Baths, Not: A WonderBaby Jam

July 23, 2007

WonderBaby likes her friends, her Daddy, her cat and bedtime; could live without Mommy, and baths…

File this under Dubious Achievements, 2007: after many, many hours, most of which would have been better spent pursuing world peace or building her portfolio of paper-clip art, Her Bad Mother finally figures out how to upload video, which is really pointless, seeing as she has the film-making skills of a drunk Luddite with no hands.

Note that, when asked who she loves, WonderBaby names friends, Daddy and the cat before finally coming ’round to Mommy. Note, too, that the focus of Mommy’s camera keeps vascillating between WonderBaby and the bottle of vermouth behind her. These two things are almost certainly unrelated.

    It doesn’t seem to want to load. :(

    Amy Jo July 23, 2007 at 6:07 pm

    I can’t get it to load, either! Boo!

    AndreAnna July 23, 2007 at 6:07 pm

    You have the video set to private, which means it mightn’t load when embedded. And when we click to go straight to you tube, it is locked out because it is private.

    I’m sure it is quite funny though! :)

    Simply Hollie July 23, 2007 at 6:29 pm

    ah the art of video and then the art of loading the video they are enorous tasks!

    Found your blog today and well I will return left a comment too under the post where you talk about tanner.

    I invite you to come and read my blog as I am a mom who cares about the issues here in Canada too, and I too think it is important to blog them…

    Phoenix July 23, 2007 at 6:52 pm

    I think it’s kinda funny that it won’t load. Maybe WB doesn’t like us either.

    Or, maybe mommy had too much vermouth. :)

    AT least you are in the list. I usually am not, in fact, my daughter will often emphatically state that she does NOT love me. Good thing I know otherwise. I just tell her about unconditional love at those time.

    mcewen July 23, 2007 at 7:33 pm

    I’m afraid I couldn’t get the video to load, but I’m with you in spirit = pass the booze.

    Her Bad Mother July 23, 2007 at 8:37 pm

    Okay – FIXED IT.

    Am total, total tard.

    daysgoby July 23, 2007 at 9:02 pm

    She’s beautiful!

    Mimi July 23, 2007 at 9:23 pm

    I did the same thing with the first video I uploaded. Whoops! But that WB is FUNNNNNNY. She really does name everyone on earth before you, huh? Harsh. She could probably tell you were fantasizing about a strong gin martini …

    Is that ice cream all over her face? Good idea on the stripping her down first …

    gingajoy July 23, 2007 at 9:26 pm

    Good GOD! that gal looks like her Momma. So Her Bad Father might get the love, but you, YOU are streaks ahead in the great race that is the surge for genetic supremacy. BOOYAH!

    Bon July 23, 2007 at 9:27 pm

    mebbe she envies you the vermouth, and is holding back her love so she has something to bargain with for a wee dram…

    but, damn, she’s cute.

    and what is it with the Daddy love anyway? send some vermouth my way…

    Her Bad Mother July 23, 2007 at 9:32 pm

    The irony of it is, I don’t even like vermouth. I like my martinis drrryyyyy – vermouth shouldn’t even be in the room.

    Granny July 23, 2007 at 9:33 pm

    You and I learned to upload video at about the same time.

    I have some grandbaby videos (far too many) over on granny.

    kittenpie July 23, 2007 at 10:06 pm

    Heh. I was on the outs last week, but this week? I am the SHIZZLE! I’m basking while I can, because it doesn’t last, does it? Fickle little ingrates.

    crazymumma July 23, 2007 at 10:23 pm

    irony is, I thought I as the New Media Honours grad from OCA was the only person to use luddite in these here parts.

    she shoore is kute.

    Tracey July 23, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    That is the cutest! She sounds SO much like my daughter, it’s scary. Especially the “noooo…” with a smile. And “awesome.”

    Very cute.

    Christine July 23, 2007 at 11:03 pm

    “drunk luddite”


    Anonymous July 24, 2007 at 12:27 am

    absolutely beyond adorable! that was (verbatim) my daughter just a few months ago. now she’s so clingy I can’t go to the bathroom without her wanting to sit on my lap while I pee… enjoy it!

    motherbumper July 24, 2007 at 7:58 am

    I’m making B laugh and beg for WB by playing this over and over again… hee hee

    BOSSY July 24, 2007 at 8:39 am

    Bossy always falls to the bottom of every popularity list.

    Laural Dawn July 24, 2007 at 8:41 am

    That totally cracked me up. I loved that stage of talking. It’s so cute!

    something blue July 24, 2007 at 9:24 am

    I’m so glad that you’ve mastered video because it makes me smile. Love it!

