Once she was in the tub, I decided it would be a good time to sit down and read. I could have been doing the dishes, but that's no fun.
I got a little caught up in my book, apparently, because the next thing I knew the water was draining from the tub.
"Wait!" I hollered. "Don't drain the tub yet! We still need to wash you!"
And she hollered back, "It's okay, Mom. I already did everything you usually do in here."
Somehow, I didn't think her doing it was going to be as effective as me doing it, but she was clearly so proud of her efforts that I knew it was going to have to be handled delicately.
"Um, how about I just do it over again, just to, um, make sure..."
"Oh, okay, Mom, you just want to make sure that I'm extra shiny?"
Yes, that's it!
