Vaseline face

A couple weeks ago Will had a cold. A runny nose combined with the cold, dry weather meant the skin on his face got really dry and chapped. So a couple of times we put vaseline on the chapped skin before bed. Apparently it helped a lot because Will really liked it. He would say, "More. More. More." softly until all the chapped skin was covered. Then he would say, "That nice." (It was really freaking cute.)

Fast forward to today. He's long over the cold, but apparently he remembers how nice the vaseline felt because he found it and got into it.

The best part was when Brian brought him to show me I said, "Oh, Will." and he got the saddest, most heartbreaking look on his face. I think he thought we were mad at him.

Here he is with his shiny face. And hand.

Gobs of vaseline in his hair and on his ear.

It was pretty awesome.


  1. Adorable! Although that had to take some time to clean off.

  2. Ha! I am highly amused. He will have smooth skin for a long time now.

  3. Vaseline is a pain in the CAN to get out/off anything. However, he will be highly moisturized probably through next winter. Heh.

  4. Oh man, Amelia got in to the Vaseline a couple times and it is HARD to get off stuff. You're a good Mom for not getting mad!

  5. We were lucky that he didn't touch anything except his face.

  6. I like how the "best part" was a heartbreakeningly sad face. JK I get what you mean. That's pretty adorable.

  7. I had a friend's kids get into vaseline during a playgroup - he got it all over himself AND the bedspread and walls and mirror... I think you guys got off pretty easy with Will :)
