Working for Her Dream: She Glares, Because She Cares

Forget about the Presidential elections for one day.

In 2011, my daughter had a dream.

To win Mommy Shorts FIRST Evil Baby Glare-Off.

There was a dream…

She had the look. The determination.

But she fell in the first round by a tenth of a percentage point.

She demanded a recount.

I explained there are no dangling chads in online voting and she conceded to her worthy opponent (who did happen to go to the finals).

She didn’t give up. She’s stubborn like that. 

My daughter has much life experience to practice her glare.

“Do not tell me I can’t eat the chalk!”

Lil D spent the next year training as she fully embraced her two-year-old nature.

She spent hours practicing on me each time she failed to get her way.

Every day.

She strengthened her voice in case Mommy Shorts developed an Evil Laugh Contest.

She held still long enough for me to take a photo.

Now she needs your help to make her dream come true.

Vote for Lil D over at Mommy Shorts.

This is it folks.

THE FINALSLil D made it to the finals!

And if you don’t vote for her… well… I wouldn’t fall asleep if I were you.

I’m told she would make an excellent Freddy Krueger/zombie/black widow/demon/bride of Chucky/Chucky/Exorcist.

Lil D is in finals for Evil Baby Glare-Off

I’m pretty sure they meant for Halloween.

It’s going to be a tight battle. Every vote will be needed.

Otherwise, she might train for another year. Or ten.

As of writing this, she’s already way behind. Like, WAY behind. I’m hoping it just means all of the Lil D supporters are sleeping.

Please help. 


(Voting has ended. It was very close, and thank you to all who voted. Stay tuned for her concession speech as I prepare for another year of “evil” training.)

    I voted Lil D!! That’s tough competition though. Lil D’s mad face is better but that Kadence looks evil. Like possessed-by-the-devil evil. Good luck Lil D!

    • In the context of Evil Baby Glare-Off, Kadence does have some evil skills. BUT, if she was in a Baby Pouting contest, it could be viewed in that light as well.

      There is pretty much no other way to read Lil D’s face other than GLARE.

      She thanks you for your vote and promises to live up to her campaign promises. Really.

  3. Crap! I voted, but I didn’t get your message about rallying the troops until just now – as we were away this weekend. I’m sorry Kelly. If it means anything, I seriously think L’il D is too beautiful to be considered evil. And I know her sweet side.
