The cop's wife was not happy.

Last night with Téa having a mustache….

It reminded Dennis of something that happened many years ago when he was on the police force. One
of his fellow cops had just become a new Dad. This Dad thought he would play a trick on his wife. So
one day he took a Sharpie and painted a mustache on their baby girl. Problem was the ink would not
come off even with all the washing he tried. Finally it took a full 2 months or more for that thing to fade
away! His wife was NOT happy about it.

I keep thinking of the sweet newborn pictures they all missed out on.
After all, this was in the early 1970s, long before photo shop.

I would have been upset with that husband! So, my question is why does Téa have the mustache? Hopefully it won't take a couple of months to get washed off :-)

I don't know that answer. I keep forgetting to ask them! I think it's just a little decal that can be peeled off. No Sharpie for her.

For future reference: to remove sharpie permanent marker use SPF sport spray. It cleaned my faux suede ivory colored recliner when my grand attempted to "tattoo" himself. It also cleaned the walls of a friends house when her daughter attempted to create art. Of course we didn't concern ourselves with SPF and too much sun in the 70's!
