Here we go again!

As anyone that knows me well at all will tell you I have this thing about smells. I have a really strong sense of smell and if something smells bad or 'off' I'm the first to comment on it. I especially love for my house to smell good. When my house smells good it just seems to relax me and put me in a good mood. I used to use candle warmers through out the house, but last year there was an incident using one. Apparently the candle I bought had a crack at the base and I didn't realize it until it was much, much too late. After that little fiasco I put my candle warmers away and did things the old fashioned way and actually lit my candles. Crazy huh? Well a few days ago I was looking for something and ran across my candle warmers and thought 'hmm, maybe I should give them a try again'. I put a buttercream candle in the living room and it smelled awesome. If you've never used a candle warmer you would be surprised at the difference it makes. It melts the entire candle so you get a much stronger smell throughout your home. Well being the brainiac that I am I thought I would put one in Kylie's room yesterday. I made sure to put it in a corner where no one goes so I wouldn't have to worry about it getting bumped by anyone. It smelled great in there. As I went into her room last night to read with her I was thinking to myself that I was so happy to have started using my warmers again. Umm, yeah. Can you see where this is going? Right before I walked out of her room she said, "uh-oh" The one spot in her room where no one ever goes? She went there.

Needless to say the candle warmers will be put away again.

Oh No!!! We love our candle warmer but keep it only in the kitchen. Of course the ONE time, someone would go in that area. I hope it all cleans up! Did she get hurt?

I feel for you. I only started burning candles now because of too many kids running around!

She's fine. She went right to bed after it happened because she knew I was not happy, lol. I still need to go and finish scrapping it off the wall. I had to just walk away from it last night because I was too aggravated.
