The Worst Thing Ever.

I came home from work one day and Sammi met me at the door with a terrible look on her face.

Me:  "Hey pumpkin, what's wrong?"

Sammi:  “Daddy, something very, very horrible happened to me today.”

Me (worried):  “What happened?  Are you okay?!?”

Sammi (very seriously):  “This is the worst thing that ever happened to me in my whole life!”

Me (very alarmed now):  “What happened?!?”

Sammi:  “I was going potty at school today - and my bum slipped and touched the water!"

Me:  "Uh, that's it?"

Sammi:  "But you don't understand Daddy - MY BUM TOUCHED THE WATER!!!

Me (trying not to smile now):  "Oh no!  I'm so sorry honey. That must've been an awful experience for you."

Sammi:  "Yes it was.  It was sooo gross!!!”

I'm really glad her idea of 'the worst thing ever' and mine are two different things.  I guess it's all perspective...


  1. Read this one out to the Lil man who couldn't stop laughing. Had to then read through the rest of your blog with him, which we both enjoyed. :0)

  2. Thanks Lily! I consider a compliment from you and the Lil man to be one of the best compliments I can receive... :)

  3. Oh how it would be good to be young again when this is the worst thing ever!! It made me chuckle.

  4. May that *always* be the worst thing ever for her. File under: Hoping just saying so makes it happen. ;D

    Cute story!
