Mistaken identity

I just found Missy blog "It's Almost Naptime." She has the funniest post RIGHT HERE.

It got me to thinking about a case of mistaken identity that happened several years ago here. Daisy was about 3 and she wanted some lotion on her feet. So she carried a tube in to her daddy. He assumed that she knew what it was, and so just applied it to her feet.

A few minutes later she came to me, horrified, because the skin was peeling off her feet.

It didn't hurt, but she was sure that it wasn't supposed to happen that way.

Daisy, being 3, couldn't read and thought it was lotion. Her daddy didn't bother to read it but probably wouldn't have known what a "peel off mask" was anyway.

I don't think they teach that in auto mechanics.
