Emma and the Green paint

I had been looking forward to Friday evening for a few days.  The girls were at a youth conference all weekend and Paul and Sam had gone hunting, so it was just going to be Emma, Ben and I.  Ben wanted to do something special because he couldn't go hunting, so we went to Chick a lay and then to Walmart to buy candy.  I was planning on letting the kids watch a few cartoons while I sewed and then I was going to put them to bed so I could finish sewing.
I was getting my sewing stuff ready when I heard Ben.  "MOM!  LOOK WHAT EMMA DID!"  I knew immediately it was not going to be good, and it wasn't. 

 Earlier that day, I had bought a tube of paint.  It had fallen out of the bag in the van so I just threw it in the diaper bag so it wouldn't get left in the van.  I had forgotten about this and didn't notice it in the diaper bag which had been left in the living room.
 It was in a tube like lotion.  Emma loves putting on lotion.  I am assuming she thought she was putting on lotion.  Green lotion.
 She did a pretty good job covering herself.  And the couch.
 I picked her up under her arms and carried her like that to the bathroom where I put her in the tub.  She thought the whole ordeal was fun!
 The water turned green which just added to the excitement.  Ben couldn't stand it and had to get in the green tub also.  Thankfully, it was Crayola washable paint and came right off.  Even the couch.
 And Emma was as good as new.
Needless to say, after all that excitement, I didn't get much sewing done at all.
