Greasy Jack... and no, I'm not talking about the burger.

Sometimes you just have to laugh and go get the camera!
Jackson was out of my sight for about 2 minutes. I was trying to pick out something to wear and when I came out of my closet Jack had just walked in our room. He looked up at me and said "paint." It took a second for my mind to register what I was looking at. I kept saying "oh no, oh no,oh no,oh no." I ran for my camera, he didn't want to pose for me but I got a few. The pictures do not convey the mess people. He was covered, head to toe, in Vaseline.

My little mess maker!

After about 7 washes with dish soap and bar soap, I still had a greasy little man.

I decided to give up and go to town to buy some Dawn.

Luckily I was able to find a hat for him to wear to town. I didn't want anyone thinking I meant for him to look like that!

So I bought Dawn and washed his hair about 5 more times... didn't really work.
A friend posted on FaceBook that her friend had the same thing happen and she used baby oil to remove the Vaseline. I thought this is a crazy idea! How could oil remove grease?? Well folks, it does!! If you ever find yourself with a vaseline covered child, get out the baby oil and the dawn and go to work!

Oldies but goodies!
