Day – 30: A Day in the Life of Little A

Today I got in trouble with my mom because I said this:

In case it’s not clear – I called her a douche bag. This is why.

I woke up this morning at 7:45, was mommy there? No. Even after I called her for a whopping 32 seconds – I was alone – with nothing better to do than sample my own poop, which is yucky.

She caught me this morning and she wasn’t happy.

“NO!! NO we don’t eat our poo poo my little nom nom, my little honey bunny, my little Engoogles.”

I keep trying to explain to her that NONE of those are my name.

Ske kept making disgusted faces at me saying I was a “stinky binky” as she pawned me off onto my father. Does she actually think I don’t understand what she’s doing? What happened to unconditional love – even through severely soiled diapers.

My dad gets me – he understands my needs. After cleaning me he passed over my two essentials – my orange juice and my leap pad. Daddy knows how good that first juice box is in the morning.


A man’s gotta know what’s happening in the world right?

Of course – my mom just couldn’t deal. “He has to go brush his teeth, come on – NOW! He has to go to daycare, he’s going to be late, blah blah blah.”

What a nag. But I love her.

Or so she makes me tell her about 50 million times a day.

Anyways, it’s time to start the daily grind.

Dad gets me ready for school and then has me brush my teeth last – out of spite. He likes to make mommy angry, I think it makes him happy.

daily grind

I hate day care. The toys smell funny. Ok fine, I’ll tell you a secret – I hate daycare because it makes me miss mommy and daddy and the doggies. So this morning I made a wish that I wouldn’t go to daycare.

And it worked.

Mommy said I could stay home. I did my happy dance – and to make it up to her, I decided to be a good boy. Ok that’s a lie. I didn’t wish. I kept pouring my juice on my shirts out of protest until she caved – and that worked.

Ok – well not only that, I also hijacked her phone and took pictures that look like this – and THAT worked.


I made it worth her while.

I cleaned the house for her.


And then I fed the dogs – by pouring their food on the floor for their convenience. Although mommy wasn’t too happy with that. Sigh, everyone’s a critic.

feed the pups

Mommy then asked me what I wanted for lunch, I told her I wanted square cheese – so she made grilled cheese. If I was at a restaurant I would have pulled a Gordon Ramsay and thrown the food on the floor in outrage.

My daddy then tried to coerce me to take a nap. As he was getting me ready, mommy walked in and saw me doing this:


Needless to say – she lost it. She stormed out of the room after she yelled at daddy – I think she said something along the lines of “he learned that from YOU!”

After I “woke” up, it was back to just daddy and me. I was playing match the shapes and daddy was playing Star Craft – Heart of the Swarm.

And I’m pretty sure mommy was downstairs working on her 15th cup of coffee and 2nd bag of Reese’s

Dinner was yucky – so I fed it to the dogs. Daddy gave me Cheerios instead.

So I decided to make it rain Cheerios – what? I’m two. You would do the same. Well most of you would – with the exception of my mommy who doesn’t believe in happiness.

makin it rain

Remember how I told you that mommy lost it earlier?

Yeah, that was nothing compared to how pissed she was when she saw me (joyfully) tossing Cheerios into the air.

“NO!! Pick those up NOW!”

So I pointed my finger at her…


and called her a douche bag.

I got in big trouble. Even though I don’t know why – daddy was laughing really hard.

Needless to say  – I was sent to bed early.

nighty night

He’s completely potty trained, but when he wants to play in the bath, he’ll crap his pants on purpose so I let him bathe. And so many more two-year-old-things that I’m sure you’d understand. Love this post!

  10. I love how you write this from a child’s view. When my son was two, he was embarrassing me in a public restrooms by saying, “Mommy, are you going Poopie? GOOD GIRL! I’m so proud of you!” Kids! They really are too funny.

  21. And it only rained cat toys in my house. I am clearly missing something. : )

  22. Had a class focused on mediators of stress a few days ago and one of the biggest things that came up was humour–especially for those caring for children. (I guess laughter really is a great medicine!)

  25. That was beyond Redonkulous! Glad I was not enjoying a beverage, as it surely would have come out my nose and soiled my tablet. Great read!

  33. Friggin’ hilarious! Like your write a post as the clueless and super-naughty two-year-old tactic. Made my day, mama.

  34. Reblogged this on I Don’t Have Time to Write This! and commented:
    Just discovered a funny mommy blogger. This post cracked me up.

  35. I wish I could love not just like this, we have so much to look forward to when LO turns two!

  36. Well written, and brilliantly funny – all the more so since those of us with kids can readily identify with the situations you describe – having experienced them ourselves ! 😆

  37. So funny! You captured every moment perfectly.

  38. As parents we always seem at a complete loss as to our offspring antics. Where did he? Well who taught her that? They heard your brother say it?….but they often mimic us, the parent person in charge. And their version of us is always way better then the original. Lol. Good luck. My oldest is 17, my baby is 8. So I’m in between with the 11 and 13 year olds acting the fool.

  39. Hahaha just the laugh that I needed!

  40. Not sure if you got my other nomination, but here’s another because your humor and your storytelling inspires me 🙂

  41. This was awesome. Darling kiddo.
