Cousinly Love

Our niece, Makenna from Florida is on town visiting for the week. She stayed with us last night, Kenedee was so excited to have her stay over. Makenna is almost 4 years older than Kenedee, it was Kenedee’s first time having a “sleepover” at our house. Makenna arrived a bit late in the evening, so we let them stay up a little later and play. We let them play downstairs for a little while (Kenedee was perfectly content playing downstairs with Makenna without us around; we asked her if we could play with them and she very kindly said, “No”.) 

So, when it was time to come upstairs and get ready for bed, Kenedee comes in the living room and says, “We spilled the baby juice in the microwave”. We thought maybe she was talking about her baby’s juice bottle in her microwave in her play kitchen.  Little did we know this is what we were going find:

dscn0828What you’re looking at is her Baby Alive sippy cup melted all over the real microwave!  They had taken the baby alive juice powder, poured it into the sippy cup and then put it into the microwave and set it for who knows how long; but long enough that it melted all over. Kenedee was so upset, I think she thought she was going to be in trouble. When Kyle came upstairs after making the discovery, she put her lip down and said, “It was my idea.” Poor thing. She then began telling us the reason they put it into the microwave was because that was how they thought the powder turned into liquid. Well, it did morph into some sort of liquid once the plastic melted into it. Thankfully, it cleaned up easily and Kenedee now knows not to touch the microwave unless mommy and daddy are present.


After this little mishap, the girls brushed their teeth and picked out books to read. We decided to let them sleep in the same bed, a first for Kenedee.

dscn0834After about an hour and a half of  us being called into the room for different requests and the girls chatting away, we finally decided it was best that Kenedee just sleep in her own bed. I guess she’s not quite ready for sleepovers yet, unless she sleeps in her own bed. It was still fun!
