It's nontoxic

Every year the beautiful wife and big sister color Easter eggs. It's always a big mess, therefore it's a lot of fun.
This year Little sister was big enough to help. Instead, she became the main attraction.
We got a new kind of dye and it's a good thing it is nontoxic -- though I guess you would expect that since you are coloring food.
At first it was just regular fun. Little and big sister dipped the eggs in the bowls of colored water and splashed them around some, turning them and turning them as they slowly changed colors.
But then Little sister decided she was bored and started splashing the water all over the table. It's just a good thing we had stripped her down to the diaper before we started.
We just laughed and smiled and took pictures when she waved her arms hysterically. We all turned our attention to big sister for a second to see what new creation she was coming up with. When we turned back Little sister had made the decision that not only was the dye fun to play with, it was good as a soup too.
She would stop and look to make sure we were watching and then take a big ole spoonful and shove it in her mouth.
The beautiful wife and grandpa, being the good parental types decided to taste it to see what it was like.
  • I was just glad it was nontoxic. I'll stick to eating the eggs.
