So we got this new lens – a prime lens, it’s called. Which works differently than our other lenses. There’s no zoom, for one thing, and you have to focus it yourself? I think? Anyway, it’s hard to get used to.
But I’m trying. I just finished the most amazing online photography course and am having SO MUCH FUN.
But this lens is tricky.
So anyway, I was futzing around with the camera during R’s nap. Pax was up (they are on opposite schedules, GROAN) and had climbed up on the step-stool so he could stand at the counter and play with whatever.
Whatever, in this case, being my full mug of luke-warm hot chocolate/egg nog excitement gone slightly awry (no, no alcohol involved).
So Pax grabbed a spoon and would stir it, taste it, then shriek. Then stir, taste, shriek. And the kid continued to play like this for roughly 20 minutes straight as I snapped a few pics.
Then things started to get ugly.
He finally realized that mugs have a pour feature.
And this face was when he realized that there was a waterfall of chocolate hitting his little feet:
As I ran around like a maniac and tried to clean up the floor, Pax realized that there was another fun toy left out for him by his idiot mother:
That hand (excuse the blurriness) is covered in unsweetened cocoa powder, people. I had left out the can of cocoa powder.
I wipe him down and change him and run out to quickly find the broom. But the little sucker is fast. This is what I return to:
You lookin’ for this, Mum?
Yes. Yes I was.
So I let him play happily (hearing, at one point, a spitty PBBBBBTTTT!!! after he shoved unsweetened cocoa powder into his mouth – live and learn, kid) until he was done playing. And for Pax, done is DONE. He’s really quite clear on this point.
Mike was coming home late – he had a
holiday boondoggle business meeting that involved cocktails (Oh, the trials of Mr. Important)…so I was seriously tempted to leave this for him:
For the record, I did NOT.
In related news, we are out of wine.
