What happens at your house when you think your kids are being good? At my house it usually consists of doing something they really shouldn’t. The opposite is true too. If I think they’re getting in to things, they’re usually just playing with their toys.
Here’s a good example. Earlier this week I had been cleaning up randomly throughout the house, so I was never in one room for very long. I had put a load of dishes in the sink to soak, and then continued picking up every where else. At one point the Princesses, all 3 of them, pulled their chairs over to the sink to play in the water. I didn’t mind, as long as they weren’t making a huge mess. There were no knives in the sink so I knew they couldn’t hurt themselves. After awhile they went back downstairs. I eventually headed that way to take care of some items and finish going through the closet of handed down girls clothes as well. Here’s how it went:
Me “Why is the floor wet?”
Princess V “Because our feet our wet. We’re telling the truth!”
Me “Ok, I’m glad you’re telling the truth, but why are your feet wet?”
Princess V “It’s the blue soap”
Me “What blue soap”
Princess V “You know the blue soap”
Me “where is the blue soap now?”
Princess C “I’ll get it!” She then runs across the toy room to bring me the empty bottle of Liquid Dish Soap. The bottle that I had recently just opened and started using, that had been pracitically full earlier that morning.
