Recipe for Disaster

Take one wound up two-year old

Add in bright lights, too much screaming, and Chuck ‘E Cheese tickets.

Throw in a pinch of exhaustion from a missed nap.

Slide down three bites of over-priced pizza.

And make every game toddler friendly.

Then, mix all of the ingredients together and you will get…

Toddler inside a machine.


“But how did she get there?”

“Where were the parents when it happened?”

“Well certainly her mother wasn’t watching her! She must have been smoking cigarello’s and hooking in the parking lot while her husband drank from his 2-4 in the trunk! There’s no way a toddler would ever do that if they were being watched properly and been taught how to act appropriately. Unbelievable.”

That’s my toddler.

She runs like lighting.

Oh, and I was right there.

Yelling, flailing, and chasing her.

I ran all the way up that ramp (which is pretty long and takes stealth), tripped on the terrain, caught my shirt on a wayward screw, and might have shown side boob to DJ the waiter.

It was my sausage arms that kept me from yanking her from her glass cage.

I needed someone with tiny bird arms that would reach.

Someone whose arms were like twigs.

Arms I could break like a chicken wing.

So I called Brian.

    OMG. No way! That is too funny. Which I’m sure was exactly what you were thinking when it happened. Seriously, though. So freaking funny. That just made my whole day.

      She’s a handful.. no more Chuck E Cheese until she’s too big to fit in the machines.
