Washing machine, dustbin and the case of missing cupcakes !!



Last weekend, my husband found a mouse in our washing machine.  Before you ask me if it was dead or alive, let me clarify - it was of the computer variety.  Now that I’ve killed the suspense, let me explain how the lifeless piece of electronics got inside our washer. It is once again my naughty 18 month old. Smera’s latest fascination is depositing random things into the washing machine and the waste bin. 

Oh, there is another development that has kept me busy over the last few weeks. My Gym routine that includes cardio to yoga and zumba to pilates – I am thoroughly enjoying it all (not!).  To add to the misery I was inducted to the new lifestyle by a sadistic and torturous personal trainer. It’s no surprise then I wait for my cheat (or ch-eat!) day – where you are allowed to eat (in moderation) whatever you want.

In the excitement, to cheat I bought lovely cupcakes only to find them resting in my dustbin. The culprit was none other than Smera. It's great that Smera is learning all about the use of dustbin at her playschool. Think they should teach her next how she should not be throwing the cupcakes in the dustbin on a cheat day.

But to hear the story that takes the cake, we need to rewind a bit and go back to the moment my husband discovered the mouse in the washing machine. Pulling the mouse out to the washer, he asked me to guess what he found in there. I told him what ever it is would not beat what I found in there the previous week.

He said 'Go on, what did you find?'
' A diaper', I answered.
'You mean, a used one?' He followed it up?
'Yeah' I quipped.
There was a pause and he retorted
'How used?'
I said ' You don't want to know'

There was a longer pause after that!

  1. Haha. LOl. A diaper ?

    And I think you are not understanding here, You little princess Smera is too concerned about your health that she is trying to maintain your diet even on the cheat day, as you call it. See, you got an intelligent daughter, I'd say.
    I wonder what more are to come in the future. :P
    And cleanliness comes next. I think she is learning it right and too quick.

  2. I really want to meet Smera. A 18 month old girl who makes her dad sleep and puts things in washing machine (especially used diper) is really cute. If I can't meet her, I would like to see her. Please upload a photo of her in next post you write about her . . .

    I go with ajaykontham. Smera has infact helped you both. To restrict the diet and to restrict the time you sit in front of the system :p ha..ha..ha....

    But never a kid opening a washing machine. The photo looks cute. You have to keep a watch on her always!

  23. So cute! These kids can and will drive you up the wall. But, I was relieved to read that it was the mouse of the computer family. I can't even begin to imagine what a dead rat can do to a washing machine. Enjoyed reading about Smera!
