Maybe it is because of the stripes and the unhappy expression on her face, but I think this picture of Anna June looks like a mug shot. Except she wasn't the one in trouble -- her parents were.
Her new teacher, a nurse, was concerned about the huge red spots on AJ's face on Friday morning. We had tried to give her a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, but she had a complete meltdown because I missed a spot or two with the cream cheese. So I tried again, giving her some kiddie yogurt (a terrible concoction of a blue "cotton candy" flavor and red "cherry). After she finished, I washed her hands and face in the kitchen sink, as always. I wiped her with a paper towel. The mark on her still-baby-sensitive skin was from the rough paper towel, or the red dye in the yogurt.
We've decided to only give her more naturally-colored yogurt in the future, and to try to avoid wiping her with cheap paper towels. But Friday morning, there was a lot of concern from her teacher (and her poor daddy, who got stuck taking her to school in the first place).
It went away, and she is fine. I'll keep an eye out in the future to see if she has any further reactions.
