Play Date and the Cookie Monster

We had a fun morning. We had a friend come over and stay the morning with us so his parents could go for an ultrasound to find out if he was having a little brother or a little sister!!!

They played pretty well together. He is about 7 months older than Harper. And MUCH more mellow and easy going. ha! I love that they were both in their fleecy pj's.
Isn't he cute? I loved this picture!
This was CLEARLY taken with my phone and not my camera but I'm sure he doesn't play with a teapot at home much. ha! I told him it was coffee so he wouldn't lose his man card. :-)
Harper missed her morning nap and normally doesn't nap in the afternoon but we both needed some rest so after he left I fed her lunch, gave her a bath and bottle and put her to bed and she slept for two hours! When she got up a package had come from my Uncle Bob and Aunt Linda so I let her open it.
They got her this cute outfit and shoes! We love them!! They also sent a nice donation for the Ronald McDonald House that we are excited about.

AND:

I almost didn't post this next part because I told Scott I imagined I would get lots of comments about what a bad mother I am but I remembered that my 2010 resolution is to blog for US and it was also TOO funny not to remember.

Harper has a drawer in the kitchen that she can play in. It has tupperware and her bottles and snacks and she is happy to play in it forever. So she was in it this afternoon and I went right next to her in our laundry room to load the dryer. I was just there for a minute but I realized that she had gotten quiet and went to check on her. I couldn't find her but I heard a noise coming from our pantry. The door was partially shut and the light was out but this little mouse had found the package of oreos on the bottom shelf and was helping herself:
I gave her a little taste of Oreo a week or two ago and she liked it so much when I put the package away she nearly turned purple she was so mad. I guess she remembered the goodness. I know it's just awful but I was laughing hysterically that she was double fisting the oreos.
(I should explain that I just happened to have the camera sitting out on the kitchen counter so of course I took this before I got her out of there. But I had to GRAB those cookies out of the hands of steel. She did not want to let go. And then Dawson took off with one and I had to open his mouth with both hands to get it out. I sort of think they may be working together as a team).
I'm thinking that next weekend when she gets her own cake - she is not going to have ANY problems putting it away! ha!

Oh please if anyone comments about your parenting for this they have NO sense of humour. If you want to hear of a story of true horror when mummy turned her back I could tell you a few- just remember I live in Australia and (hint) there are plenty of creepy crawlies here.

Karo said...

Oh my word Kelly! That is just too cute. The look on her face is like "oh man I gotta hurry before Mommy gets back!" LOL Too, too funny!
Karo

Amanda said...

Yes, like everyone else the double fisting Oreos (Double Stuff no less, your girl knows the good stuff!) with her "I've been good" jammies made me laugh out loud and share the story with my hubby. too cute!

Unknown said...

The most hilarious part is that she has on a shirt that says ... "I've been good".

Looks like she is her mothers own daughter ... loving some good ole Oreos!!

Very cute!

Addimando's said...

I Love love, LOVE! that picture of Harper eating the oreos... sooo cute. It's moments like that, that you just love being a parent. It's the best job ever! So glad to share your story.

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

Oh that is just about the cutest story/photo ever! She must have been so proud of herself!

C said...

Oh that is hilarious!!! That doesn't make you a bad mom at all:) I often run for the camera to capture moments like that before taking things away.
My 16 month old was too quiet in the kitchen the other day, and I walked in to find her sitting on the floor with a bag of BBQ potato chips, just going to town:) My mother-in-law loves those chips (from Trader Joe's) and had just been in town sharing LOTS of them with my daughter...so I guess she figured "Grandma's gone, I have to help myself." I laughed so hard:)

Veronica said...

The picture with Harper on the floor shoveling oreos had me LOL! Love it!

I've caught Audrey in the pantry going for it from time to time, but her latest thing is dumpster diving through our kitchen trash can! I finally had to go out and buy a new trash can tonight with a lid because my child seems to think that food from the trash is so yummy! :)

aimymichelle said...

oh my goodness! that is so stinkin cute and hilarious.

easternjourney.com said...

Harper's "oreo moment" is so funny! How did she know to go straight to the oreos at the bottom of the pantry? I'd say she'll be up for a chocolate birthday cake!

Father's Grace Ministries said...

So funny!

