If you give the moosh to daddy he will likely take her out for ice cream.

(But who cares? You’re sick and want to take a nap.)

If the moosh sees ice cream she will likely want chocolate.

Dark chocolate.

If the moosh gets dark chocolate ice cream she will want to eat it on the way home.

Only dad didn’t realize the moosh was wiped.

And that she’d fall asleep in her dark chocolate ice cream.

Dad didn’t get a picture of the moosh asleep in her dark chocolate ice cream.

But we got a picture of her awake in it.



  1. But if you wash the moosh, then she will be clean.

    And when she is clean, then Mommy will need a break and give her to Daddy.

    And if you give the moosh to Daddy, well, he will likely take her out for ice cream.

  2. hilarious! & adorable.
    did she lick her face for the rest of the night???

  8. “Toddlerisms” is a great, great word.

    Most toddlerisms i read about make me convinced I’m doing right by not getting pregnant so soon. Your toddler’s toddlerisms, however, make me hope that my toddlers’ (when and if, etc.) are as lovely.

  16. Um, you should spend less time blogging and more time worrying if Moosh is lactose intolerant and the seats in your car are stain resistant.

  17. First of all, I hope Marty is kidding.

    Moosh is so cute and looks so proud of her chocolate face. I love it!

Last year we had a pancake breakfast & gave everyone “If You Give A Pig A Pancake”. Today it is “If You Give A Pig A Party”. Next year I’m doing nothing. This all stresses me out.
