Just a few minutes ago, I walked down the hallway toward the girls' room to check on Autumn (she was taking a nap). Usually when I round the corner, I smell a poopy diaper coming from the room (sorry for the gross details). Well today I smelled something sweet and fruity. It really smelled good and I immediately knew what was up. I opened the door and Autumn was sitting on her Amber's bed with Amber's Cinderella Grape Lip Balm in her hands, actually she was holding a container that used to house lip balm. The tube was empty and Autumn's bare feet, hands, face, two toys and part of the bedspread were covered in sweet-smelling grape lip balm! Amber and I had a deal that she could keep the lip balm in the drawer near her bed as long as Autumn did not get into it. Well I learned my lesson and in the future the lip balm will be hidden away on the top shelf of the medicine cabinet and Amber will only be allowed to use it when Autumn is asleep or away. (That was my original plan anyway.) I've cleaned up Autumn and the toys; now I must return to the bedroom to clean the bedspread. Maybe I can spot clean it and avoid doing another load of laundry. I have to look on the bright side of things: Autumn and the bedroom smell really good now!
