Jaxson the Sugarbaby

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!"

Eeeeew! Disgusting!

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!

Hey, I want to see some of Jaxson after he has fulfilled the measure of his creation just to see if he ended up a successful, of course that may take some refined tasting on my part.

Hysterical! Again, this proves why you are the creative writer in the family!

Mmm, think I'll go find some candy! Don't know if I'll ever look at Sugar Babies quite the same again, though.
