Except I can't forget about the cupcake!
Last week we had a little party for Sadie. It was in honor of being a big girl and being weaned. I made tuna sandwiches (Sadie's new favorite food) for lunch and set up her new Beauty and the Beast plastic tea set and then brought out the cupcakes after we'd finished lunch.
Sadie was very excited. She loves cupcakes. However, even though she didn't eat much (she was already full of tuna) she definitely had a stomach ache afterwards.
So the other cupcakes (they were the giant ones from Costco) were hidden away.
Unfortunately, Daddy must have been asleep when we had the "no cupcakes in front of Sadie talk" and he brought out a cupcake after dinner!
Sadie started to scream the second she saw the cupcake. Paul quickly whisked it out of the room and put it in the laundry room to save until Sadie went up for her bath, but Sadie was on a cupcake hunt and she was pretty sure that Daddy was going to eat that cupcake that night. Twice she left the room and went into the living room and then turned suddenly and sprinted back into the kitchen swinging her head back and forth searching for a cupcake eating Daddy.
She didn't catch him, but the next day when we were going out on a walk she looked into the garbage can in the back porch and stopped in her tracks. She reached into it and pulled out a cupcake wrapper and held it up for everyone to see. She repeated this twice more (each time we went out that way) to make sure we'd gotten the point. Daddy had eaten a cupcake!
Now she's really trying to catch him with a cupcake!
