John sat reading for some time, and then set the baby monitor and went to the restaurant for lunch.
When he has finished he went to the office and told the owner that his plans had changed and instead of just the one nights, he and his daughter would be staying several days. And as such Emily would need her own room, so could they transfer to a bigger unit?
He was told it would be no problem, that the deluxe suite next door to them was available. Complete with double master bedroom, a theme child’s room the princess room ,and a full bathroom if he wished to view it?
He said it sounded perfect, and there no need to see it, he would take it .They would transfer this evening, and in the meantime he would start moving some stuff from one to the other.
John went back to the room, after checking the suite which was fabulous, Emily would love her room.
Emily was sound asleep, so cute with her doggy beside her, and her gentle movement of her pacifier.
He prepared a bottle of warm milk, and added a diuretic, and put a teat on it with the same shape as her pacifier, then sat on edge of her bed and gently but quickly swopped her pacifier for the teat of the bottle, and waited to see if she would drink. For several minutes she just suckled and swallowed the milk, till she balked a little. John swapped back her pacifier for the teat.
He checked the bottle and saw she has drank nearly 8 oz of the milk.
After spending another minute enjoying her, he took an MP3 player ,tucked the ear buds under her pillow and started it playing and brought volume up gradually till it was barely audible. The looped recording of Emily’s voice doing her mantra
I am Emily Sinclair, I am Emily, I am 8 years old, john is my daddy, I love my daddy, I am his princess.my mummy is in heaven all repeating over and over with a running water sound backdrop
The got up and started moving things from room to suite, then sat and read his book.
About 40 minutes later he heard her, murmuring and saw her stirring a little,he use dthe remote till turn off the MP3,till she settled again. Then restarted it
He watched some tv with the volume low ,and 2 hours later he saw her stirring again, and shut off the MP3.
He went over to her and said
“Time to get up princess, you had a nice long nap” Taking her pacifier from her lips as her eyes opened.
She looked up smiling at first, and said “hello daddy” and then her expression changed and she looked perturbed and pushed her hand down under the cover.
When he tried to pull back the cover, she held it over her
“What’s wrong sweetie” He asked
She blushed, sort of sweetly “I wetth the bed a little daddy, I am sowwy daddy “she looked about to cry.
“Oh sweetie ,its ok ,you have a had a bad day, and the sleepy time shot ,the dentist gave you may have been why”
“Don’t be mad daddy, I did not mean to” a little tear at her eye.
He hugged her and said “How could I be mad with you for something you could not help”
“it’s ok, just a little accident, lets you out and clean and dry”
He pulled back the cover and her panties were wet, and a wet patch on the bed, he lifted her up and carried her to the bath room.
“No harm done sweetie just some wet clothes and sheets, lots of children have accidents, that’s why the bed has a plastic cover”
He ran some warm water into the bath
He undressed her and sat her on the potty chair
“Try and see if there is any more sweetie”
She sat and said “I am sorry I wet the bed ,I don’t know why it must have been the anetees………”
She paused and said “shot” instead of anesthesia
A few seconds later she tinkled, daddy wiped her gently with a tissue and sat her in the bath, and wiped her clean with a soft cloth, and then wrapped her in big warm white towel and took her back to the room, and put her on the floor on the play rug.
John went and got her some clean clothes, clean panties, vest, a blue and pink shopkins tutu dress, pink flats and ribbed white tights
He dressed her kissing, her head as he snugged the tights up then started brushing her hair
“We will have to do something about this, your hair is very damaged, and I did not do a good job cutting it, how about we go and see if we can find a salon and get it fixed later?”
He sat her on his lap as she said
“ It tickles my neck now daddy, it probably damaged because I stopped using moistu,rizzing…soft shampoo”,
He has noticed that with the braces she seemed to lisp when tired or upset, and long words seem to get stuck in her mouth, and she replaced with easier ones. This could only be a good thing
“I have to tell another thing sugar, I was planning on keeping on the move, give you a chance to practice being 8,but you are doing so well, and also we have to go back to dentist in 3 days, just for him to check”
“So we are staying here for a while, but in a different bigger suite, and you wait till you see your room!”
Emily giggled and her daddy smiled
“I will keep it as a surprise”
“Let’s go into town, see if we can get something done with your hair, and then go out for dinner, do you think you are ready for such a public outing?
She frowned but said “Yes daddy”
“Good girl, I will get you a drink, and you can watch TV for a while I move the last of the stuff into next door, and then I will show you your room, I will give you a clue, it is named for you….my princess”
He got her a bottle of apple juice and gave it to her. She seemed hesitant to drink it
“Don’t worry sweetie, I am sure it was just the sleepy time drugs, and drinking lots will help get it out of your system”
She started drinking, and he went to move last of the stuff, he put all the drinks. Foods etc in kitchen, and unpacked some of the clothing he had for her into the closet in her room,and put her doggy on the bed, also her pacifier and added a keeper ribbon that clipped to nightie.
Once he had moved everything and set up the MP3 player, baby monitor and put her Barbie on the play table, he returned back to bring the last item from the old room……………his princess Emily!
He carried her in his arms and at the door to her room,he told her to close her eyes and no peeking !!
Once inside he stood her on the floor and said
“Ok open your eyes”
Her eyes lit up, and she ran over towards the canopy princess bed
“Doggy got here first. And saw it”
She came back to him and hugged him.
“Oh it’s a fantuz,great room daddy, thank you”
“Nothing but the best for my princess Emily”
She climbed onto the bed, and hesitated at the crinkling sound.
“I am sorry sugar, I asked them to put a protective sheet on this too, and it must be a different one to the other”
She looked somber, then brightened up as she saw the princess night light that put stars on the ceiling.
“Ok sugar, shall we get going? ,a lot to do this evening, do you want to take anything?”
She had doggy in her arms
“if you want to take doggy, maybe we can get his hair done too”*smiling
She giggled sweetly
“Silly daddy, doggy does not need his hair done, he can wait in the car”
She jumped down carrying doggy and they headed out, he pausing only to put his jacket on.
