This is one of the many reasons I want to grow my family.

I awoke this morning at 6:30 am to the sound of giggling.  I thought to myself, "this can't be good." 

I got out of bed and made my way from my room towards the kids' rooms.  I hear Kaylee say, "Watch out for those sneaky parents, here comes one now!" She ran from the hall back into her bedroom.  Then, I saw Kera.

Kera was wearing her swimsuit.  This is the same girl who day after day refuses to get herself dressed for daycare, but she sure can wake up early on a Saturday to get her swimsuit on by herself.  That's not so bad, right?  Then I see it.  The bathroom floor.  Glistening.  Wet.  The entire bathroom was covered in water.  The first thing I thought was that she flushed something big down the toilet.  Nope, all clear.

Then I see a sponge on the counter.  I ask Kera what she was doing.  No response.  Then Kaylee, my ever so responsible 5 year old, says, "She was getting the sponge wet and dripping it on the floor.  She wanted to go swimming."

"I see," I said, barely containing the laughter.  I handed Kera a towel and told her to wipe up every drop.  I went back to my room, where Eric was slowly waking up.  I told him the story and all he could come up with was, "Why didn't she just use the bathtub?"

As if nearly 4 year olds ever use logic!

All I could do was think to myself how much fun it is to be a Mom!
