Toddlers Be Crazy

Today, I attempted to slip away and get some work done at my computer. A gate divides my work area from the living room, and Sweet Pea was hanging on the gate calling to me "Wanna come iiiinnn." I told her it would be just one moment, and then I would come play.  That lasted about 5 minutes, and then I heard those two, terrifying words:

"Uh oh." 

"What's wrong, baby?" I said as I looked to the gate. She had reached her arms through the bars and was holding her hands together on the other side.
"Uh oh, arms." She said, concerned yet preoccupied.
I laughed. "Did you put your arms through the gate?"
She very abruptly pulled her face to the gate and barked out "WANNA DRAW A KITTY CAT!"

Because sometimes having a toddler is kind of like having a rabid beast.

 A rabid beast with a taste for crayons.
