.........she went shopping with DH last night, and managed to flutter her eyelashes at him and con persuade him into buying her some fake tan.

she decided tho to wack it on her legs herself, without listening to me and my advice, as the time I used fake tan was when I was a teen, and times (plus fake tans) have changed since then, and I am too old to understand.


thanks for that DD1, nice to be told I am old.


she has just come home from school, she has streaky legs, orange hands, and is a tad miffed that I am laughing very loudly at her.

I am not saying I told you so at all!

she has cheered my day up no end tho

Don't blame you. I hope that she's going to heed your advice now.

psychomum5 Tue 09-Jun-09 15:26:58

nah, she is 15, she will forget that I am right about some stuff by next week.

she bought some hair removing cream a month or so ago, I was right about that smelling like cats piss, she seems to have forgotten that advice too....

lol, aw poor thing. not only does she have to contend with the shame of the orange hands but also that you were right. I'm not really sat here chuckling. wink

Poor little love - orange AND your Mums right! (really trying hard not to laugh... not suceeding!)

ChippingIn Tue 09-Jun-09 21:45:22

blush not to have taken a photo already!

psychomum5 Tue 09-Jun-09 21:51:13

oooh yes, a photo would be a very good plan.

<<ponders how to get her to pose when I am laughing at herhmm>>

SarahL2 Tue 09-Jun-09 21:55:09

I'm afraid I would be laughing too.

Apparently, toothpaste gets it off your hands if you fancy helping her out.

I'd be tempted to leave it though [evil snigger] grin

psychomum5 Tue 09-Jun-09 22:04:40

does it really??

I --won;t-- might inform her.

my youngest dd apperead with orange arm splodges - she had nipped into big sisters room and tryed some of the cream on her dressing table, rubbed a little here and there on her arm. Not knowing that it was fake tan cream and the following day wondering why she had orange slodges up her arm grin

<<snigger>> @ splodges

My DH did this a while back, looking for moisturiser in the bathroom.

Except he had a wank.
Wasnt just his hands that were orange!! gringringrin.

ROFL Betty. Is that true? Either way tis v funny.

pjmama Wed 10-Jun-09 08:37:57

Laughing at teenagers antics is our way of getting them back for all the sleepless nights when they were little!

Saying that, I ended up with streaks and orange hands first time I tried fake tan. I think I was about 32... My DH laughed like a drain of course. blush

liahgen Wed 10-Jun-09 08:43:23

hey psycho my dd has just done exactly the same.

Listened to my threats of orange steaky not evenly applied fake tan and moisturised and exfoliated well.

Came downstairs this morning showing me her bright orange palms.

Hilarious, (well I thought so, she wasn't laughing quite as much as me, hmm )

psychomum5 Wed 10-Jun-09 09:08:55

<<snort>> @ bettys DH. did he think that he had some terrible disease first tho....

liaghen, they really don;t appreciate us laughing do theyhmm.

BettySwollux Wed 10-Jun-09 22:03:45

Yep, tis true. I was unable to speak for laughing for a very long time.

Now when he wants moisturiser (even just for his hands wink) he double checks with me.
"Why is the bottle brown if its just moisturiser?" while eyeing me very suspiciously.

"Cos its cocoa butter dear, now let me go back to sleep!"
