Mischief maker

"HELLO guys! Wanna hear about some of my latest mischief???"

I intend to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in a couple of years, and that requires a substantial amount of training. I started my programme by practicing with the front-room table. Pretty impressive stuff! Mama's vintage 70's salad bowl didn't think so though. Don't grown-ups just make such a fuss about nothing? You'd have thought that instead of taking this photo, Mama could have saved her sacred bowl instead???!!! Fortunately, I know how to squirm out of trouble ... a coy mischievous look in her direction INVARIABLY works. She's such a sucker!

Mama collects Pippa dolls. Its a strange hobby, but she had Pippa dolls as a girl and keeps her precious collection in a very safe place far from my mits. Well, that's what SHE thought!!!

My meanie Mama whipped them out of my grasp before I could even play with them (loud grunt of disgust) ... I got my revenge with one of my FAVORITE tricks though .... (mischievous giggle)

I like to wait until Mama has just got me out of the bath and dressed my in my spinkiest and nicest-smellingest pyjamas

with an air of innocense, I discretely reach for a spoon ...

and hey presto I have added a whole new dimension to the term "clean out of the bath"

The spoon invariably gets snatched off me though (snarl)
so I read the Teletubbies book Mandorallyn sent me instead

I would wash my face myself ... I just haven't quite got the hang of getting those tissue things out of their packet (note the funky T-shirt Gracie???!!!)

This is one of my summit meetings with my brothers

where we plan forthcoming mischief ... they are certainly a great inspiration to me.

I was mischievous enough a few nights ago to contradict another one of those silly diagnosis that the Doctors gave me ... declaring that I would not be able to eat solid food until I was a lot older, if at all. That is was part of my ‘syndrome’…

What a load of kodswallop!!! Mama served pizzas to the boys (their Friday night treat to go with the film we hire!!) and I DEMANDED that Mama give me a slice. I mean come on, a Princess has to know a little about Pizzas to appreciate the grander things in life, right? Now I noticed Mama looked a bit puzzled because she is used to feeding me puree with a spoon. I gently nudged her in the right direction by pointing at the pizza and then pointing at my mouth. See!! Who needs words when body language will do the trick??? So Mama fed me a whole slice of pizza (four-cheeses – it was heavenly!) and I chewed my way down the entire slice! Mama is still jumping around in joyous amazement! (come on Mama, its only a slice of pizza, get real!!)

There is a downside to permanently performing miracles of this kind though.
Mama was so excited at the accomplishment that, unlike with the salad bowl episode above, she clean forgot to take photos. So I'll just have to leave the incident to your wild imaginations!!!
.....What do you mean, "asleep already" ...

wouldn't YOU be exhausted after all that mischief??!!

Wow Princess Abagail!

I have not graduminated to eating the pizzas yet. I am still eating the strained peas. The pizzas sounds much yummier than the strained peas. Maybe I should try it.

I like getting into mischief too, but I have no oldish brothers to get into it with so I have to do it with the cats. The cats are not as much fun because they have no thumbs. Maybe you can give me some tips.



P.S. This is Connor's mom. Do NOT give Connor any tips. He gets into enough trouble on his own.

Abigail said...

I love stories of you defying those darn doctors!! You enjoy that pizza!! Maddie LOVES pizza, so good choice for a first solid!! And all those other achievements, you should teach Maddie to do some climbing! Her mommy would love if she'd climb herself in and out of bed on her own!

Kait T said...

Abigail, you are too adorable for your own good! You do a good job running your Momma around!

I am overjoyed at the thought of that pizza in your tummy! Way to go, Princess!

I also especially like some of the furin words you use - kodswallup - yea, that's a great word! And spinkiest - chkl'ing all the while I key it into this little box.

Love your smiles. And perhaps your Moma will let you play with her Pippa dolls when you are older. Love, Dr. B.

Whew, what a day! It's good to keep your mama hopping. That's how she gets exercise. Well done!

And kudos on your first pizza. Delicious, yes?

Hey Princess!

Just wanted to let you know I left you and your mom an award over at my blog. :)

Yay! Abigal. Great job chewing your pizza. Hannah would love some tips on that. And on eating in general.

I want to wake Robert and tell him about it. I'll be good though and wait.

Congradulations again.
