I Spoke too Soon!

in Family, General

I never should have written that post about Georgia being handy!

It was definitely ‘premature’!

You're in Big Trouble Chickie!

Then as I was cleaning up her mess.

Mess = Nivea spread all over the bedroom and lipliner scribble on my bureau!

She says, “You cleaned up my BIG MESS. You’re a very GOOD girl Mommy!”

Hmmf! You bet your ass I am Georgia!

If you’re wondering what I was doing while she was ransacking my bedroom? Well, I was picking glass out of her lego table; that’s where she broke the musical snowglobe that made it through three older siblings!

You are so NOT HANDY Georgia!

    Isn’t it just like that? As soon as you compliment your kid, it backfires… like I’ll say what a good sleeper my son is and then he won’t sleep at all that night.

  • glittersmama December 13, 2007, 11:31 pm

    Nivea. yuck.

  • Auntie Gayle December 14, 2007, 12:04 am

    I’m sorry MK, but that photo and story is freaking hilarious. How can anyone not get a huge belly laugh from that..I sure did!

  • Michelle December 14, 2007, 12:20 am

    Oh goodness. So sorry! Yes, you should never say nice things about your children in your blog, they’ll turn around and make you sorry that you did the very next minute! At least you stopped to take some photos…

  • jenB December 14, 2007, 12:29 am

    Same thing here, with zinc ointment. Twice. So far only I have broken a glass ornament though. hee! She is so cute, I hate it when they do naughty things, you can’t enjoy the adorableness for a few minutes.


  • Tasha December 14, 2007, 12:42 am

    Haa Haa Haa, sorry but I howled!!!!

  • Michelle December 14, 2007, 12:54 am

    Sounds like she had quite a day. Like hurricane with the mommy vacuum following behind her

  • Amanda December 14, 2007, 5:31 am

    OMG! That had to have been quite the mess. Kind of like Thanksgiving – 6 hours to cook, gone in 15 minutes… 5 minutes to make the mess, 4 hours to clean it up!! Yet despite all that she is still gorgeous!

  • Deb December 14, 2007, 7:16 am

    Nasty! Well, she keeps you hopping! :)

  • Susy-Q December 14, 2007, 7:47 am

    So typical! Every time my husband and I compliment something our son does, he goes and does the opposite! Like:

    He has been sleeping so well = wakes up 4 times that night

    I love how he eats everything we offer him = he won’ touch his plate for supper

    He is so gentle with other children = pushes a girl off a scooter at playgroup

    I could go on….

  • Safire December 14, 2007, 8:14 am

    Hahaha…great picture!

  • Kait December 14, 2007, 8:24 am

    That’s so funny! Of course not so much to you. Gavin used to love drawing on the walls and doors with crayons if I turned my back for a second.

  • Keara December 14, 2007, 10:42 am

    Oh no! That is a great picture!

  • lace December 14, 2007, 10:53 am

    oh, my! That is such a great picture. I have a picture of my niece sitting in a giant pile of Kleenex after having pulled everyone out of a brand new box.

    Not as hard to clean up as lotion and lipstick.

  • Heather December 14, 2007, 1:32 pm

    I can’t stop laughing; she’s so cute even when she’s in big trouble…then, again, I didn’t have to clean up the messes, did I?! :) Mine makes plenty of his own…I feel your pain. :)

  • Happy Geek December 14, 2007, 2:37 pm

    Nivea eh? Arrg.

  • Jaime Stephens December 14, 2007, 3:00 pm

    What a mess! But you know it could have been worse… trust me diaper rash cream is impossible to get out. My daughters got into the jar and covered themselves, the carpet, the tables and as many books as they could. What was I doing while they got into that mess? Cleaning up the poopy mess that my potty training daughter left for me… oi!

  • Carissa December 14, 2007, 3:08 pm

    that reminds me of my little sister when she was little! we found her in the closet with a face full of desetin. she still loves the smell of it to this day.

  • bree December 14, 2007, 3:41 pm

    oy! now that is a mess! but look at that face….makes it hard to be mad at her I am sure :) hehe

  • Lisa December 14, 2007, 4:02 pm

    LOL That is a great picture. Save that to show her when she is older.

