But honestly, I love him. Professor Doofenshmirz and Perry the Platypus are the best part of the show! Without them, it would be really lame. I love that every single episode he comes up with some sort of invention that does something terrible, and always ends in '-inator.'
--Metal Destructinator (turns metal into broccoli)
--Evil Perry the Platypusinator (creates evil clones of Perry the Platypus)
--Nannyinator (creates an army of babies because who's going to counterattack a bunch of babies?)
Oddly, all this -inator talk reminds me of something that you wouldn't usually associate with destruction:
Yes, my own personal Destructinator. (Note the zero pieces of tomorrow's lunch that have NOT been nibbled.)
It began rather innocently, with her climbing out of her crib, unlocking the door, opening it and coming downstairs when she was supposed to be napping. We added those white childproofing door knob covers and they helped for a bit. I was very surprised at her solution:
I only wish I was kidding.
Soon her barely-2yo 'skills' progressed to removing the twisty tie from the hamster cage (even after I threw in a couple of half knots with all the twists) and after a while we had to lock the parakeet in her cage. Like with a padlock. And a key kept way up high. I really wish I was kidding.
She looks angelic, doesn't she? Just missing a halo. Right. Let me remind you of this fun encounter.
Don't even THINK of leaving an avocado on the counter to ripen.
When we moved into our bachelor friend's house, the fun really started. My favorite, of course, was hearing Alex outside yell, "Cora, No! Moooommm! Cora's on the roof!" Yeah. Nice. Did not take the time to grab my camera for that. (Did take an awful shot with my phone 'cause I'm an awesome mom like that.)
Other fun things were having her experiment with a b.r.a.n.d. n.e.w. tube of toothpaste
and bring the landlord's "toda" into the bathroom so she could have a drink.
So I'm thinking that I either need to have Homeland Security keep an eye on her or borrow her. 'Cause she could do something crazy to some bad guy somewhere.
Professor Doofenshmirtz, you have met your match.
