An Innie and an Outie



Spur of the moment silly is my favourite kind. During one particularly giggly evening, our family was surmising that none of our tummy buttons looked even remotely related. Without further ado, Mr Myrtleandeunice emerged from his shed with empty yoghurt containers and mould-making paraphernalia. A couple of tickly tummies posed to make their mark.

It was late in the night when the plaster moulds were unveiled and the following morning when the kids ooh-ed and aah-ed over their creations. With bemusement I overheard my son ask his sister: "which one is mine?"

Note: I was going to describe how you could Make Your Own Plaster Tummy Button Moulds. Then I decided that was just plain weird.

I love the belly button copies! So much more interseting than the hands-in-plaster thing.

I love them so much! They're archetypes. Now, I really need to add that to the to-do list.
