She Already Knows the Value of Understatement

I'm in the kitchen checking email. I hear water running in the bathroom. I think it is Son washing his hands, since he just used the potty. The washing seems to be taking extra-long, but I don't think much of it. A few minutes later, Son comes wandering by, looking for a box he can use to hold a collection of something.

The "hand-washing" noises are still going on in the bathroom.

It takes a moment for that to register. Then I call out suspiciously, "Daughter? What are you doing?"

"I get little bit water," she replies happily. I go to investigate.

Please note her clothes and bedraggled hair, the splashes on the mirror, and the full bucket perched precariously on the edge of the sink.

There is at least another bucketful of water on the floor, threatening to float away the tiny bathmat, and this is how she is reaching the faucet that is otherwise high out of her way.


"See, Mama. I did it! I get little bit water all by myself!" she proudly announces. Who could be mad at this face?

As the Little Imp would say;

"Dats a big little bitty water, mummy!"

And seriously, there is NO way I could ever get mad at that adorable little face you posted. Nope. Not.A.Chance!

That *might* be the cutest thing I've ever seen. If it's not, it's close. It was the feet on tippy-toes that got me.

What a sweetie! I love the shot of the toes.

That's just too cute - who could be mad?

I have twins at that age and find that I have to be constantly vigilant about noises coming from the bathroom...

Adorable! Nothing gets the panic going like a precarious bucket of water!

Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink!!

The Schweppes guy would be proud.

Please don't tell me you don't know who the Schweppes guy is. I feel old enough already.

At least it was water and not shampoo...

I love it that you went and got the camera instead of freaking out and madly mopping up water. So sweet.

I can't leave MiniMe alone in the bathroom for exactly that reason. I once went in to a pile of sopping wet hand towels.

Love the picture on tip-toes. What a doll.

HAHA!
Everyday this happens in my house. Because everyday my little one "forgets" that she is not allowed to use real water for her tea parties anymore.

Love the tippy-toes shot. My bathroom looks very similar to yours and I'm sure my daughter will pull this stunt soon.

I love that you thought to take pictures of this scene instead of grabbing the precariously perched bucket of water. Impressive.
