Parenting Fail

Do you see that orange mark on Miller's face? (sorry for the blurry pics)

That my friends is self tanner.  St. Tropez bronzing mousse to be exact.   I have an event tonight that requires me to wear a dress so last night I showered and then slathered myself in self tanner before bed, probably around 10pm. 

Well around midnight Miller woke up screaming and crying so I went into his room and picked him up,  laid him on my chest until he fell asleep again and just rocked him. (I had a tank top on but it was low cut so his head was mostly on my chest,) Well I fell asleep too so he probably ended up sleeping on my chest for about an hour or so.  I woke up put him back in the crib and went to bed. 

It wasn't until this morning when Kyle and I were sitting with him at breakfast that I was like "What is that orange patch on his face?!!"  Kyle was like I don't know, and didn't really seem to care until it suddenly came to me that I had put on self tanner and then laid him on my chest!

So Miller now has an attractive patch of self tanner on his face.  I tried to wash it off but it doesn't look like it's coming off.  Whoops!! 

So that my friends is my winning parenting moment of the week.  Thankfully we don't have anywhere special to be this weekend where people might ask about the tan patch.  

TGIF!! Hope you all have a good weekend!