My Mum tells me the funny story that when I was little, I got into her food cupboard (no pantries back then!), opened up the custard powder and spilt it everywhere, then my nappy (diaper US) leaked, and I peed through it all-YUCK!!
Claire

Mrs. G said...

Love the oreo picture! We don't buy them because I can't stop eating them either

Sarah said...

THAT is hilarious! We had to move all the food off the bottom shelf of our pantry so Leah could play "safely". I love that you shared that!

Patsy said...

What an awesome moment to remember!! Thanks for letting us enjoy your precious moments!!

Pink said...

Priceless.....simply priceless!! YOu shoud send a copy of that pic to the makers Oreos!!

I love reading your blog and have followed and prayed for your family since Harber was born. I love that you are so real, dont change a thing! And if anyone thinks you are a bad mom because her daughter got into some cookies, then they need a life! There will be more and more things just like this happen! And I look forward to seeing the pics!

I can hardly believe your sweet Harper is already turning ONE!

Cindy said...

Kelly,
You are a great mom! Do not let anyone tell you different. That was a darling story and Harper is one smart baby. Harper has great instincts!!!Oreos are the bomb :)especially in oreo balls, yum

Lianna Knight said...

So hilarious Kelly!!! That gave me a HUGE giggle this morning :) Too cute!

Heather said...

This is hilarious! I had a similar moment with my little one. I made monster munch for my 7 y.o's class and spilled some M & M's on the floor. I thought I picked them all up. I went to the bathroom and when I came out my 11 month old was sitting on the floor, very happy with green, red & blue lips and hands :)

Bethany said...

That oreo story just made my day!!!!! Don't feel like a bad mom, feel like a NORMAL mom! My kids have done so many things like that and I try to write them down, but sometimes forget. One day when she's 18 and going off to college, you will cherish this memory and be so glad you wrote it down. Go Harper, enjoy those oreos now while you don't care how big your booty is!! ha!

Amy said...

that is seriously one of THE funniest things I have ever seen!!! I'm so glad you posted this - it made my day. I love the look on her face like, "what....haven't you ever seen a lady double fist some oreos before???"

Laurie said...

That is NOT bad but PRICELESS!!! If it makes you feel any better, I have pictures of both of mine covered from head to toe in Oreos. I even have a picture of Shawn when he feel asleep w/ 2 donut...one in each hand! At least she has good taste!

Stephanie said...

That is the sweetest thing I have ever seen! LOVE IT!!!!
If anyone has the guts to judge you they clearly aren't a Mother. We have ALL been there! I have my 15 mo old a lollipop as he was screaming at the store and I heard the woman behind me discussing that I gave a baby a lollipop. Like it was crack or something! :)
You are a great Mom and that is a HOOT!

Bridgit said...

Bad Momma ...NO! That story is hilarious ...reminds me of my cousins daughter at the beach one year ...caught in her grandparents room ...hidden by the bed ...with girl scout cookies ...eating as fast as she could shove them in!

Spicy Magnolia said...

That is totally awesome!! She's my kinda gal! :) She really does like oreos...I mean, look at that grasp. It totally has me smiling this morning. What kinda cake are you going to make her (or buy)?? I can't decide about Brennan's!!

Trish said...

That is hysterical! You never know what they are going to get into.

I like the looks on my kids' faces when I catch them doing something like this, but instead of getting mad I just crack up. They always look at me like I've lost my mind.

Great story!

Rachel said...

That is hilarious, Kelly! Especially considering what her shirt says :)

Nichole Fisher said...

Ha ha ha - she is too cute! I laughed out loud at that picture of her with the oreos. Time for a lock on the pantry door!

Susan said...

Kelly...the oreo picture is so funny. Harper looks like she has no idea what is going on around her...the oreos taste so good that anything could happen and she could care less! LOVE IT!!

Anonymous said...

Kelly, the pic of her and your description have me laughing more than ever before at 7:10am. What a riot!

I have a pic somewhere on my blog of our Meredith munching on toilet paper around age 1. I prefer Harper's choice in 'bad loot'!

P.S. It appears she might have been after a package of Keebler's too(?)...what a funny, funny girlie!

Joyce said...

I love the Oreo picture...and I think once a baby gets beyond the newborn infancy stage a dog quickly learns that a little person is their new best friend...who else eats right at their level?

