The other day I left Peanut while she was washing her hands in the bathroom that is closest to our kitchen. I was washing some dishes and reminded her to finish rinsing her hands and turn off the water. A minute later she still had the water running, never a good sign with three year olds… So, I went to check on her. She had a strange expression on her face. When I asked her what was wrong she said, “I have soap in my mouth.”
Trying not to laugh, I got a cup of water for her and had her rinse and spit. Sure enough bubbles came out of her mouth. We talked about how the soap tasted bad and I figured, “Well, now she won’t do that again…”
It seems whenever I think that as a parent, I am proven wrong.
That night I left her in her bathroom, brushing her teeth, while I got her brother in his pajamas. When I returned she looked like a rabid dog, only the foam around her mouth was bright, fluorescent green. She had used the Kandoo kid’s hand soap to brush her teeth. I guess the soap does smell good, but I really can’t believe it could taste good enough to try twice in one day.
Anyone who comes to our house will have a hard time finding soap in the bathroom now… Mommy put it on top of the medicine cabinet before bed that night.
