Bad to the Bone

"On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder at the joy they had found.
The head nurse spoke up, and she said 'Leave this one alone.'
She could tell right away that I was Bad to the Bone.
Bad to the Bone
Bad to the Bone
Bad to the Bone."

Check out the "bad" tattoo on my youngest.

Yep, it's a Flounder-esque fish. Michaela Byrd says she is never taking it off.
Don't let the giggling face and the Princess pink ruffled romper fool you....

She's Bad to the Bone.

It's only a matter of time before she does hard time for stealing tricycles, smoking candy cigarettes behind the Sunday School nursery wing, or drinking too many juiceboxes.

We're looking into toddler military schools to see if we can't get her turned around.

On a serious note, my Show Me the Progress party is still going strong, and it's been really fun to see what other bloggers are working on. Thanks to the girls who have stopped by so far! You can link up any time before 10 pm (ET) on Friday. Beth is also hosting a chalkboard paint linky party today...should be fun!

Off to make sure my kids aren't spray painting graffiti on the neighbors' fence or some other delinquency.

{Are you enjoying your summer?}

  12. Hi! Adorable blog. I saw your comments on a few of the blogs that I visit; serenity is one of my favorite words (not to mention aspirations)!

  13. LMAO at envisioning that little hooligan spray painting graffiti. Hilarious. She's such a cutie.

  16. That pantry makeover at House of Smiths is AMAZING!!!!
    Your little girl is TOO. CUTE.

  17. "There is a reason why a lot of people don't believe in positive thinking and that kind of thing. It is simply that they do not want to face the fact that their lives are totally in their own hands and they are afraid of the immense potential and results if they do so."