    Karen Rani July 24, 2007 at 9:31 am

    Is it so wrong that I noticed the booze before I read your words?

    She is so beautiful, C. Her voice is like spun toffee.

    Diane July 24, 2007 at 10:03 am

    Darling!!! She is just too cute. Love that little voice!

    (And yes, at the end of my day, a bottle of cabernet calls my name.)

    Pgoodness July 24, 2007 at 10:05 am

    She’s adorable! And so cool to hear your voice, too!

    radical mama July 24, 2007 at 10:19 am

    Oh, so precious!

    I don’t know why but it is always fun to hear a blogger’s voice. You have a nice one!

    Emily July 24, 2007 at 10:50 am

    Oh, no, crazymumma, I use the word “Luddite,” too.

    Iris July 24, 2007 at 11:50 am

    That video made my ovaries itch…….

    I have a son who will be 16 in a few weeks, and three other children of varying age… and I will be turning 41 very soon……. and yet…. the sights and sounds of your baby makes my womb ache……….

    Former dypeptic now recovering but still blogless in these blogful times July 24, 2007 at 11:50 am

    What is so endearing about children WonderBaby’s age is that they’re so positively delphic in their pronouncements.

    Hey, pass the vermouth!

    Jess July 24, 2007 at 12:19 pm

    What a sweetheart and you sound so loving with her, too. Great job mastering the technology!

    Guilty Secret July 24, 2007 at 12:25 pm

    Sooooo cute! :)

    Mrs. Chicky July 24, 2007 at 1:01 pm

    That loud bang you may have heard was my monitor exploding from the cuteness of your child.

    Kyla July 24, 2007 at 1:22 pm

    That is one cute kiddo!

    Major Bedhead July 24, 2007 at 3:03 pm

    So, SO adorable.

    Susan Getgood July 24, 2007 at 3:13 pm

    So cute.

    Of course, kids know how to pull our chains from day one. She KNEW you wanted her to say Mummy and made you work for it.

    So smart.

    Lawyer Mama July 24, 2007 at 3:26 pm


    And I totally agree about the martinis. The drier the better.

    nomotherearth July 24, 2007 at 4:42 pm

    What a cutie!

    The Boy only says “I love you” when specifically prompted, and then, only VERY rarely.

    jen July 24, 2007 at 6:01 pm

    isn’t it the truth, liquor before women? how does that saying go?

    adorable stuff.

    Her Bad Mother July 24, 2007 at 7:06 pm

    Isn’t it ‘candy is dandy but liquor is quicker?’ ;)

    Jenifer July 24, 2007 at 8:28 pm

    Sometimes I wish I wasn’t my daughter’s favorite….all I hear is “mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy….” All. Day. Long.

    b*babbler July 24, 2007 at 8:49 pm

    She is so emphatic in her likes! I love a girl with an opinion ;)

    So adorable!

    Mom101 July 24, 2007 at 8:54 pm

    I know it’s totally lame to just write SO CUTE in your comments but…

    you know

    if the shoe fits

    slouching mom July 25, 2007 at 12:07 am

    Oh! Girl envy! Must be strong!

    crazymumma July 25, 2007 at 12:12 am

    back again because I just realized…why is there vermouth in a bathroom?

    am i missing something?

    ps. she has you sooooo by the short and curlies…

    Liz July 25, 2007 at 12:12 am

    Mommy/Henry bath time is never any fun. For either of us.

    Also? Henry can be yapping away with his Poppa about “Mama!” But as soon as that door opens and he sees me? He gets a big, sneaky grin and says, ever so loudly…”DAAAAAAAAAAHDA!”

    Anonymous July 25, 2007 at 4:50 am

    Hey buddy! Nice blog that you maintain here.. I just chanced upon your blog surfing the blogosphere. I was thinking.. you could try out some interesting widgets on your page and spice it up with some great pictures. E.g try out the poster widget on with your relevant keywords. It has some of the best images i have ever seen.

    Her Bad Mother July 25, 2007 at 8:14 am

    CrazyMumma – as a matter of fact, a bathroom with a liquor cabinet would be a very fine thing indeed, but as I have no full bathroom at all at the moment, sadly, there is no liquor in mine. WB is finishing up dinner here, in the dining room.

    And, anonymous? Hey buddy! Shove your widgets up your ass!

    kittenpie July 30, 2007 at 11:50 am

    I say this not in a creepy stalker kind of way but in a I-know-you’ll-take-this-how-i-mean-it kind of way, that I may have to bump you off and take that child. She is so amazing.

    Anonymous August 2, 2007 at 11:26 am

    hi catherine you have a beautiful voice.wonderbaby is so 2 year old when asked who she loves well it depends on her mood.
