Remedy for Lip Balm and Aquaphor?

I know you're just dying for an update on little Sabrina right?

Well, let me tell you that this girl is still AWESOME!  Man, that kid makes us laugh, laugh, laugh. 

She is 2 1/2 now...going on 14 based on some of the attitude she throws.  I know, I know..."I wonder where she gets that from?"  I've heard it all before.

She is super independent.  She wants to do everything by herself.  She wants to dress herself and you cannot change any of it and I guess that's ok even if it means that she looks like she got dressed in the dark.

She loves jewelry as is obvious in the photo to the left.  She was jumping up and down on the bed wearing just a diaper and the bling-bling that is wrapped around her neck.  Auntie Heather was the big winner that weekend!  Sabrina's eyes about bugged out of her head when Auntie Heather came out with the necklaces.

The other night I was flipping through the channels when I stopped on the spanish speaking channel Telemundo.  Sabrina loves to watch this channel because of all the bling that the women (and men) sport.  Personally I think "Telemundo" must be Spanish for "What Not To Wear".  Most of those outfits are just embarrassing!   

She loves to play dress up and is convinced that she's a princess.  She got a chest filled with princess outfits complete with shoes and a crown from her Auntie Hes.  She calls it her "piao-piao" which is kind of a kids way of saying "pretty" in Chinese. 

She has a crazy shoe fetish.  Dave swears that it's from my genes and that I will be the one responsible for supporting this addiction.  As long as she wears the same size shoes as me I'm totally ok with that.  She loves Converse and has tons of them thanks to Grandma.  

She is obsessed with brushing her teeth and even likes to floss.  Pretty good, huh?  Gotta Give Daddy props for that!

And as you can see from the tooth brushing photo to your left I use her as my personal billboard.

And now for the piece de resistance!!!  She spends many mornings with Daddy in the bathroom while he gets ready for work.  She watches him get all dolled up for work and apparently has paid close attention when he applies hair product to his hair.  It's usually a light wax or something in a round container.

The other day she found a tin of my favorite lip balm.  It's Rosebud's Strawberry Lip Balm and Moisturizer.  Looks harmless right?

This stuff works like a charm.  And it's a addicting.

She sees me aply this stuff all the time.  Let me be clear that the only part of my body that I apply this to is my lips. 

Sabrina, however, apparently thought that this was a hair product as well as a facial moisturizer.

Check it out.

Please note the shiny forehead and the slick back mad scientist hairdo. 

And the big chunks of strawberry lip balm in her hair.
And she was absolutely, positively convinced that she looked gorgeous.  She was so proud of her hairdo.  
I washed her hair 3 times with dish soap and it didn't seem to help at all.  Then the next day she applied a liberal amount of Aquaphor to her hair and body.  This time we washed it with some baby oil to break down the wax and then washed it with dish soap and then did a little conditioner.  Clean hair!!!!

So that's your update.  Hope you enjoyed it!
