Purple tattoos

Mackenzie: "Mommy! I have a purple tatttoo!!!"
Me: "Let me see!" (Thinking...sweet Jesus please say she did not get into any pens, markers, etc... AGAIN)

Mackenzie whips out her arm, pushes up her sleeve and shows me her wrist.
Me: (laughing) "Oh. Yeah. That does look kind of like a tattoo but it's a vein. It's part of your body."

Mackenzie: (clearly uninterested in my boring answer) "Mommy let me see your arm."
I show her my arm.
Mackenzie: "Mommy YOU have a purple tattoo too!!!"

Isn't it amazing how exciting innocence can be? My daughter is 4 and just learned that we have two "hoses" that go from our mouths to our tummies: one for air and one for food. Its important to not put food or water in our air hose! :)
