Uncle Pete Has a Big Mouth

I finally got around to getting the pics off my camera. One reminded me of a little story from a couple of months (and teeth) ago.

One morning…

Unc: Tonight you are going to sleep in your own bed.

The ACN shakes her head “No.”

Unc: Unc’s bed?

The ACN shakes her head “No.”

Unc: With your mommy and daddy?

The ACN shakes her head “No.”

Unc: At [The Monkey’s] house?

The ACN shakes her head “No.”

Unc: In the back of the truck?

The ACN: Yeah.

Unc: No. You can’t sleep in the back of the truck.

The ACN: Yeah!

Unc: No!

The ACN: YEAH!

Two minutes later…

    awe. so did she really sleep out there? i’m thinking no… but man i probably could’ve convinced my parents otherwise. lol

  2. Peter says:

    Sleep outside? Ha! I have a stroke if her blankets are off and she is cold when I go get her in the morning.

  3. Wendy says:

    Aw, she’s such a cutie!..she gets that from her uncle, lol.

  4. Peter says:

    wendy: I’ve been saying that for years! My family? Unconvinced.

  5. Wendy says:

    Keep working at it – sometime soon they’re going to have to admit you’re awesome!

  8. Miss Pickle says:

  9. Clink says:

    Most delicious child ever.

    Most powerless against her whims Unc, too.

  10. CamiKaos says:

    she is so cute I just can’t believe you haven’t learned to stop arguing ;)

  11. distracted spunk says:

    If anyone wanted to destroy the world, they’d just need to join forces with the ACN to get you on their side.

  12. QueenBee says:

    Oh my gosh! HOW FREAKING ADORABLE!! You are such a good uncle!

  15. Ashley says:

    hahaha that is so cute!! She has you tied around her finger so tight ;-)

  16. molly says:

    I just want to pick her up and hug her. A lot.

  17. Peter says:

    wendy: That is gonna take some arm twisting!

    miriam: I know, right?

    heather: I am shocked that I waited two minutes to do it.

    miss pickle: Thank. You.

    clink: Sooooo true. And she loves making me do silly things.

    camikaos: I have to fight it a little. You know, for my street cred.

    distracted spunk: VERY true. My family already uses it against me. “Peter, [The ACN] will be so sad if you don’t run these errands for me.”

    queenbee: Thanks! I try.

    slightly disorganized: Thanks! I appreciate the hearting.

    mindy: Good to have you back.

    ashley: She figured it out VERY early on.

    molly: I do that. I carry her around in a continuous hug as often as possible.

  18. skinny says:

    “wouldn’t she be cold and may get sick?”… that was the only thing i could think of… ha ha, i guess i’m over the “cuteness” department.

    welcome back to the left pete! (finally today i see you on the left!)

  19. Tia says:

    i don’t know why you even try to argue when CLEARLY you’re not going to win.

  20. Eve says:

    That doesn’t look very comfortable…

    aw…

  21. Eve says:

    That doesn’t look very comfortable…

    aw…

  22. Airam says:

    Ha! She so has you wrapped!!

    I had a wittier comment this morning when I read it on my reader but I can’t remember it now.

  23. libby says:

    acn knows how to get her way, that’s for sure! what a cute pic!

  24. twobuyfour says:

    Ok. I’ll grant you that’s cute. Maybe you’re right.

  25. heather says:

    good thing you didn’t say ‘on the roof?’

  26. Cait says:

    I am stealing that child. Now.

  27. sybil law says:

    You buckle like a belt, Peter.
    But that is priceless. She is adorable!
    Oh – and I actually tagged you. Saying that makes me all embarassed. Tag!

  28. Susie says:

    Awww she is adorable and very lucky to have you as an uncle!

    And that is your late night comment :)

  29. Peter says:

    skinny: I had messed up the code a little bit, so it looked wacky in IE7 apparently. I’m good like that.

    tia: Don’t worry, my arguing does little to dissuade her.

    eve: She LOVED it. Stayed out there for a half an hour. Giggling.

    airam: What good do witty comments in your head do me, airam? Sheeesh.

    libby: Thanks! I wish I could say that is the wackiest thing she has charmed her way into.

    twobuyfour: Dude… It don’t get cuter.

    heather: Ha! I have learned (finally) not to offer things that I won’t follow-up on. Luckily (?) I’ll follow up on any number of silly things.

    cait: I hate to tell you, but we’re a package deal. And I am super hard to put up with.

    sybil: Eeep. Don’t be offended, but I am a sucky tagee. I almost never do them. I have no idea why…

    susie: Thanks! Was it all peaceful and quiet-like while you were commenting?

  30. Girl With Curious Hair says:

    Not that I was nearly as cute as ANC, but it has been said that I too was used against my uncle to make him run errands (of course, he shaved my head when I was 3–but he was trying to help).

    Oh, and you seem completely powerless before her strong arguments.
