This is one Facetime call that no mother ever wants to get! 

Mother Billie Fotheringham’s two-year-old son Kyle was playing with his three-year-old friend Leo, when the Scottish toddlers decided it was time for mischief, covering themselves in a bottle of self-tanning lotion. 

Billie told Radio.com that she just couldn't stop laughing when she saw the empty bottle of fake tanner. 

"I could not believe my eyes," says Billie. "I thought they had hurt themselves or something. When I went in and seen the orange from head to toe all I could do was scream! I couldn't do anything but laugh. I had tears streaming down my face. The boys were standing there in shock looking as if butter wouldn't melt."

As funny as it is, this story can serve as a sweet warning about keeping chemicals away from the reach of young children. Luckily, all Billie has to do now is get the boys just as excited for bath-time.

"If I knew the fake tan bottle was in the hall unit," Billie admits, "then it would have been removed beforehand."

The young mother who has now gone viral is glad everyone thinks the video is hilarious and that many parents out there have been able to relate to her situation. 

While the tan may be fake, the fun those two had was definitely real!
