Mystery Substance

"Oh no!" The Rock Star cried. "Matthew is covered in _________! You'd better come see this!"

It was in his hair, on his face, all over his clothes and...well...caked into the carpet and various crevasses on multiple toys.He'd been upstairs, playing. I heard him squealing and bumping around and assumed--wrongly--that he was simply entertaining himself in the playroom. Well, no, wait. He was entertaining himself in the playroom.
Troy busied himself cleaning the floor and the toys. I busied myself cleaning the child. We thanked Garrett for bringing it to our attention before it got any worse. Although, honestly, I don't know that it could have gotten any worse.

So. Any guesses? What mystery substance do you think my son is coated in?

  1. Just be glad he didn't get into the powder too!

  2. Since the guesses thus far have been overwhelmingly in favor of Desitin or some other diaper rash goop, I will let you all know that it is not something used on a baby's bottom. At least, not until I tried to take Matthew's clothes off and a bunch of it smeared there.

  3. Shaving Cream. Based on the way that he has it smeared all over his face.

  4. Jer's guess is toothpaste, mine is lotion.

  6. Diaper cream. I'm going with diaper cream.

  7. I thought toothpaste at first...but it doesn't look thick enough, then I thought maybe diaper cream too, like everyone above. Could be sunscreen too, has that thickness like the higher SPF stuff sometimes does.