CCO MOMS said...

that is hilarious.....love the moment. She was so enjoying herself. Don't ever think you are a bad mom for something like that. I can tell you it won't be the last. :)

Rachel said...

Trust me, if that's the worst thing that happens that makes you a bad mom then you are doing ok. She's a cutie and I hope she has a great birthday.

Leah said...

HAHAHA. The Oreo pics and story are hilarious. Your Harper seems to be A LOT like my little Perri, especially temperament-wise lol. Love her double fisting the cookies, and even more what her shirt says haha.

Maryellen said...

That is adorable . . . girl after my own heart !

Go Harper Go ! LOL

I bet she learned to be quieter next time HAH

Sandy said...

I LOVE it! How ironic that she is wearing her I've Been GOOD shirt! Ha,ha!

Allison said...

I love this picture! That is hilarious. Sounds like my two right before I had to get a pantry lock. They still sneak stuff. I love the innocence of childhood.

The Moser Fam... said...

She is just the cutest thing and I LOVE the oreo pictures and story. I can picture my little one doing the same exact thing! Harper is precious!!

Unknown said...

I am SO glad you shard that story and pictures!!! Hilarious. It is totally the real life of a wonderful mommy. I agree. I think our dog Camp and my baby boy are working together against me all the time! Happy Tuesday.

Beth said...

That is so funny and I love that her shirt says "I've been good" while eating oreos!

Kate said...

Oh my! Too funny! Yeah, whenever things get quiet you know something is happening that shouldn't be.... Happy New Year!

peter marie said...

I totally just laughed out loud when I saw that picture of her with the Oreos. That is hilarious!! For sure a picture you'll love when she's older. What a cutie. :)

The 'Ssippi Scoop said...

Oh my gosh! I was reading before I scrolled down the picture and when I hit the arrow button and that picture came up, I about fell out of the chair laughing. That is too darn funny and cute, I'm glad you just happened to have the camera sitting on the counter to get the shot. Bailey gets so mad when i take stuff like that away that she does turn purple and her forehead gets splotcy.

And then I just imagined you having to chase down Dawson while Harper sat without her oreoes.

Really, Kelly, that is priceless!

I didn't read that 200 plus comments before mine, but if there is a person out there that would leave you a bad comment about this, well then they obviously don't have a sense of humor or children. So I hope no one did!

http://thedays17.blogspot.com/2008/07/chocolate-syrup.html

oreos are only the beginning!!
:)

emily said...

i loved seeing the picture of harper and the oreos. you are not a bad mother, she just has a sweet tooth. wouldn't any girl do that if someone had been keeping those cookies away from her?

the story made my morning. :)

Natalie said...

Such a cute pic, too cute!

Carrie said...

That is a priceless picture! My 10 mo. old daughter also doublefists contraband items and also has grips of steel. I can't imagine that anyone would comment that this was a result of bad parenting! The girl just knows what she wants!

Stephanie said...

haha!! That is too cute!! Gotta love Harper!!

Katrina said...

I have followed your blog since harper was born, but have never left a comment. I have always wanted to start a blog,your post about blogging for yourself inspired me to get it done. Harper is the sweetest little girl. The picture of her eating oreos is hysterical. The girl has great taste in food.

*Katy* said...

How cute! I love the double fisting too! A girl that knows what she wants :)

Melissa's Thoughts said...

I found my son sitting on the bottom part of the refrigerator with the door open and the tube of butter beside him. He was eating it by the fist full. Talk about good mothering skills

Chris said...

CUTE! Cute! Cute! This made me laugh out loud. I can see one of my boys doing this too. Those cookies are just too delicious!

alang said...

That is hysterical!!! It is like her expression on her face is: Oh gosh I got to eat these before mom comes, oh gosh eat eat eat!!! You have to let them be kids, now I am not saying give them Oreos for breakfast unlike my husband's thinking!!! He is such a pushover ha ha!! I guess you will have 5 different hiding spots for sweets like us ha ha

KatieB. said...

That is so funny! I love that she's wearing her "I've been Good" shirt - priceless. That will be a funny story to tell when she's older.

Jennifer said...

hahaha - that oreo picture/story is hilarious!! I'm glad you captured the moment on camera before removing the oreos. Too funny!

