I took them away from her and WHAP, she smacked me on the face for it.
(I said "Gracie, No-no. We don't hit." Then took her to her dolly, took her hand and said "soft, Gracie. We play soft. See? Soft." Can't really do much else at this age.)
Not gonna lie, I was kinda shocked by it. I couldn't believe the time had come when she smacked me on purpose. A little piece of my heart broke and I was determined to not have it happen again...or at least in the same week.
Daniel had recently broke one of the wipe holders so it wouldn't stay shut anymore. I remembered something on pinterest about putting fabric scraps in them and letting your baby play with it. I was immediately on board. As soon as my good friend brought me some of her left over fabric scraps--I was in business.
I didn't bother making them precise. They aren't all the exact same size. But they work. She friggin' loves it. So that's really all I care about.
I first got a big scrap piece of fabric. Laid out a wipe (unfolded), and cut out the size on the fabric. Then I folded that fabric in half. I did that a gillion more times until I was out of scrap fabric.
After all the fabric scraps were all folded in, I put them in the wipe container, closed it, pulled one sheet through and let her have at it.
