R.I.P. Sophie the I

Originally uploaded by telfandrea.

We had our first (out of many I am sure) instance of incredibly questionable parenting last week. I was hosting a baby shower at our house for my friend Lisa and with fifteen minutes before people started showing up, I was in go-mode, cooking and cleaning. Telfer was helping me and playing with Cate who was sitting in her bumbo seat on the kitchen table. I was chopping something and happened to turn around only to see two-feet flames shooting up about six inches from where Cate was sitting. She had dropped her Sophie giraffe (a teething toy she got as a gift) into the candle… Thank the Lord Sophie (poor Sophie) took the beating (alas, no legs) in this case rather than my sweet girl…

As this is Cate's most beloved toy, we had to find her a Sophie the II.

i love my sophie

  1. I do not think I should share this story with Paul… :)…I’m trying to picture all of this. Brings back some faint memories of a certain colander. Glad everyone (except Sophie) survived :).
