A Little Lady Mess

Usually, Little Lady's crib is a corner of her room a good distance away from the window, shelves, and changing table. This past weekend, though, we rearranged it to be a guest room for my family. When they left on Sunday we were all so tired we decided we would wait until nap time to move it back - BIG mistake! About fifteen minutes after laying Little Lady down we heard some unexpected noises. Husbandie went upstairs to check and found this...

it's hard to see but her diaper is covered in about an
inch of butt paste

I'm glad he was the one who found her because he immediatly yelled for me to bring the camera - I would have probably just yelled. 

Butt Paste does not clean up very easily. It took quite a bit of scrubbing to get it off the crib and the window. Little Lady also took a bit of scrubbing; she had two baths yesterday and her hair is still a little on the crazy side.

Husbandie teases me all the time about not screwing lids all the way back on - I think I may have finally learned my lesson.


  1. Oh my gosh, this happened to me yesterday too! No joke! Except my daughter dragged her little chair over to her dresser and climbed up to get it down. We just moved her into a toddler bed since she climbs out of her crib so we obviously need to make some adjustments. Haha! They are sooooo smart!

    1. Ha! That is too funny! I hope she didn't leave with too big of a mess - I sure to wish they'd use their smarts for more constructive things :)

  2. this makes for a bad clean up- but adorable pictures! xoxo

  3. Oh bless her! She has this look on her face, just saying 'Mess? me? NEVER?'
    great pictures!

  5. She is adorable! What a funny memory. Great blog!

  6. o my gosh! that's funny...glad you will be able to show her these pictures later on in life.

  7. I'm the same about not screwing lids on completely. She does look adorable and to some degree that's what being a kid is about right? Getting into messes.

  8. OMG! That is too funny! We could never let our children alone together. LOL!

Preschool Syllabus: Dr. Seuss

Normally I'd do a Dr. Seuss unit in March around his birthday. We had to do one now though because on Saturday Big Buddy and I going on a date to a  Dr. Seuss exhibit . The exhibit is only at the museum until January and I'm afraid if we don't go now we might not get the chance. We are of course reading lots of Dr. Seuss's books. A great advatage to studying Dr. Seuss in November rather than March is that all his books were available at the library. I also found a great children's biography which is perfect for preschoolers. Pebble First Biographies: Dr. Seuss  We've read it a couple times and Big Buddy loves reciting all the facts he's learned WRITING CENTER ADDITIONS big buddy's name in sand paper letters, coloring pages  & mazes from skills practiced: fine motor, letter recognition, creativity,  reading comprehension LEARNING "TRAYS" -   I rotate these, setting out about four a day from which the boy&#

Paint Chip Word Families

We haven't been doing a ton of school work this summer but we have tried to fit in a little reading practice everyday. We are currently working our way through Bob Books and The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading - I  highly recommend both. I saw this idea for paint chip word families on Pinterest several months ago and knew it would be one we'd have to try. I changed it up a little bit so that the the strips pulled through the word family cards.   My supplies: large white paint chips, various colors of paint chips, sharpie, scissors, and an x-acto knife all my paint chips are from ace hardware  Step 1: Because my colored paint chips were so wide I folded and cut them in half. Step 2: In the center of the white paint-chip, use the x-acto knife to cut two openings, at the top and bottom of the white square, the width of the color strip.  Step 3: Use the sharpie to write letters on paint chips (a list of word families can be found h

A Little Red Cardboard Barn

We've finished our farm unit and are moving on to a new theme tomorrow - but before we do I wanted share the barn we made. The wooden farm animals came with a beautiful handmade ark that we gave Big Buddy for Christmas a couple years ago.  I would someday love to have a wood barn but it's currently not in the budget. So in the mean time we decided to improvise and make our own.  I stumbled upon this perfectly sized milk box (4 gallons per box) while subbing and thought it would be sturdy enough to handle play. Hubandie and the boys used an x-acto knife and wood glue to build a barn shape. to get the doors to fold out hubandie used an x-acto knife and scored the inside of the cardboard We then painted with a basic primer and outlined a window and a door with painters tape. cardboard is very porous so priming is a must if you want decent coverage Big Buddy however insisted that we add more windows so it looked like the barn in our book The Big
