Desert Boy has been having fun lately. He can skedaddle under a fence faster than you can say skedaddle, and if he sees Henry go somewhere, he wants to go, too. Never mind if it's into a horse corral full of big horse turds. Or through a cold, muddy puddle. They're buddies, and Desert Boy is ready to explore.

Sometimes Desert Boy has to be inside, but he still finds ways to have fun. Like grabbing a permanent marker and drawing all over his face. When I saw him, I inwardly groaned and laughed at the same time. And then I grabbed my camera.

Here's a better view of Desert Boy's artwork. I hope he doesn't decide he needs lots of tattoos later in life--especially on his face.

Eating is always an adventure, and one day the pudding was just too much fun. Desert Boy quickly tired of using a spoon and tossed it on the floor. Then he grabbed the container and started slurping away, with the expected results. He was happy to pose for pictures with his new look.

Life is never boring with a toddler around!

He is such a cutie - pudding, tats and all!

Judging from his self-administered facial tattoo, I'm guessing he's right handed.

Parenthood is sooo much fun! Each day is an adventure. I remember those days very well, and miss them too.


Now back to my on-line traffic school. Sigh.

It looks like he's wearing the same shirt for both his pudding adventures and "tat" fun. You either had one busy clean up day, or he is inspired by his cute blue shirt!

Desert Boy's blue shirt will probably never be quite the same--he was wearing it for both the tat fun and the pudding. And he does appear to be right-handed, although he can throw rocks pretty well with his left hand, too!

Aha! You have the makings of a switch pitcher on your hands, and his initials even back it up! We'll have to start calling him 'Wild Thing'
