Then again, maybe this is my first rodeo

Not the sharpest tool in the shed?  Elevator doesn't go to the top floor?  Not the brightest crayon in the box?  A few fries short of a Happy Meal?  Yeah, I was having one of those moments.  Nothing makes you feel like a bigger chump than making a parenting mistake as amateur as leaving a cup of (lukewarm) coffee on the little table in your kids' playroom and then wandering out of the room.  Makes you wonder what happens next, right? 
Uh huh...I bet you had to ponder that one for awhile.
Here's Josie, the child who would rather get 100 vaccinations in a row than have liquid touch her lips, polishing off her morning cup of joe.

No, she didn't drink it.  She kindly ensured that Stanley Steamer stays in business in this struggling economy.  She's thoughtful like that.
Meanwhile, she's just relaxing with her coffee mug.  Looks like a Folder's commercial. 
The best part of waking up is dumping your mom's coffee cup!

No one to blame for this one but myself.  Maybe I did fall off the turnip truck yesterday.


  1. I'm just impressed that she kept that nice white shirt clean. See, she is thoughtful and well aware that she was looking too cute to get messy herself!

  2. Don't be so hard on yourself!! You "ain't seen nothin' yet". Those girls are young! LOL

  3. Oh girl, no worries. I have been around a LOT longer than you and no matter how far from the edge I put my cup Dariya pulls it down on herself. Ugh!

  4. I love her..."I did not do anything look" and definitely a true lady..did not spill a bit on her beautiful white blouse...

  5. Holding a cup, it's progress! My hubby always wonders why he finds random coffee cups on the mantle, dressers, and bathroom counter. Those little kids are like vultures for some coffee. I think it's because they notice how enthralled we are by it... And honey, they are always going to pull one over on you, just give up hope of outsmarting those smart little girls now :)

  6. I ruined a computer keyboard with a cup of coffee and I still haven't learned my lesson yet. You can look at my shoes and tell which hand I carry my coffee in. You could just blame it on the monkey. He looks kind of shifty to me.

  7. I love how it looks like the monkey had an accident!! Been there - done that!
