big fat mexican droopy one and a poncho. Or if theyre a good sleeper you could do a lovely designer stubble with a gentle babbing of the mascara wand and voila - baby phil mitchell.

OMG.

This is what happens when you have your children in a forrin cuntry. You miss the cultural references that are common at home.

Why did no one tell me.

And is it too late to do this to my almost 9yo DD?

Love it! Eyeliner defintely best thing to use and agree that when they can sit up - best for pics. Cat nose and whiskers also works well I've found. Please post pics when you do it!

ROFL at Vezzie grin

I've never thought of drawing a tache on either of the DCs but I really want to now. Should I discuss it with DH or just go for it?

I once saw a baby with drawn on eyebrows

Really badly drawn as well.

Can you not just balance a slug?

Just give them caviar to eat. The resultant smearing should produce a nice layered effect.

Id really like to draw a tache and sideburns onto my 15yo when he's sleeping. Just to see how long it takes him to notice! grin

Hilarious - this has made my night

I am SO doing this to DS2 (15 weeks) on the weekend. But think I'll use a stick on one. DS1's birthday party. Pirate theme. Genius.

my first ever ROFL grin grin grin

Best thread title ever!

PerArduaAdNauseum Thu 17-Mar-11 22:50:15

I'm so tempted to creep into DS's bedroom now. But he's 7. And has a cold. [disappointed]

StayFrosty Thu 17-Mar-11 22:53:38

Lol at vezzie.

I stuck a sticker one on my ds aged 4 weeks 5 days. I may provide photographic evidence as long as no one grasses me up to social services otherwise i shall deny all knowledge and claim my account was hacked

vmcd28 Thu 17-Mar-11 22:56:24

Another mum who's going to do this to ds2, 17wo at the weekend. Ds1 has missed out, he's 6yo. He'd enjoy moustache painting, there's no point. Booo.

Whenever the HV isn't coming out the next day

Honeydragon Thu 17-Mar-11 23:01:39

I tell what not to do the day before the HV comes Stealth and that's immac your babies head blush, thank heavens for hats. No one has ever let me forget I balded the baby.

Had to check on acronyms for ROFL.
Glad I did - it applies to me.
Thank you grin grin

6 days and not a moment sooner.

When I needed cheering up I used to like brushing DSs newborn baby hair into a centre parting.

It works with cats and dogs too, if their fur is long enough.
