Two Fridays ago, Devon had a girls night planned which meant I was on full on dad duty.
After playing around in the cul de sac for quite some time, we came down to the front area and I made the boys dinner and we roasted some S’mores.
By this time, it was getting a little late and Emma was ready for her bath. So, I got her in her bath and a short while later, the boys were ready for their bath.
In they went.
In the meantime, I got Emma in her PJs and began to feed her her bottle in the recliner.
This essentially meant that I was trapped. I could hear the boys right behind me, giggling and making splashes. I was expecting to see water everywhere once I was done feeding Emma.
Well, there was water and a whole lot more. The boys decided to throw their clothes, toilet paper, towels and anything else they could get their hands on into the full tub.
The kicker was the toilet paper. Wet toilet paper and a tub drain don’t mix.
To say I was annoyed would be an understatement. I had to drain the tub by hand to take the drain apart and clean out the shredded TP.
After getting the boys down to bed, I chuckled and remembered one of my favorite ‘isms’; ‘If you’re going to laugh about it later, you mind as well laugh about it now’.
Very true. Devon was teasing me about it all weekend too. It’s the little moments that make the spice of life.
