The honeymoon is over

Last night I was starting the laundry and from the living room I heard "Uh-oh."

Uh-oh
says Husband, laughing.

Ouchie! declares Bean.

Can you show mama?
asks Husband.

I heard the clomp clomp clomp of Bean's little feet as she ran down the hall saying Ouchie Ouchie.

When I looked down, I saw Bean holding out her stuffed monkey. This monkey had an unfortunate run in with our dog Pup quite a few months ago, and since that incident his head had been rather poorly attached. I could see now that the head had come clean off, and Bean offered up the poor headless body with great concern.

Ouchie she said.

Oh it's okay, Bean
I replied and kissed the poor beheaded monkey on his gaping neck wound.

All better
I said, handing the lifeless corpse back to the Bean.

Bean gave me a look as if to say Are you out of your f*$king mind? His f*&king head fell off! before walking away, leaving me holding the pathetic body of her forlorn little toy.

I thought I had 13 more years before Bean was rolling her eyes at her totally lame mother, but it's looking like the honeymoon is already over.

Oh noes! If I were closer, I'd offer to sew the head back on, but I'm sure you'll manage to take the monkey to the hospital and give her stiches. Then finish off with a kiss, and it will be all better.

That's hilarious. =)

And my kids give me that "What the f--?!, mommy??!!" look all the time.

That's a smart little bean you have there :)
Hope the monkey's head gets re-attached soon
