Baby Smurf

These small footprints are not difficult to track to the drawer where I keep (used to keep) my powdered concentrated food coloring. Saraphina asked her mama to scramble her an egg for dinner. After a few seconds at the stove, Kris turned to see Saraphina fingerpainting in food coloring on the floor. She had blue feet, blue hands, blue legs, etc.

Worried that the color blue would spread throughout the house, I began cleaning before I grabbed my camera. The trail of baby footprints was followed by a trail of mama footprints when Kris chased Saraphina across the kitchen towards the footwashing sink.

By the time this event was over, we all had blue feet, blue hands, and smudges of blue on our clothing.
