Moment #111,446

My 18 month old daughter had just learned her colors. She decided purple was her favorite color and spent time every day pointing out things that were "poh-pol." One Sunday morning, as we were getting ready for church, I heard her in her play room yelling "poh-pol, poh-pol, poh-pol." When I made my way in there, I discovered she had colored her white sun dress purple with a marker! Clorox bleach came through and saved her Sunday's best.
