I just have to tell you about my newest "grandbaby." His name is Jaxson and he is a sugar baby. As a school assignment, my 6th-grader had to make and take care of a "baby" for several days. The "baby" was made out of 5 lb bag of sugar. Thanks to the creative genius of her friend's mother, Jaxson is one of the cutest sugar babies I've ever seen!
I had the privilege of babysitting this sweet little baby, and he was such a little sweetheart--good as gold!
BUT......You have to watch sugar babies AT ALL TIMES!!!
They look sweet, but they are mischief makers!
While he was supposed to be taking a nap, I caught Jaxson doing a few things...
He went swimming, without a life jacket!
(think sugar + water!)
He somehow got outside and caught in a microburst--it spun him about!
Then...I caught him chillin' with some friends!
When I told him to lie down and take a nap, he cried "Gran! I've made a big mess!"
He really "messed up" when he started giggling while I changed him, so I followed the trail...the little stinker had played a trick on me!
It was quite a day! Now I don't have the heart to tell him why I stopped calling him "Sweetie" and have started calling him "Cookie."
We've learned from Jaxson that each must fill the measure of his creation--and we'll love him no matter what shape he takes!
