It’s blended post time!
The little hummingbird’s birthday – The little hummingbird loves poop. She loves saying poop, talking about poop, and looking at poop. Her 3rd birthday is in a few weeks and I haven’t been able to figure out what kind of cake to get her. Then last night I had the most awesome idea ever. Having a birthday cake with a pile of poop on it.
We could have a poop theme and have games like hide & poop, pin the tail on the poop, and we can watch Poopeye.
Okay, so we’re not going with that theme but me even thinking about it means I have more time on my hands than I knew. Really though, a poop themed 3rd birthday party would be kind of fun. And as you know, third rhymes with turd.
This cake is really gross but I bet my daughter would go crazy for it….
I was thinking since she’s still obsessed with Sabby (Santa Claus), maybe we could get her a Christmas cake. It could be a Christmas themed birthday. In April.
Doctor stuff – We finally saw an endocrinologist last week for the hummingbird. She has to get some blood work done but other than that the doctor doesn’t think her recent low blood sugar and one week stay in the hospital means she’s going to have hypoglycemia.
The doctor told us that because the little bird is small, when something happens like the stomach virus we had, her body gets out of whack. We’ll hopefully find out more soon after the blood work which I’m really dreading. My poor girl has been poked and prodded so much already.
Skin care – Once upon a time I used to be an Esthetician and I still love skin care. I was thinking about making some natural skin care products and starting up a store on Etsy. It will just be a handful of things for now like a brown sugar scrub, bath fizzy’s, and Little Bird milk bath powder. I don’t like smelly skin care products so I wouldn’t add essential oils to anything.
I might even make candles too. I used to do that and loved it. If I go ahead with it, it’ll take me some time to set up shop but I really love the idea. If you have an Etsy shop, do you have any advice when it comes to starting one? I’d love for you to link your Etsy shop in the comments so I can take a looksy.
YouTube – My daughter loves YouTube and she found a few videos that she watches over and over and over again. There’s one that shows a cat pooping in a toilet. She’ll run to my bedroom in the morning and one of the first things she says is cat pooping? cat pooping?
I’ll put it on here
to torture you for your viewing pleasure….
The little hummingbird loves to take pictures so I’m looking for a camera that’s indestructible and for a 3 year-old. I think it’s pretty cool to see her view of things in the pics.
A close-up of my hand…
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Mwah!
Etsy Shops that are full of awesome.
Steambobbin – Alison is from the Pacific Northwest (my favorite place!) and makes really fabulous hats which you have to check out. The little hummingbird already has a ton of hats but I know she would go crazy if she saw the hats Alison makes. I’ve fallen in love with her Tulip brim croche hat.
Saltbox House – Jackie makes signs and woodwork. I could absolutely use this sign since it never fails that the UPS man rings the doorbell when the little hummingbird is napping. I used to make a paper sign and tape it on the front door but Jackie’s is so much better and would be great for a new mom. I also LOVE this one.