I can't wait to see the pictures of her tearing into her cake! (o:

Rae said...

I never laughed so hard in my life. . .and I neve wanted an Oreo more. Thanks for sharing.

Margaret said...

omg i loved the oreo story. It is amazing how smart she is, how smart babies are, that they would know and remember that they liked something and then quietly eat it haha!! I think all women want to sneak into the pantry and do that now and then...:)

My favorite part was my mental image of you running after Dawson who had grabbed one hahah that is so cute of him! ha!

DJones said...

Adorable cookie monster! Cute memory that you will remember for ages! So glad you shared the pictures.

Mary said...

i dont normally comment but i wanted to this time- the picture of harper is priceless!! i laughed out loud!!!

Holly said...

Ok, the shirt make that picture priceless. And whoever thinks you are a bad mom for putting laundry in the dryer, just needs to get a life!

Kelley with Amy's Angels said...

As any girl knows, Oreos are nature's comfort food! Important to learn these things early.

Dania Efird said...

Too cute! I have a picture of Xavier when he was about her age sitting in the floor with a box of Kix dumped out in front of him, and he's just chowing down! He turned 9 last week and I love remembering things like that!

Cassie said...

Hahahahaha! She's hilarious! Oreos are yummy-who can blame her?

Heidi Winter Tracht said...

I am soooo glad you are blogging for YOUR FAMILY and not for the strange people in blog world that have no sense of humor and reality!!! The Oreo debacle is hilarious. I chuckled from the pictures to the thought of Dawson snagging his own treat to the two of them working together! Keep blogging about REAL LIFE - there is already enough fake stuff in this world! You are an incredible mom!

Memories, like those oreo filled fists, will keep you smiling when the mischievousness heightens - at say, adolescence! :)

Kathryn said...

I do beleive that was the funniest thing I have read in a while!! She's a smart chick! A girl can NEVER have enough chocolate:)

Danielle said...

It's too funny that she's wearing the "I've been good" shirt! ha ha Oh the irony

Melissa said...

That is too funny!

Kandi West said...

Mama's Girl, huh? :-)
Love it!

Sabrina said...

Oh my word! That is hillarious. I just laughed out loud. I can understand the girls love, I too have a passionate relationship with oreos.

Rachel said...

That is too funny! The best part of the Oreo shot is her shirt reads "I've been good all year!" Cute!

Michelle said...

That is the most precious cookie monster I have ever seen. :)

Nikki said...

The best part of the oreo story is the picture since her shirt says "I've been good all year!" lol

The Smith's said...

The picture with the oreos is so funny! I have caught both of mine on separate occasions sneaking snacks! And then sometimes they even start working together to find the snacks and I can't help but laugh sometimes! Glad she enjoyed them!!

Molly said...

Oh Harper! That's absolutely hilarious, a girl after my own heart, ha ha! This does NOT make you a horrible mother! I went to get my daughter up from nap today and she was naked in her bed with every toy in sight piled up in there with her, OH MY! They all do silly things like this, I grabbed my camera and snapped away as well, its what mom's do!!

Can't wait to see how Harper's birthday party turns out and how adorable she looks!

Much love!

Auntie D said...

Finding her with oreos is HYSTERICAL! I Love it! Thanks for sharing. :)

monkeysmom said...

Now that is funny! So glad your camera was near by so you could capture the moment - definitely one you don't want to forget! :)

The Thornton Family said...

Love it! So glad you shared! And just so you know, I would have let her finish what she had pulled out of the package. Dawson I understand, but you should have let Harper finish her cookies! :)

stacey

Jeanette said...

Good for her! She loves double stuffed :}

My youngest got caught with about 20 Hershey's kisses wrappers all around her. She was just shoveling them in before she got caught! We now know how many Kisses you can eat before you throw up.....

Paige said...

If anyone gives you a hard time about this post then just block them from your blog. That had to be the most hilarious story I have read in a long time....

I totally expected to see the blue Sesame Street Cookie Monster!

Thanks for keeping it real!

paige

Melissa said...

That is hilarious!!! I am an Oreo lover myself...and if you have seen my sweet little 10 month old Brynlee, I think she could probably throw down a few Oreos herself. She is my eatin' machine!!! Too cute! Your little Harper is just precious!!!

meeksmiles33 said...

