Faster than a speeding bullet?


I know what you're thinking.

"Oh, she's so perfect. She's adorable. Her eyes are the color of chocolate. Oh my gosh, they just don't come any cuter!"

And I would have to agree with all of the above. After all, she is mine and I don't mind saying, I do rather splendid work.

Okay fine, my husband helped... a little.

But I have a secret for you.

*whispering* Pssst... lean in closer. 

She's really a monster in disguise. 

No, no, it's true, and I can prove it!

Observe her handiwork.

And she did it, oh so quickly and quietly. I was down there only minutes before.

I suppose I could look on the bright side and consider the possibly that she's merely a budding super hero, perhaps who's powers involves stealth and speed.

But I'm opting for monster.

Why?

Because she has no remorse. None.  

I had stepped out of the bathroom briefly to collect pajamas. And when I came back?

No remorse.

I had just barely finished making a sandwich for my husband who had only a few second to run in the house to grab it and leave again. I walked my husband to the door and waved goodbye. Then I went back to the kitchen.

So much for that pack of turkey.

No remorse.


I saw her with the box of cereal, but was walking past to throw some dirty towels in the laundry room. I came straight back to grab it from her. Too late.

No remorse.

She actually had the audacity to say "cheese" while I snapped this picture!

Did I mention she had already done that with a bag of chips and a bag of graham crackers?

Oh well, I suppose now whoever eats the last bowl from that box won't have to worry about the annoying cereal powder that always makes your milk weird.

Maybe she's just really smart and is trying to help out by getting rid of the cereal powder?

Eh, I'll stick with monster, for now.

A cute monster whom I love and adore. And she knows it.


She was about to show me her fangs.

20 super cool people speak:

She is adorable.
Yes, and you do good work!

Saimi said...

Really now, what is there to say, she's just so dang cute it would be hard to get mad.

She actually reminds me of our little Beagle...The one you can't turn your back on, yeah that one!

Get those two together and....Oh, I shutter at the thought at what they could accomplish!

Kristina P. said...

At least she's got the cute thing going for her.

Lisa said...

The cute part might just save her life. I know that's why I still have four children...I might have had five, but he wasn't cute enough.

T said...

I have a ton of similar pictures of my third child... cute saved his hide more than once.

Of course, I was probably sending mixed messages when I ran for the camera every time I happened upon him in the midst of a disaster.

Nikki said...

I have her soul mate here at my house and he's got chocolate eyes and blonde hair too! It's a match made in heaven. They can be destructive superhero's together!

Gina said...

You make me feel better. I did a post similar to this (with my little monster) and somebody left a mean comment about it :(

She is a cute monster, though :)

Marcie said...

My dad called to see if her head was okay from the trauma incurred at Owen's blessing. Looks like she's doing great! :)

Patty Ann said...

So darn stinkin cute! You have your job cut out for you! I have had that problem too and I can promise you that the teenage years will make you shudder! Just keep telling yourself, she will grow out of this, she will grow out of this, she WILL grow out of this!!! I promise that they do!

M-Cat said...

So so cute!!

Garvin Smith said...

There is no possibility of her growing up spoiled or mama's pet is there?

The Martos Fudge said...

They never cease to amaze us at how fast they can be... Thank goodness like you said. They are cute and perfect, that's what keeps them alive some days....

Neisha said...

haha, she sounds like a handful but a cute handful :)

Cherie said...

I am laughing that she said "cheese" for the cereal picture. Oh she's a fiesty one I can tell. But she is super adorable!! Gotta love the combo :-)

Cheeseboy said...

She is pretty cute. The cute ones are the ones you have to really keep your eye on.

Sue said...

Love her in the white beanie!

=)

Mama Smith said...

She reminds me of another little girl...I raised up...who became an incredible young woman! (smile)

Kazzy said...

Ooooo, she is a little devil, huh? But a beautiful one. With chocolate eyes!

Charlotte said...

I think the cuter (and quieter) they are, the more monster they have in them. God makes it that way so they survive.

Oh man! That is so my littlest one too! Let me guess, she's two or just about there? What happened to my sweet little girl?! Ours has been replaced by a monster too. :(
