Shoot! Crap! Mmmmmmpffffff! It sucks not being able to swear on your blog. Not that I swear a lot in real life but on a few occasions I do let some strong words fly. And this would be one of those occasions.
Baby Bug broke my control key on my laptop. See, this is why you should not let babies play with your expensive electronics. When will I ever learn? Remember that time I let my nieces play with my camera? Hmph. I’m so dumb.
I thought, “I’ll just put my laptop here on the coffee table and catch up on my bloglines while Baby Bug watches Curious George… she’ll be fine.” Oh! I was so wrong! As soon as the “other baby” (my laptop) was within reach Baby Bug climbed off the couch and clamored over to it. I don’t know what I was doing. Probably zoned out watching Curious George. This happens sometimes. I watch cartoons, she gets into things. What kind of mom am I?!!! But the cartoons are really good these days. Have you watched them?
Anyway, somehow Baby Bug flicked off my control key with her wiggly little super fingers. She’s very good at things like this. She can peel stickers off and even get lids off lotion tubes. You’d never guess such a little person would be so deft with her fingers. Too bad she can’t put the key back on for me. I’ve tried everything and my fingers seem to be too big and clumsy to put it back on. I guess I’m going to have to take a trip over to the genius bar and see if there are really any geniuses working there.
Mommy: Hi, Mr. Foot.
Mr. Foot: … (Mr. Foot says nothing, feet don’t talk)
Mommy: Why are you here at the high chair, Mr. Foot? You belong below the highchair. Are you hungry for something?
Baby Bug: MmmmNaaaaMmmmmNaaaaMmmmm…
Mommy: Do you want some cheerios, Mr. Foot?
Baby Bug: MmmmNaaaaMmmmmNaaaaMmmmm!
Mommy: See, you cannot eat cheerios you have no mouth.
Then Baby Bug smears banana into her pajama covered foot.
I thought this was funny at the time. Now it doesn’t seem so funny.