I love the oreo story! You are NOT a bad mother!! It happens to us all! Glad you can laugh about it.

Confections Of A Bake-A-Holic said...

Omg! That is not horrible at all that is hilarious and something you will never forget! Thanks for sharing! Maybe you should get her a cookie and cream ice cream cake for her birthday since she loves Oreo's so much! Ha!

Mama Bear said...

that oreo picture is stinkin hilarious!!!!

Mary Madeline said...

So funny!!! I love a girl who is not shy about eating her Oreos!!!

Miss to Mrs said...

Don't you worry about those bad comments! This is really funny and I'm glad you shared. And boo to anyone who thinks differently!

Anonymous said...

That picture just made my day, I laughed so hard at that picture of her!!!

Trace Car Driver said...

that is TOO FUNNY! i am LOVING that oreo pic... my 11 month old son can also turn purple when throwing a fit, and he also has the strength of ironman when you try and pry something out of his hands, or worse, his mouth!!

thanks for sharing kelly. i love seeing precious harper and reading about ya'lls life.

southern love and prayers from alabama!

The Ormons said...

She is just like her mama huh. Loves those Oreo's. That is so great. I am also glad you are not going to worry about everyone else and blog what YOU want to blog. Its your personal journal. Thanks for the laugh this morning.

salliesweet said...

I seriously just laughed so hard my coworker had to ask me what happened. That first shot of her shoveling oreos made my day! I have tears in my eyes. My daughter is 16 months and I can SO see this happening to me also. Can't wait to see pics of her eating cake.

Beck said...

LOVE IT! Adorable pictures of the cookie monster in action :)

Sarah said...

I am so proud grabbing the camera to capture the Oreo moment! That is the best! I had a similar thing happen about a year ago and I'm very thankful that I laughed and grabbed the camera! Here's the link for the specific post. :)

BIDK said...

Ha! Good for her! :) I'm glad you made a picture!! That is too funny.
Isabel :)

Laura said...

That is hilarious and definitely one for the baby book!!

Sara Sexton said...

Kelly, I LOVE the Oreo pictures! That is classic and I'm glad you documented it. You're right...you blog for YOU don't let anyone's comments make you do anything differently. Every mom has at least one of those stories to tell! :)

Unknown said...

Girl, that oreo story is THE best! To top it off, her shirt says...I've been good!!! (HA!!)

Fun times!

Unknown said...

That picture of her with the oreos made me laugh out loud! She looks like she really was enjoying them! Oreos really are the best!

Watts Family said...

Holy Cow....that is the funniest thing ever!! Harper is my girl!! :) My parents used to call me the Cookie Monster when I was a child. I'm in my thirties now and have 3 kiddos of my own and they still make sure they have cookies when I come visit!! Hahaha Thanks for sharing!

Many Blessings,
Amanda

Jeff and Steph said...

That is hilarious!!! What a smart little munchkin!!!!!!

Kelly said...

Thanks for sharing the Oreo story. Thank goodness for your New Year's resolution. This was one of your best posts. You definitely would not have wanted to forget that moment you caught her in the Oreos!!! Precious.

Unknown said...

If only she had some milk to dunk the oreos. She is so funny! She knows what tastes good. What a dollbaby.
Her outfit is so cute. Heartstrings is my favorite place to find cute clothes for my boys, and they all coordinate.

Michele said...

I just had to comment; you are not a bad mother; this is hiliarious! All kids do things like this and she's just so cute. I'm sure it was hard to be "mad" at her..haha. Thanks for sharing!

The Smiths said...

How funny. You're not a bad mama at all! What's life without a few mishaps and Oreos?! Keep the cute stories comming!

TheFancyFritter said...

That's hilarious! She has good taste! :)

CourtneyC said...

Oh my goodness she is too cute with the oreos!!!

Val, Brax and Harper said...

better oreos that rat poison, right? now THAT might put you in the "bad mom" category... but oreos.... that's just hilarious! i love it! i especially love that you took a picture before prying them away from her! great post.

Elonda said...

A girl after my own heart! Great pictures!!!

phasejumper said...

That little boy has the cutest cheeks! Too funny about the oreos! My college roommates son did the same thing-only with Crisco!!

The Heath's said...

