A few weeks ago Rush went to a super fun birthday party where they had cowboy hats AND a piñata.  Does life get much better than that??

Ruston hasn’t done many piñatas in his short life so I kept prepping him, telling him to try to get the candy off the ground as soon as the piñata broke.  So when the time came, he was totally ready and grabbed the first thing he could get his hands on.  In the chaos of kids, I saw Rushton fiddling with something for a few seconds and then he threw it on the ground and walked away.  When I saw him up close, his mouth was all black, and on the ground where he had been standing there was a black marker that had been snapped in half and the ink cylinder removed…

I did some quick math and came to the conclusion that he thought the marker was some kind of marker-shaped piñata candy, so he tried to open it by breaking it (rather than pulling off the lid??) and then he put the ink part in his mouth before he realized that it was indeed a MARKER.

A marker.  That he attemped to eat.


I have nothing more to say about that.
