The Adventures of Curious Silas

It's Christmas Eve, about an hour before we have to load up to go to church. Silas is still napping...or so we think. I go in to check on him and maybe wake him up because this has been an abnormally long nap.

This is how I find him. No, it's not blood.
It's a ENTIRE tube of red lipstick!

He had been sleeping in a closet big enough for the pack & play and there was a shelf low enough for him to reach. Apparently there was an old make-up bag on that shelf and he just HAD to know what was inside!
Believe it or not, except for just a few places, it all washed out of his blanket and lovies.

This is after we wiped him down a bit. I was preparing a bath and running around like crazy since we were short on time.

Y'all. He had it e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. (well, everywhere that wasn't covered by clothes or a paci!) I was still getting it out of his ears on New Years Day. Thankfully it didn't stain his skin and we were able to get most of it off fairly quickly with some make-up remover.
I was laughing so hard when I brought him in the kitchen to show everyone that I freaked him out and that is why he has tears in that first picture. It was so funny! I love my little curious boy. :)

Thanks for joining us for another episode of The Adventures of Curious Silas!


  1. WOW...he DID get himself good didn't he?? Haha!!

  2. That is incredible. How did he get it on himself so fully and evenly?? It looks like a red version of William Wallace. What a cutie!

  3. can't stop laughing. Boys will be boys (even when they're playing with girl stuff)


You know what to do!