That is hysterical! Atleast she has excellent tatse when it comes to sweets!

Melissa said...

Oh how funny about the Oreos! You are NOT a bad mom at all....kids will find a way to get into stuff you never thought possible. That sweet girl has just learned already how good chocolate really is! And a few Oreos won't hurt her! I would've never said that with my now 7 year old, but I'm a lot more laid back with my 2 year old. The oldest one didn't get to have chocolate milk until he was 3 or 4, because I was afraid he wouldn't drink the plain milk anymore. Well, my 2 year old has had chocolate milk a couple of times, but he went right back to the white milk. I was really strict with the oldest one about what he ate, and it turns out the little one is a better eater, even though he gets treats that the other one never got. Love your blog, and thanks for keeping it real!

Anonymous said...

I love that she's wearing the "I've been good all year" shirt! I have a picture of my son wearing a shirt that says "My Momma thinks I'm special" from Bubba Gump, and he had just been in the fridge and busted about 10 eggs on the floor.

MiMi Magnolia said...

That girl knows what is good! Better keep her away from the Sonic vanilla cokes :-) At least we know she has great taste at an early age. :-)

Julie said...

Too funny and cute! What is even funnier is her shirt says "I've been good". LOL

Sonya said...

No one can resist a good double-stuffed oreo! That's so cute! I love that her shirt says "I've been good all year". Makes the picture a little ironic!

Clementsville: Population of 5! said...

oh this is hilarious Kelly!!! Harper is so smart and isn't it funny how their little minds work :)

the new outfit is adorable and I'm so glad Harper shared her toys with her friend :)

Katie

Melissa said...

Too funny! I agree, she could have been doing something much worse! She is too cute!

O Mom said...

So funny that her shirt say "I've been Good"

Kristy said...

Kelly, this is TOO FUNNY! I laughed so hard. Please keep those memories preserved-I'm so glad you're blogging for your family.

Jennjilla said...

Aww, I'm glad you had your camera close! That's awesome! A girl knows a good thing when she tastes it! :)

Brook said...

Anyone that would call you a bad mom should just be shut in a closet. I love the little oreo face that she has going on. You can't help it if the girl has taste :) Can't wait to see pictures of her eating her very own cake.

Jessie Weaver said...

That's hilarious. I am so glad you posted it! It's important for others to know you aren't perfect! My girl is forever getting into the pantry and trying to grab something she's not allowed to have. Like a paint can.

Michelle said...

How cute is she with her oreos!! Thanks for sharing!

Mary Louis Quinn said...

Hilarious! That picture made me laugh out loud! And if anyone would call that "being a bad mother" then they're either crazy or don't have kids themselves (because ALL kids will get into something they're not supposed to regardless of their mother)!

Larissa said...

That is too funny! Harper's a girl after my own heart. I HEART Oreos!!

khull05 said...

SO glad you opted to tell the Oreo story and post the pictures!!!! HILARIOUS! Girl knows what's good!

Stacey said...

She knows the good stuff when she sees it!

MandyJo013078 said...

Kelly - That is hilarious! I loved the shot of the double fisting the oreos plus Dawson snatching the cookies sounds like a riot! I would have been laughing and taking pictures as well! That is too cute plus when she is older you can remind her of the sneaking in the pantry to grab the oreos.

Ha ! Have a great day!
Amanda

Deidre said...

How funny! Kelly, years from now, you will be glad you posted pictures like this knowing your blog is to document your life and not worrying about what others think. Our kids getting into cookies is just the tip of the iceberg. Besides, she is so sweet shoving those in her mouth. How real that is. Wouldn't we all like to do it?? ha!

Laura White Photography said...

SO as you can see... EVERYONE has had a moment like this! It's priceless! I'm glad you were able to capture it and share it with us!!! THIS is the reason I LOVE you blog and read it as much as possible!

Don't stop sharing these moments! We can ALL relate. Just a few months ago I found my youngest (at the time he was 2 1/2)sitting in the fridge chugging the chocolate syrup! And BELIVE me I certainly took a picture of that!

Have a great day!

jenmom said...

The oreo pictures are too cute! She got caught with her hand in the cookie jar!
Quick question, where did you get the car Harper has? The ride on one that is. I noticed it in one of the playdate pictures. Our JennaBeth will be one in Feb. and I think she might love something like that!
Jennifer
jenmom1707@yahoo.com

Jennifer said...

