This is Cookie. He is a Beanie Boo. Beanie Boos are basically beanie babies with huge eyes. Princess A got one from Freckles for Valentine’s Day and she loved it instantly. We thought it was because Cookie looks a little bit like Freckles.
One day I was in mommy and me class and something was up because all the babies were crying. Then basically all the moms pulled out a beanie boo and gave them to their babies and they stopped crying. It was amazing! We all laughed about how the same thing made our kids happy and decided maybe it was the big eyes that made them so appealing.
Today Princess A and I are taking the day off from blogging. Usually we take Saturday and Sunday off but this week we will blog on Saturday and take today off. The reason being… Princess A has the diaper rash from Hell! She woke up in a horrible mood and didn’t give me a smile or kiss when I got her out of her crib. When I took off her diaper I knew why. Her butt was as red as hell.
I have been very lucky with Princess A. This is her first diaper rash and she is over a year old. I called the doctor and we have an appointment for later today. The doctor recommended some over the counter creams for the time being so I took Princess A to the drug store. She was crying hysterically. But when we went to check out there was a bunch of Beanie Boos. On any other day I would be annoyed with this but today I was relieved. I grabbed a penguin Beanie Boo and she instantly stopped crying. I guess our theory on her liking them becaiue Cookie was because he looks like Freckles is wrong because she hugged that penguin and started smiling! I bought the penguin because Princess A deserves something that makes her smile when she is feeling so rotten.
So while I am taking care of Princess A and she is recovering and cuddling with her Beanie Boos… any mom advice on horrible diaper rashes?
