Brownies! With chocolate chip cookies on top! Teagan asked for brownies for her birthday. And cupcakes. And cake. These will have to do, with the cupcakes I made last night. I may need to make another batch, but it can wait until tomorrow night.
The pink cupcakes were a big hit. Teagan was very surprised to see that they were pink, and not white or yellow like most of the cupcakes she’s had before. It’s fun to surprise her like that.
Hopefully tomorrow works out well. The trip to the zoo, with the brownies as the surprise. I’m sure that the new Galapagos turtle exhibit, that she doesn’t know is there, will blow her mind. Turtles are one of her favorite animals, so seeing such big ones will be nifty.
We’re also going to be converting her bed tomorrow, after morning quiet/nap time. I hope that we’re doing the right thing, that she is ready for a big girl bed. We’ve been trying to impress upon her how she needs to stay in bed, if she has a big-girl bed, when it’s time to sleep. Hopefully, the pink blanket, and pillow, will be awesome too.
She also talked about giving up her bubbles on her birthday. I’m not sure if that will be too much change, too much new, for her or not. We have listened to the “Bye, Bye Binkie” song that Elmo sings. I’ve even caught her singing it to herself, where I’ve never heard her do that with anything other than “Row Row.”
She’s such a big girl now. I can’t call her my baby. She won’t let me.