That cracks me up!!! You are certainly not a bad mommy at all! We have all done the same thing. When my daughter was about that age she ate dog food. Oreos are much better!! That girl has some good taste!!

Lacy Mac said...

That is hilarious!! Love the irony of the shirt and the oreo goatee. :)

Jill said...

Bless her, girl just wanted some chocolate! That pic is hilarious!

Jen said...

That is so cute. And I love that her outfit says "I've been good all year." As if to say, I was good long enough to get the Christmas presents, but I couldn't resist any longer!

Whitney said...

I just laughed SO HARD at the oreo pictures! LOVE IT!!!! She is definitely a girl after my own heart!

Ashley said...

I died when I saw the oreo pic!!! Are girls are going to be 2 peas in a pod! STINKERS!

Love her! ;)

Meredith said...

If you get any negative comments from that post those people are crazy- I love that you posted it. It is such a "normal" thing for our little ones to get into stuff, and she looks so cute two fisting it.

angie said...

That is too funny! It looks like she is trying to shove the cookie in her mouth as fast as she can so you can't take it away!
What the perfect shirt to be wearing!
Thanks for the laugh!

Too funny!!! It is amazing what they find to get into and what they remember!!! They are to smart for their own good! Just wait it gets better with age...lol!

Keely said...

That is priceless. And it made my day.

Heidi said...

Haha what a girl! I had to laugh when I saw what shirt she was wearing too!

Kim said...

Kelly,
The Oreo story is just too cute!!! And so funny that she would think to go get in the Oreo's! Smart girl! Oreo's are mighty tasty!

Nicole said...

That is too funny! Reminds me of my daughter!!

Myself said...

Well somebody's got the right idea. Now I want Oreos. Harper, you lucky little thing.

Auntie Carrie said...

Those pictures are hysterical! If that's the worst thing Harper gets into when you aren't looking, you're in good shape! When I was about 18 months old my parents found me standing in the toilet (yes, IN it!). My mom laughed and left me there while she went to get the camera! After she took my picture and took me out of the toilet, I did it again! Hey...what do you expect?! She laughed AND took my picture! I thought she was proud of me :) The picture cracks me up everytime I see it.

You go Harper! Get those Oreos! Precious!

Lauren said...

Hilarious! Thanks for posting. A few oreos never hurt any baby. You need to blow up that picture of her eating the oreos for her rehearsal dinner someday. She is such a cutie pie.

Cody Jean said...

Hilarious! The girl's got good taste!

That's not a sign of a bad mom, just a sign of a toddler! Ours works with our dog too to do all kinds of sneaky things. :)

Elizabeth said...

I loved the story about the oreos!! It sounds just like something my daughter would do! Isn't it funny how they get so quiet when they are doing something they aren't supposed to do?

corriemae said...

Kelly you and Harper made my day!!
Love the picture with Harper, double fisted oreo monster and her shirt "I've been GOOD".
Oh and you are a wonderful Mom!!
((Hugs))

Katie said...

Such an adorable "Cookie Monster"! Did Dawson's face look like Harper's? Too cute!!!

Liberty Ruffles said...

I usually just lurk, but oh my gosh. That picture made me giggle. Sweet little harper who I've watched grow over this past year, getting into some trouble. Please, please don't hesitate to post more of this. Love it!!!!

Kelli said...

I was in tears with that picture of her double fisting!! Too funny!

FrouFrouBritches said...

Oh My Gracious! That is hysterical. I laughed out loud! I love the Oreo picture! Did she jump when you caught her with them? That's what my kids do when they know they've been busted with something they're not supposed to have. TOO FUNNY!

Taylor and Lindsey said...

I am DYING laughing here. That is too funny. Starting from an early age huh? LOL

Leah Scott said...

momma23 said...

That is so funny, and I love that she's wearing her "I've been good all year" shirt - are you SURE about that, Miss Oreos around your mouth as evidence?

Marie said...

I am laughing even as I write this,all girls love chocolate don't they, This has to be one of my favorite post about Harper, just the beginning of what she will get into while you are just stepping away for a second ,I can just see you grabbing Harper and chasing after Dawson LOL

Claire said...

