What a fun filled day Cupcake and I had. But first I need to give you a bit of a back story. Cupcake doesn’t always go to sleep when we put her down at night. Usually she brings all her toys in her bed plays awhile, then falls asleep. Sometimes she ends up with a ball on her head. Sometimes there are so many toys there’s no room for her. Sometimes her blankie doesn’t make it back to the bed and she wakes up in the middle of the night in a panic when she can’t find it. So I’ve gotten into the habit of checking on her before I go to bed. So Monday night I am elbow deep in royal icing while I listen to shuffling sounds on the monitor, but nothing too alarming. She did say the word diaper at some point and I panicked a little as she was wearing a nightgown for the first time and her nighttime cloth is hook and loop closure (which she can remove if she wants to) but I also knew her baby was in her bed with her and she likes to pretend to change baby’s diaper.
So I head up after two hours of cookie decorating and go straight to bed. And then I realize I haven’t checked on Cupcake. I peek into her room to find her passed out (so cute!) with a tub of coconut oil!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhh!!!!!!!! OK, so if you’ve never used coconut oil you may not know that when it gets warm it melts. See above were she was wearing a nightgown? Yeah, it was a warm night! We use the oil as a diaper cream and moisturizer. It was in the top drawer of her dresser. The lid was not on!!! It was on it’s side!! It was after 10 o’clock. She was sleeping. I couldn’t really assess the situation, so I just removed the tub from her bed and hoped there wasn’t a disaster in the morning.
If only you could have heard my laugh when I saw that girl on her birthday morning!!!!! The girl had the stringiest, greasiest hair I have ever seen!!! Over half her sheet was covered in coconut oil!! The two books she had in her bed were completely soggy!! And her poor little penguin was slick! Oh, I love that kid! So please excuse the greasy hair in the first few pictures!
We had pancakes for breakfast!!
We opened a present!
We played with the new toy!
