Small Pinball

Though she has been "walking" for nearly a year, it would be more exact to say that The Rooster careens like a drunken sailor.

Last week at Granny's house K sat on an ottoman attempting to enjoy a cup of coffee despite the whilrling toddlers and flying legos.

Without warning The Rooster slammed into him, sending hot coffee shooting out of his cup and spraying his whole body.

[The Rooster was untouched by the most sacred black drink.]

K shouted out in pain,

"AAAAHHHH! SON OF A MOTHER GARBLESHDLSKEDSSDF!!!"


The Rooster looked at her father completely bewildered.

"You spill your coffee, Daddy?" she said with total innocence.


K looked at her with wide, disbelieving eyes.

"Uh...yeah, Rooster. Daddy spilled his coffee."


With a mixture of sadness and confusion, The Rooster said,

"Oh. Why?"


GAH!


The joys.

OMG! Is it just now hitting me that Roo and my Peep are just about the same age? Oh, the coffee joys. Peep is actively bogarting steaming cups from anyone in range.

liv said...

wait! holy moly! I was first?

Bon said...

that is one sassy, hilarious, beautiful, lively little girl you have. a queen in a small body.

i adore her expressions.

pgoodness said...

LOL! Priceless. I love their innocence of all things surrounding them at this age. The whole WHO, ME? is hilarious (well, when you're not the one being scalded by coffee!)

miss bliss said...

Our daughters are about the same age, too. My Liney was born Aug. 24. Your Rooster is a lot more verbal, but we get the same oblivious attitude. Amazing what can be communicated without words.

Veronica said...

LOVE that picture. And your husband reacted better than mine does. Spillage is his fatal flaw.

Theresa said...

What a perfect picture. My foster nephew is the same age and he has the same mischievous look about him.

tulipmom said...

Thanks for the laugh. I needed it today.

~JJ! said...

Hee hee...She's great.

And that's the way it should be...we take the pain...they smile and stay gorgeous.

CamiKaos said...

she will probably grow up thinking daddy is a clutz.

Mandy said...

LOLOL! We've had very similar moments here when Liv was smaller, (and still do), she's a little cyclone sometimes!

QT said...

The pics are just priceles...

Omaha Mama said...

Too cute - and that crinkled nose smile! Now that my little girl is now almost four, she will just say, "But that was YOUR fault!" when she does something similar.

I like how you put it. Oh The Joys...

Mama en Fuego said...

GAH!!! The cuteness, my eyes, my eyes!!!!!

Must.not.nibble.on.baby.cheeks.

mamatulip said...

The sassiness, the attitude brimming forth from the picture....

I LOVE IT.

PunditMom said...

Now THAT's a look!

Lawyer Mama said...

PERFECT picture to go with this post! And, wow, does she look like you!

karrie said...

Around here we get a faux innocent "What happened?"

Eeek.

Kevin Charnas said...

Well, WHY???

shheezzz...

Jackie said...

Oh, that face!! :-D

FENICLE said...

What a sassy little girl you've got!!! She must be yours!

Jenifer said...

Uh of course...it could not possibly be her fault!

May I suggest a travel mug with those spouty lids...they might avert future coffee incidents.

Love the photo, she is going to be some trouble and I know I have two you frequently look at me like that!

Mrs. Incredible said...

There is somthing about that coffee cup that is like a magnet for little girls. My daughter is always dancing around mine. Rooster sure looks cute with all the curls! Oh, the cuteness.

Jenny said...

*snort* Priceless, aren't they?

Karen Forest said...

She is adorable. Simply adorable.

mom2EmnRoo said...

Cracking up! My Ruby has made that exact same expression so many times... it's the classic sh#t-eating grin, LOL.

GoteeMan said...

DEFINITELY need to put a warning on coffee cans -

"IF YOU HAVE A TODDLER, PLEASE READ, TO AVOID DAMAGE OR BURNING YOUR GENITALIA BEYOND RECOGNITION AS A RESULT OF HOT WATER FILTERED THROUGH THIS CRAP BEING DOWSED THROUGH YOUR NETHER REGIONS DUE TO TODDLER IMPACT".

LMAO-

Stepping Over the Junk said...

My girls did that, they would flail their arms a little bit too and when they crashed into things, would kind of look over their shoulder like "what was that, I wonder?"

That rooster is something else, love the photo!

Moobs said...

That face! It just says - "OK I'm trouble - but It'll be fun"

Karly said...

That grin...those curls...I bet Daddy didn't mind one bit that he spilled his coffee.

flutter said...

silly daddy, coffe is for drinking

Biddy said...

tee hee hee you should post pics more often, she just melts my heart! good thing none of the sacred black liquid of life got on her..she would have been scared for life because "daddy threw his coffee on her" or something fun like that

mcewen said...

Thank goodness no-one was hurt! Too funny.

Cathy said...

Now how could anyone blame that adorable little thing for coffee spillage? To think ... !

(I love that child's hair. Ringlets!)

Patience said...

Priceless!

NotAMeanGirl said...

OMG... I could just eat her up with a SPOON! Sigh... I need a lil girl... my 7 year old is drivin me insane.... anyone wanna trade?

radical mama said...

Well, I'd say that K handled that pretty well!

meno said...

I wonder if coffee is still effective when served in a sippy cup.

carmachu said...

Come on, how does K not know the first rule of toddlers:

Hot drinks and learning to walk dont mix....

Seattle Mamacita said...

in seattle people who spill coffee lose limbs :) i love that picture!

Lisa Fine/Kelly Kelly said...

ha! funny. I am similarly clumsy.

Lisa

notfearingchange said...

HA! Nice.

Lisa Milton said...

I love the little squishy face she makes - super cute.

My girl is 4'11" now and still barrels dangerously close to the java. Usually because she is talking 100 mph, desperate to tell me something.

Have I told you recently how much I love/appreciate/adore this site?

I do.

Virtualsprite said...

So funny! That is absolutely priceless!

jen said...

she's perfect, isn't she.

Hol&J said...

Out of the mouths of babes.
Ooh what a cute picture!

Anonymous said...

That was hysterical. And the picture is adorable. Looks like me, except less tangled hair. Can I say, "jealous?"

Just one itsy-bitsy continuity thang... you tagged this post and the previous one as belonging to The Rooster, and all the other posts pertaining to that adorable child are tagged as belonging to Rooster Girl.

Aliki2006 said...

I love that face! It's tremendous and made me smile from ear to ear.

moosh in indy. said...

Good thing she's cute.

moodswingingmommy said...

Awww, who could get angry looking at that sweet little mug?

Kyla said...

WHAT A GRIN!! Priceless.

painted maypole said...

lpok at that face! Do you really think she could be innocent? That's a smirk if I ever saw one!

Alpha DogMa said...

My kids are forever scalding and stabbing and punching their father in his nether regions. To ensure no other interlopers who will steal his love.

Damn, that girl is a cutie.

urban-urchin said...

what a cutie

Jennifer said...

Look at the sass! I love her!

"Why?" Hee.

Grim Reality Girl said...

It is a good thing she is so darn cute! Spilling coffee????? Um, yeah -- that is criminal!!!

carrie said...

"most sacred black drink" -- now, that, is funny!

Rooster - 1
K - 0

Time to up the game, daddy!

WILLIAM said...

That picture is the perfect "shit eating grin".

Damselfly said...

Ah, innocence!

EE said...

BlondeMomBlog (Jamie) said...

She is so freakin' cute!

I think K has the personality trait that I am lacking! ;) I needs me some of that parenting zen.
