The following is not in any way modified or enhanced. It really went just like this.
Josiah: Hey Dad. Come see the towel in the hallway.
Me: (walking to the hallway) Why is there a towel in the hallway.
Josiah: I put it there.
Me: Why is the floor wet? Why is the towel wet?
Josiah: Cause I spilled too much water.
Me: How did you spill water? What was it? A cup or what?
Josiah: A cup from the kitchen.
Me: How did you spill it?
Josiah: I was spinning in circles and I accidentally spilled it.
Me: What?! You were spinning in circles holding an open cup of water? Why were you doing that.
wait for it…
Josiah: Because I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to.
Um, right. I’ve had those moments myself- As if you had to list every possible silly/careless/foolish/dangerous thing your child could do and say “Don’t do that” ahead of time. Yikes-like, “Don’t shoot food off your spoon at the ceiling.” Right.
LOL – you’ve gotta love ’em =)
Oh where would we be without those cute little bundles of joy that God gives us to raise. I am so glad that mine are grown.
