I have been trying to keep food dyes out of my kids' diets. I didn't think about the markers. Annie eats the tip of a marker every time we get them out. What is it about them? Yes, and obviously this was after she painted her own face yellow. Love this kid. She keeps us on our toes. We think she's going to be just fine in life. She really takes care of herself. Last night, at 3:00 a.m. I found her in the fridge trying to get herself some milk. I used to get myself middle of the night snacks when I was her age. This is payback.
