pictures we have of the girls grandpa all decorated when they were little. We lost him a few years ago and those are treasured memories.
