Flying Purple People Eater

Only a mother could love a face like this, don't you agree?

No... he is not a clown, and I did not do this on purpose. Long story short, Owen is taking some medication that (you guessed it) makes his face purple! I wish I could say it looks better in person, but it doesn't. I've tried to stay home as much as possible, but yesterday I had to venture out into the world. It's amazing the responses you get from people. While I was at the grocery store, several people felt the need to point out that my baby's face was purple. I felt like responding "DUH!" Do you honestly think I could miss it? Some people just stare. One nice woman was worried that Owen wasn't breathing. And then there's Gavin. Yesterday I asked Gavin to give the baby a kiss yesterday. As he goes in, he sees the purple, said "Ewww" and backed away. Now he just points at O, and says "Yucky." Luckily, I only have to give Owen this treatment for 3 or 4 days, and they say the stain should only last a week or two.

Let's just hope this works... otherwise I don't know what I'll try next.

Oh my gosh, look at that face! I think when you go out in public and people comment, you should pretend that his face isn't purple - ask what's wrong with their eyes? Send people flocking to the eye doctor...

Cute blog! Glad to see someone else join the ranks!
