Spilled milk

Friday, 29 April 2005

I poured the milk for my 2 year-old girl more vigorously than the lightweight plastic cup could handle and it skittered away, spilling a considerable amount of cow juice on the counter and floor. She was watching.

She said, “Ohhhhhh, no. Goddamnit.” She then repeated it 15 times. My laughter didn’t help abate the count.

My wife was somewhat angry at me for encouraging her by laughing but besides the incredibly cute tone of voice she put into it I considered it a major victory reflecting changes in behavior on my part in the last 6 months that she hadn’t said, “Fuck!”
