holy shitpants**

the monster has escaped. the t-rex is loose!

our usual morning routine..for as long as i can remember…was Isabella calling from her room..”Mama! I’m awake! come and get me! i wanna watch (s)Toy Story! i needa make a peepee! I want some chockomilk!”

last night, however, this ALL changed.

I was minding my own business, enjoying a lovely perfect evening alone with the Lakers/Celtics game (awe.some. now, let’s make this clear, i’m not a HUGE Celtics fan- although i DO want to stuff Leon Powe into my pocket and take him home and make him dinner. something – i really just want the Lakers to suffer, since they knocked the Spurs out of the playoffs…)

and with So You Think You Can Dance (Katee and Joshua! love love love)

and trying to figure out which i prefer…plurk or twitter (am still undecided)


and with season 2 of How I Met Your Mother

and with a grande nonfat one splenda iced latte (or is it??)

and then i heard a noise. a strange thump. and then a creak.

and then i found this.

a little half-asleep monster, deliriously walking down the steps. circa 10pm. so, i picked her up, put her back in her bed and closed the door. lather, rinse, repeat, circa 10:30pm.

oh, joy of joys. bugger knows how to open her door. i need a drink.

**not to be confused with this shitpants

  1. Lakers/Celts:
    I am SO bummed. I was watching the second quarter when I started fading in and out, and woke up to see Farmar shoot the 3 to end the 2nd. I looked at the score and decided to go to bed instead of watch. Damnit.

    Can she work those door knob cover thingies?

  2. You’re on Plurk too? I wondered if I should bother, but the consensus seemed to be that it was just like Twitter?

    Or am I out of the loop? Again? Probably.

  4. “holy shitpants”

    Those two words, combined, CRACK.ME.UP.

    Hmm… perhaps you should install a harder-to-open doorknob?

  5. This is why we have two baby gates stacked one on top of the other in Oliver’s doorway.

    Also – what the fuck is PLURK?!

  6. You need those door handle cover thingies to keep her in her room at night! Is it bad that I still do that with my 5 1/2 year old? Really it’s because I worry he’d go downstairs in the middle of the night and turn on the stove or something…or ahem…see mommy and daddy wolfing down the junk food they don’t know we have in the house…

  7. I don’t know about her, but I.can’t. work the doorknob thingies. So I can’t use them in our house because we’d be trapped in a room or something until the Canadian got home.

    Maybe you should talk to your barista and have her slip a little something extra into your latte before you head home for the night. She seems to be good at it anyway, put her to good use. heh

  8. So glad I’m not the only parent putting those “safety” door knobs on the inside of boy’s room to keep him in the room! Usually I just threaten to close the door – he knows he can’t open it & the threat is all it takes.

  9. what are plurks and twitters?do you need a cellphone for those?maybe bella needs the drink not you just kidding.

  10. WE have a baby gate up which the “baby” is perfectly capable of climbing but doesn’t. Ordinary doors cannot hold her.

  12. I wish my daughter would sleep with her door closed. For some reason, she thinks it is a fate worse than death for her bedroom door to be closed. grrr.

  13. Awww, what an adorable sleepy monster! Btw, can we still be friends if I say I don’t really *get* the whole Twitter craze? Also, I have no idea what Plurk is!

  15. I side with Plurk because it isn’t blocked at work. Yet. And I like how you can have little conversations.

    And Twitter is always busted.

  17. I love that you had the presence of mind to grab the camera to catch her in the act. And the perfect sleepy, guilty expression on her face.

    I started a Plurk account and then didn’t use it.

  18. Oh how I love that you refer to you kidlets at shitpants. You seriously rule.

    I’ve not ventured into Twitter land (b/c I’ve heard it’s a bit crack-like in its addictiveness). But I like the sound of Plurk and I like the logo better. I’m very scientific and superficial in choice-making, see? 🙂

  19. I imagine that’s one of the worst feelings—shit, she can get out of her bed WHENEVER SHE FEELS LIKE IT.

    Comment by She Likes Purple on June 13, 2008
  20. Yup. Not a cool time. And of course it goes on for like YEARS!

    I found twitter…but still confused, and there’s something else out there..now I’m screwed for sure.

  21. Bottoms Up…I’ll drink with you from a distance. Sounds like a plan to me.

  22. That little stinker! Good thing she’s cute!

    I love SYTYCD. I like Twitch, the guy with braces (like me) and there are a few others. I was sad to see Raven go home though..

    Comment by Ruby on June 14, 2008
  23. Oh… I am just too emotionally exhausted to deal with either Plurk OR twitter…

  24. Sounds like a day in my life. While you are getting that drink, do you mind pouring me one as well? I’d like mine straight up please.

    As for twitter or plurk…I’m going twitter all the way. Plurk is just annoying even though I have an account…lol.

    Comment by Domestic Diva on June 15, 2008
  25. Remind me again why I never had kids?! Ha!

    I Twittered for a while but it was too much work to keep up with.

  26. I have heard that one of those spongy, elastic cords bungee cords with the hooks on the ends attached to an adjacent door handle works wonders to keep the door closed… not that I’ve ever tried it..

    And Twitter scares me.

  27. Awww, she is SO cute! Now I would hate to be interrupted from some prime tv time, but it’s hard to get upset at that!

  28. We put a few wooden bead necklaces around the doorknobs of our girls’ rooms. Works better than a bell on their collar. And, we get less stares from strangers that way.


    Comment by Swirl Girl on June 16, 2008
  29. I am pro-Twitter.

    Don’t like that Plurk is not connected to anything else (LIKE YOUR CELL, HELLLOOOO????) and is very hard to read.
