Toddler for sale... Cheap!*

Some days are better than others. Yesterday we had playgroup. I love playgroup. Amelia gets some great interaction with the kids, and we have a great group of moms. We get to sit around and BS and try to not eat the cinamon rolls that people bring, while the kids have a great time. The first half of the day was good. Then we got home.

The princess was supposed to be asleep. Apparently she has figured out how to open drawers and climb up her dresser. When I went to get her up from her nap she had covered her body in aquaphor. (a diaper cream thats like vaseline.) She had also covered her hair, and her closet door, and her bathroom door and some of the carpet. She was in her room for no more than an hour, and I never heard a peep. She usually starts hollering or yelling Hi Mommy when she wakes up. I was in the living room below her and didn't hear her walking around or jumping on and off the dresser. So I have now washed her hair 4 times. She is currently in there getting her hair washed again. I don't know how to get this stuff out. I think I'm going to try the selson blue dandruff shampoo. Thats what the doctor had us use when she had cradle cap.

After the aquaphor incident, we had another one involving the cat tree. We have a big cat tree, kitty condo, whatever you want to call it in the living room. Amelia has been trying for a while to figure out how to climb up to the first level. Well yesterday she pulled one of her toys over and got up on the first level. Then she tried to climb down through the hole and got stuck. Not a little bit stuck. but completely stuck. She slid down and had her arms and upper body sticking out the top and her belly stuck below. I had to turn the thing over on it's side and pull her out. It took me at least 10 minutes to get her out. Jeff was off in LA working and didn't get home until after she went to bed. I think I need a vacation...

*This is a joke. I do not want to now, nor have I ever seriously considered wanting to sell my child.
