Desperate House Wife Turns into Baby Cakes!

Baby Cakes Stella!
Stella did her first runway walk and she was so ready to strut her stuff as a Desperate Housewife.  The back of her outfit says Stella.  And in the time it took us to sprint out of the car and into the store, she had removed her curlers!   I couldn't believe it!  All that work, and I really thought I had those things anchored in there with a "safety net " of styling gel.  She was quite proud of herself, prancing down the Halloween Runway because of her victory.  She left with lovely cookies and suddenly I was possessed by Toddlers and Tiaras. I made a firm resolve to train her to wear curlers over the course of the next week.    I don't recall this "model" problem on Project Runway. 

In my mind I kept thinking, resistance is futile!  However, it became quite apparent that the model was very unhappy with her designer and alas I had to come to terms with the situation at hand. Early today, I made a bow and bunny slippers and brought them with us just incase she held a tantrum. This time she wouldn't stand still for the first curler. So we negotiated, I played the role of Dance Mom  and Stella wore the bunny slippers and a bow and was a much happier as Baby Cakes! (I had treats in my pocket and must have given her a half dozen to convince her to wear it and be cute!

Side note: Bentley, thought the curlers were delicious and thanks Stella for todays additional treats.

If I know nothing else, I definitely know how to make SOCKS look creative. Most of us don't need to make pet shoes with socks, but if you have a little girl in your life, it is very easy to add ribbons to socks.  You can learn more here. See the third video in the list on this linked page to see how easy it is.

Oh, Cookie! Hysterical! Is she going Trick or Treating or giving out the candy? Has she seen herself in the mirror? She may just have a desperate housewife fit!
