That’s not water

13 Aug

I keep the bathroom door shut. Mostly at all times. Hannah is big enough to open and shut the door as she needs. The exception of course, is when I’m putting water in the bathtub and getting the kids ready for their evening bath.

Usually Daniel is content  ridiculously happy to stand at the side of the bath and eagerly watch the water  level rise as he flaps and squeals in delight like he’s trying to flag down a passing toy boat.

Not the other day. Hannah was half stuck in her shirt, one arm in, one out, the head hole half up her nose, as she tried to remove 2 shirts over her big head at the same time.

“Mommy, can you help me?” She asked

“Of course sweetie.” Giggling “Are you stuck????!!!!”

Meanwhile, Danny, mischievous as he is, took the mom-is-busy-with-Hannah opportunity to get to Hannah’s potty as fast and stealthily as he possibly could. No worries, it was house cleaning day, and I had scrubbed that potty just a couple of hours before. But I still don’t let him play with it. I don’t want him to think it’s ok. Yuck.

“Daniel, no, we don’t play with the potty!” I said in vain as he lifted the lid and shoved his chubby almost-1-year-old hand inside.

And then I saw it.

But it was too late.

As I rushed over, he turned his head, looking at me with that gleeful I’m-so-proud-of-myself smile that is so big, he has to squint his eyes to make room for his cheeks. He made a joyous noise and splashed his hand  in the pee some more.

All in the space of a couple seconds.

Thank goodness it was bath time. And thank God it wasn’t poop.

    Haha…that was a fun read….though admittedly it did bring some flashbacks. When my daughter was their age it was similar … and I had only 1…oh lord….you will pull your hair and wonder what you were thinking at times….but I also know those times are more than bullied over by the times of laughter and happiness.

    And yes … I click the button *smiles*

      Haha, yes, but then most times I look at them and think how lovely and sweet they are. These crazy mishaps make for good blog stories though 🙂

      Uh-Oh. I thought they were supposed to get easier as they get older. No?

        Let’s just say the problems are different…

        Agrees with 5kidswdisabilities … just different. Mine is just 12 (preteen) … it is definitely getting … interesting. But with that, also comes the incredibleness as you watch them gain their independence and a sense of their “selves”.

        Fair enough. Hey, as long as they can wipe their own butts, dress themselves, feed themselves, etc., I’ll be happy with the different problems (er…I think. That’s what I tell myself anyway…).

    They sure can move fast! At least it was only wee, and he could wash it off with bath time. Boys will be boys 🙂
