Guess Again



I know what you're thinking.

Looks pretty incriminating, doesn't it?

But you're wrong.

It was uh... *eh hem* I was the one who uh... *chewing lip* who... who *coumade the messgh*.

Huh? Sorry, what was that? Nope, I didn't hear anything. Not a thing. Nada.

.......... Okay fine! It was me! There, I admitted it! You happy now?

I was about to change a very vile diaper when, seeing her little bum was pretty sore, jumped up to grab the SAMS CLUB SIZE container of cornstarch. (cornstarch makes a great diaper rash remedy, cheap too)

The other kids had been playing with it earlier but I didn't think much of it until I was frolicking back... well of course I frolic! Don't you?

Pity.

Frolicking is a much better means of traveling than simply walking.

More time efficient too.

Anyhow, where was I? Oh yes, I was frolicking back to Alayna when it slipped out of my hands and *POOF*, landed right next to her.

We both just stood there staring at each other in total shock. But the look on her face had me bursting into laughter. I couldn't help myself! The whole thing was undeniably funny.

Even after I was doubled over in uncontrollable laughter she just stared at me like I was insane.

Who knows? Maybe I am.


The bad part came later that night when I realized that I had left the container in the boys room.

Yea... they had made several small mounds of white powder that they proceeded to bang into the carpet while laughing hysterically.

Oddly enough, I didn't think it was all that funny.

My mom never did anything as cool as that…sigh.

The Martos Fudge said...

I mean what else could you do? Just Laugh... She looks so cute just laying there waiting to be cleaned....

T said...

way to go owning your errors - she doesn't look like it will cause any lasting damage. The cornstarch ground into the carpet though??? that may be another story, enjoy!

Mama Smith said...

Isn't it funny...how similar situations...can be so different...in RESPONSE? I guess...it is the "spirit" of the event! (smile)

Charlotte said...

Wow, your kids learned from the best, huh? How did you get her to stay there long enough to get the picture?

Momza said...

She looks like this is a regular occurrence...unflinching, as if to say,
"See what I live with, people?"

Lisa said...

What kind of mother frolicks until she dumps cans of powder on her wee little innocent child? I don't even know if I know who you are anymore. :)

Amy said...

Fantastic!!
You know what you need to do? Seriously? You need to publish your blog posts into a book for posterity. This stuff is just too hilarious, too priceless, and too well-written to not be put on the shelf!!!

Good for you to frolic. Frolicking is good for the soul. Even if it does make a mess.

Amber said...

I'm pretty sure I frolic everyday. Maybe that's why my house is a constant mess because I certainly do NOT frolic with grace. : )

Cheeseboy said...

That is great. I thought it was powdered sugar at first. Classic moment.

Patty Ann said...

Love it! I know that I NEVER would have thought to grab the camera though! You did an amazing job of documenting the fun. This will be something she will laugh about later!

Cherie said...

Oh my gosh she looks darling - the look on her face is priceless!! Ha Ha

Kazzy said...

I laughed out loud!

Scrappy Girl said...

She is so not amused...lol.

Neisha said...

i can just see her thinking "oh mom"

Larsen said...

Does it clean up as well as baby powder??

yeesh. and I frolick all the time!

M-Cat said...

That is one giant container of cornstarch!
And I love the expression on her face. Priceless!
