Take a look at Drew's new tattoo! You can see in the picture below the results from our trip to the tattoo parlor last week. Drew got a green Chinese character tattoo on his left shoulder.
This tattoo is the Chinese character for "Cochlear Implant", and we decided to give it to him to celebrate the success he has had so far with his bilaterals. Don't you think it looks great?
Ok, now that I've had my fun, I'll confess that this is not a tattoo, but rather marker that his sister thought would look good on him.
Several days before, Drew's sister had colored her whole foot green (ala "The Hulk"), and I told her that she was not allowed to color her skin.
Being the precious little girl she is, when I walked into the basement and saw her holding the green marker I said "Did you color on yourself again"?
"No, daddy, I did not. I color Drew's back."
What can you do? Technically she had followed my instructions. She got new instructions to not color on ANYONES body (including the dog, other animals, or extraterrestrial creatures) and the marker was put away.
And now Drew has his "tattoo" (until we wash it off).
