The Bubbers Monster pleads: Not Guilty

August 8th, 2008

“Hey sweetie,” I said to the Bubbers king earlier this morning, “Now that we’re both ready for the day, how about we go play some music for a little while?”

“Sure, Mom!” he replied, swinging his left arm Wooga style and bookin’ it for the living room.

I grabbed my guitar and sat down on the couch.

Then I swung the guitar up onto my lap.

Clunk, clunk!

“What was that?” I asked, looking down at my guitar.

“What was what?” the Bubbers king asked nonchalantly, climbing on the opposite couch and attempting to launch himself over the arm rest onto the end table.

“That clunk, clunk,” I said, “My guitar made a clunk, clunk sound.”

I gently shook the guitar.

Clunk, clunk, clunk.

“There it is again!” I cried, “Didn’t you hear that?!”

“No, I didn’t hear anything,” Bubbers replied calmly as he slid across the top of the end table and reached for the nearest window sill.

“Something’s not right,” I said and tipped my guitar upside down and shook it around some more.

All of a sudden, something came into view.

And all of a sudden, Bubbers was by my side.

“What on earth!?!” he cried out with dismay.

“You had measuring spoons inside your guitar, Mom!!!”

“Holy smokes!” I cried in return, “You’re right!  How on earth did measuring spoons get inside my guitar!?”

The Bubbers king jerked and slowly looked at me, “How should I know?”

I just looked at him.

“You don’t…..  You don’t think I put the measuring spoons in your guitar do you?!” he implored sweetly.

“I don’t know, son,” I calmly answered, “Did you put them in there?”

“I most certainly…..”

“….. Did not!!!”

“Hee, hee…..  Did you see that, Mom?”

“Those measuring spoons just fell right in there!”

Trying to hide a smile, I replied, “They sure did, son, they sure did…..”

Then I turned the guitar upside down and shook out the measuring spoons again.

“Okay, son,” I said as I handed the measuring spoons back to him, “You can play with these while I play some Sarah McLachlan.”

“Sure thing, Mom,” he said as he grabbed the measuring spoons and took off Wooga style.

I started to sing and play until I saw the Bubbers monster out of the corner of my eye.

He was headed straight for his Dad’s guitar that was still in the stand.

And before I knew it, he stuffed the measuring spoons inside that guitar!!

“Holy smokes, Littles!” I cried as I set down my guitar and picked up Charming’s, “Contrary to popular belief, measuring spoons do not go inside guitars.”

I flipped over Charming’s guitar and started shaking.

“Measuring spoons are for baking, not for sticking inside Daddy’s….. guitar…..”

I paused.

And stared.

“Are you kidding me?!?!” I cried out in disbelief.

“Holy smokes, Little Man,” was all I could say as I shook my head, “I was wondering where my cooking spoons had gone.”

LOL! Kids are so funny! Leonora is constantly stealing things from my kitchen drawers. Since we don’t have any guitars to put them in, I usually find them with all their play kitchen stuff.

Hilariously cute! :) You know that phrase that people say when they can’t find something? “It can’t have just walked off by itself…” Well, I’m afraid that statement is null and void when you have a toddler. :)

Ha ha. Little kids just can’t help themselves. Holes are for putting things into.

That is just too funny. I love your creative writing. What a cute little guy you have. He looks quite a bit like your brother.

Heidi | 8/10/2008 8:53 pm

Welcome, Darcy!!! I’m so glad you visited and liked my post! :)

And that’s crazy that you said Bubbers looks like my brother. I never realized it until you said that!

And thanks for thinking he’s cute! We sure think so. :):)

How come I didn’t know you played guitar? Those pictures were adorable too! Oh, and just in case you were wondering your dress is almost done, I just have to put the top and bottom together. :)

The guilty always return to the scene of the crime! Cute!

That was the funniest thing ever!

Love to hear you can play the guitar, how nice it would be to hear you both. Bubbers has decided he likes to add a little bit of his own music as well. Cute
