We had a bit of a communication break-down with Aunt Emily. Yes, she’s fun, and #1 has a great time, but we miscommunicated.
I told Aunt Emily that #1 can play in her room when she wakes up. Aunt Emily thought there was a time stipulation. And, she let her play a little too long. She pulled off all the books on her shelf. She threw away several pairs of socks, tights and some cotton balls. Then, she found the mother load. The Vaseline.
Apparently, Vaseline? It makes great shampoo!! #1 put it all over her hair. And Vaseline? Is not water soluble, and does not wash out.
As soon as Aunt Emily found #1, #1 told her “clean up.” She knew.
After two shampooings and ample time to dry, she looked like a grease monkey and her hair felt horrible.
Since it was still nasty, I got online to try to figure out how to remove the goo. It was recommeded that we use cornstarch and then shampoo.
Cornstarch, Vaseline and hair=hilarious combination. Have a look for yourself. We’re sure she looks pretty crazy!
And, I should mention that the last time Aunt Emily watched #1, #1 got into the A&D; ointment and spread it all over the room.
And, it’s not like she went to bed with these things. They were in the drawer of the changing table. She has to stand on her tippy-toes and blindly reach into it. But she succeeded.
Too bad Aunt Emily is free or we might have to fire her!
