#NaBloPoMo Day 12: Life With An Almost-Toddler

Happy November 12th, more popularly known as Day 12 of NaBloPoMo.  Today’s theme is Photograph.  You can go ahead and raise your hand if you just started humming some Ed Sheeran.

When I drafted my NaBloPoMo list, I thought it might be helpful to have a few light days here and there, because blogging every day is no joke!  So after a few days of heavier posts that have nothing to do with #cutekids, I thought today I would share a photograph that is a little more true to the actual title of my blog.

As Ell-Bell narrows in on her first birthday, she is becoming much more toddler-like.  And boy, if I can’t already tell that she’s going to be trouble.  I think most parents know that once babies turn mobile, you can only do anything in 5-second increments.  But I swear, I was only looking in the bathroom mirror long enough to put a SINGLE bobby pin in my hair when I turned around to behold this:


Mom fail!

And yes, I probably should have taken the toilet scrubber out of her hand instead of reaching for the camera.

And yes, my bathroom is disgusting and the toilet paper roll needs refilling.  Give me a break, ok? I’m busy trying to churn out a blog a day over here.

Until next time,

  1. This whole image is hilarious though! And you know what… good on you of getting a snap of a memorable moment. Found you through the NaBloPoMo hashtag on Twitter and your picture made me smile so I clicked on over. 🙂

  2. This one made me laugh, thank you! And I cringe at the words ‘mom fail,’ they simply perpetuate the unnecessary shame mothers put on ourselves and one another for no good reason. I’d rather label these moments something like ‘kid mischief win of the moment!’ 😉
