Maddy has been pretty into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney Junior lately. She asks to watch it constantly but we try to limit it to 1 or 2 episodes a day at the most. She got a small toy Minnie Mouse at the store a few weeks ago and begged to take it everywhere. The problem was that Minnie was only a couple of inches tall which meant she was VERY easy to lose. After a very close call in the grocery store, I decided that we needed a bigger Minnie if Maddy was going to want to take her places. I ordered a 17 inch Minnie Mouse on Amazon and boy was Maddy happy when she came. She sleeps with her, takes her in the car, drags her all over the house, etc. We don't let her take her to daycare but she does insist on Minnie driving in the car with her on the way there and even makes Ted promise to watch Minnie when he drops her off.
Funny Things Maddy Says - Minnie Edition
Maddy tries to stall at bedtime most nights, which means she asks for water, asks to be covered up, asks to sing songs, and read more stories. Basically anything to help keep her awake and interacting with us. The other night I put vaseline on her face because she's had dry skin and then she went to bed. About 10 minutes later she was fake crying and shouting for us. When I went in there she said "my need more vaseline, Minnie stole it" and pointed to her face. I couldn't help but laugh, as if her stuffed Minnie actually swiped the vaseline off of Maddy's face. Nice try kid!