  • Teresa December 14, 2007, 4:48 pm

    HA HA HA!!! I love it, she is so cute and I love the fact that she was making another mess while you were in the other room cleaning up the first one. : ) I can totally relate and feel much comfort in the fact that others are experiencing the same thing as me. :)

  • Naomi December 14, 2007, 4:53 pm

    Yikes! Good mommy.

  • mama k December 14, 2007, 5:48 pm

    Oh no! This is what I have to look forward to I’m afraid.

    Good Girl Mommy!! :)

  • Andrea December 14, 2007, 8:05 pm

    haha…it’s so nice when they compliment you on cleaning up THEIR mess, isn’t it? Yikes…hopefully she becomes handy once again after this! :)

  • Jenny M December 14, 2007, 11:04 pm

    OY! Well, at least she knows how to moisturize. Seriously though, hope it came out or your bedroom is the easy cleaner arena

  • Mefeng December 14, 2007, 11:46 pm

    Hmm, Georgia with the big mess. I could just laugh with her are a very good girl, up my big mess.

  • Jamie December 15, 2007, 6:52 am


    You know, I’m so glad it’s not just me.

  • Colleen December 15, 2007, 11:06 am

    Zoe has already broken a snowglobe… but hasn’t gotten her hands into the Nivea yet! I’m sure the time will come.

  • Deanne S. December 15, 2007, 12:13 pm

    Glad you got your card reader back – your pictures are priceless!

  • Tracy December 15, 2007, 3:35 pm

    You might not be laughing right now, but one day you will look back on that picture and really appreciate those memories.

  • OMSH December 15, 2007, 8:46 pm

    I don’t mean to laugh, but I AM…snow globe and then THIS? It just wasn’t her day (or yours, rather).

    Georgia, give your mom some room!

  • leslie December 16, 2007, 6:00 am

    …yes, well….you should see how the 2 year old is doing with the living room painting…next, he’s putting up the tree!

  • Jenny M December 17, 2007, 3:19 pm

    I can definitely relate to the good mommy comment- I was told I did a good job when I found a snow plow today=)

  • Denette December 17, 2007, 11:02 pm

    lololol! She would make a good partner in crime with my 3 yr old!

  • Allison December 18, 2007, 12:49 am

    OMG that is funny–not soo funny for mommy, but funny for us readers.

    That reminded me of my daughters. im not a huge dipe rash ointment user–i like cornstarch. well…
    Lili at the age of 2ish decided to sprinkle that cornstarch around generously. and when i say generous i mean it….perhaps the carpet had a rash, or the couch or her head body or a trail of cornstarch from one end of the living room to the other. then two yrs later her sister at the ripe age of 2 decides that perhaps the same living room carpet and the same couch but a different little girls head and body needs seasoning…oi oi oi. im fast forwarding ahead 2 yrs from now and im sure miss georgia will follow suit. perhaps after two id learn to put the shaker of cornstarch out of reach…rofl..prolly not

  • katie bowen December 18, 2007, 7:49 pm

    hahhaha…i love it! we have disasters like this whenever i take my eyes off of james…he’s two years old and a little creative for his own good. while on the phone tonight he shoved the xmas tree light cord into an empty phonejack…who knew that would disconnect the phone?! i’m sure we will have massive amounts of patience for our retirement.

  • Sheena December 19, 2007, 10:51 pm

    She’s very good at talking her way out of getting in trouble!

  • Diane December 20, 2007, 12:37 am

    Well at least she appreciates your hardwork!! Sorry someone else out there didn’t (the accuser!!) Have a great Christmas!

  • Amy December 21, 2007, 12:23 am

    How did you not burst out laughing at that face covered in Nivea though? They can be such little monsters though can’t they? And usually right after you finished telling someone how good they are!

  • Kilikina December 21, 2007, 2:26 pm

    Oh my goodness. I am so sorry.

    good to be back to blog reading. we just moved so i think i’ll be back online now

  • Qtpies7~ January 2, 2008, 6:14 pm

    Oh my word, that is funny! An all too often seen occurance at my house. Not Nivea, but always something. Right now it is Vicks vaporub all over my wall and a picture I have had since I was 15, now ruined.
