Hold On To Your Hats

If you are not already in love with Baby,

After this, you should be.

Backstory:  Kid had a sleepover at a friend's house last night.  Sleepovers are pretty much always a recipe for disaster for our weekend. She has a REALLY hard time sleeping (I mean, I actually have to pack her a sleeping pill).  So when she came home this morning, I was expecting the worst.  She was in a strangely good mood.  (Like a drunk person)  When I found out she had 6 hours of sleep, I knew the shit would hit the fan at some point.  And at 6 PM it definitely did.

After awhile, I said to Baby, "She's pretty mad at me, what do you think I should do?"  And she said "Give her a present."  And I said "I don't have anything to give her."  And she said excitedly, "Don't worry, I do! I just need a small pink box!"

About 15 minutes later she had assembled the cutest box.
"It's perfect for girls her age."  Baby assured me.

What was in it?

an acne wipe in a plastic bag
and a panty liner
Oh my god, I wanted to laugh so hard.  I cannot even tell you.

But I was kind of scared of how it would be received,
considering Kid's mood.

In the end, I decided the pure good hearted adorableness of her creating 
a puberty emergency kit was too much for me to squash.

Then she ran out and came back and added this:
"Oh, that's a good idea because sometimes they crave chocolate."  I said.

"That's what I thought."  Baby replied sagely.

Then she wrapped it up and wrote a note:

"I wrote it in my best adult handwriting" She said,
 and handed it to me to give to Kid.

 Here she is confessing that she really put it together:

And I have to say, Baby was right.  This was the perfect gift.  
Even a grumpy sleep deprived hormonal preteen couldn't deny its charm.

Aw, thanks, Torey! What really cracked me up is that this idea was right on the tip of her brain. Literally the 1st thing she thought of was a puberty emergency kit??! You really never know what's going on in there...