Harper and I have the same reaction to unattended Oreos, it seems! :-)

Cxx

Heather and Travis said...

I am literally laughing out loud and have tears in my eyes. That is too, too funny and Harper is just precious! That girl has such good taste!

Abby said...

Oh my goodness! That oreo picture is priceless! How precious. She knows where the goods are:)

Unknown said...

I love it! My son did the same thing when he was about Harper's age! Those are the best pictures!!!

Stephanie said...

That is the funniest thing ever!!! She is a smart little girl and looks totally oblivious to the fact that she had done anything wrong. Just priceless. :) So glad you blog about your life as it is. It is so much sweeter that way!

Sarah said...

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! The "icing on the cake" is that her shirt says "I've been good" HA!!! :)

Love pics with little boy friend. :)

Thanks for sharing!

Sarah said...

P.S. I love how she has bows to match her PJ's! :)

Jess said...

I rarely comment, but regularly read you blog. I love seeing what Miss Harper is up to and it makes me excited to know what to expect with my Harper (she's 6 months now). I LOVE that you posted her Oreo treasure! And most of all that you have decided to blog for YOU and not the world. You are a WONDERFUL mom. Oreos or not!

KateO said...

so cute! Now, why would that make you a bad mom? We've all been in a similar situation before. I left my boys unattended for 2 min. while I switched the laundry over and I came back to nail polish on the younger boy and on his truck (and my hardwood floor). I didn't even know I had nail polish...whens the last time I used that????

You are NOT a bad mother! My daughter did the same thing with one of those big tubs of Animal Crackers...she dumped them out and ate the off the floor!

My camera was no where near by, but I found it and took a picture anyway!

She is adorable and this post made me laugh out loud!

Amanda M. said...

LOVE it! That is SO awesome!

Darla said...

Ha ha--the Oreo escapade is hilarious!! Made even more funny by the shirt she was wearing!!

Faith said...

Oh my, girlfriend with the oreos is hilarious!!! So glad you got that photo op!

The Family Lewis said...

I just love the little Cookie Monster! :)

Courtney @ One Fine Wire said...

Oh my goodness. The girl's got good taste if she already likes oreos ;)

Lucila said...

I loved this post! My favorite parts were the Dawson and Harper were working as a team and she was wearing a shirt that says "I've been good all year". Well, it's a new year! No need to be good anymore! So cute!

HappyascanB said...

HILARIOUS!!!! I was reading this while in the doctor's office, and I laughed out loud at Harper's face with oreos! Precious stuff right there!!!! Thank you so much for being REAL and sharing it with all of us!

Susan said...

Love, love, love this post. Harper is so innocent looking double fisting those Oreos. When my sister was not much older my mom found her sitting on top of the refrigerator eating the chocolate icing off a chocolate cake that was in a cake container up there. My sister is 53 now and we still laugh at her over that. A woman will do most anything for chocolate!

Charla (SHar-la) said...

I think it's hilarious and absolutely something you will want to document so I'm glad you blogged about it! I LOVE the pic of her stuffing away and especially that she's wearing a shirt that says, "I've Been Good All Year!" Ha! That girl knows her cookies! :)

Ashley said...

That is too funny!
Harper is cute with all that chocolate around her mouth.

Rhonda said...

CLASSIC!!! And I love that Dawson is just as sneaky. What a cute cookie monster.

Lulu said...

OMG I am dying of laughter!! I love the oreo story and pictures, do NOT feel guilty or bad at all. She is so stinkin' cute. It's amazing how smart they are, she definitely remembered the oreo goodness and where you put them :) So funny!

Julia said...

Oh my, that is too funny! Don't feel bad, I caught my 10 month old doing the same thing not long ago. You can't help but laugh at moments like that!

riespzs said...

That is about the funniest post I have read yet. That girl knows what cookies are America's favorite!

Kara said...

No "bad mom" comments here... heck you found her before she at the whole package, so I think that's pretty good!

Brandi said...

I love that she is wearing her "i've been Good all year" shirt! Just too funny! She saved up her goodness for this one naughty moment! Love it!

Lori Wilson said...

I loved the picture of the oreos. That is one of my favorites.

Erin said...

Oh Kelly you are so far from being a bad momma! Don't be silly!
