While we have been assured that this little girl does, in fact, love this cat, the picture makes it hard to tell. The mom tried to run and brush her teeth while the girl was playing in her room, and she came back to find this.
The little one just really wanted the cat to be inside the little duckie box. As soon as the mom got the cat out, the girl immediately tried to put it back inside. Was this some form of protection? Hardly – a nine-month-old isn’t going to understand that sort of thing. She was just doing whatever.
We're Sort of Impressed
Kids drawing on the walls of their homes is a tradition as old as time. Those cave drawings scientists get so worked up about? It was the kids. You'll just have to trust us on this one. This bit of artistry leaves us a little shocked at the skill.
There are a couple of Toads from the Mario series of games, there's what appears to be a Pikachu in the upper right, and there's quite a lot of detail in the other drawings, even if we don't know exactly what they are. Sure, somebody still had to clean it off, but there's a bright future there.
Time for Some Public Shaming
So your little guy gets into the markers and starts decorating the only canvas that he has easy access to – himself. Let no bit of skin be unmarked, he says, and from the head all the way up to the neck (and beyond), pretty much everything is covered. What to do? Well, the only solution for this little Dennis the Menace lookalike is to take him outside (clothed, of course), and show off the coverage.
The kid clearly doesn't care, might as well make some memories. This is the kind of picture that's going to show up on the wedding roll for everyone to laugh at. Maybe even the kid himself, if he turns out all right.
Go On and Get Them Muddy
Most parents these days don't want to even think about their kids playing in the mud like this one is. However, some studies have shown that kids who get dirty in such a way actually have stronger immune systems as they grow up – is it from the germs and organisms in the dirt, or is it all that good outdoor air and sunshine?
Of course, one way or the other this means a lot of cleaning once the fun is over. And just make sure he doesn't bring in any creepy crawlies once the parents get him inside.
Dressing Like Her Favorite
Kids love pretending to be their favorite cartoon characters. Tow Mater, Superman, Donald Duck – there are plenty to choose from. This little one decided that she wanted to be just like Peppa Pig, and she certainly has the proper color for the part. We aren't sure exactly what happened, but it looks like she might have gotten into some of Mom's makeup.
Maybe she had some arts and craft supplies that she realized would help her. It doesn't matter how it happened – this girl is ready for the live-action auditions.
