Recently, my daughter wanted to play with her Barbie bathtub...with actual water in it.
Well, mostly I'm a jerk, so I never let her play with water toys in her ROOM. But, in the spirit of NOT being a jerk, I said to myself; "big deal, it's only a little water. If she spills it, just keep a towel handy to mop it up."
Later that morning, as I was taking a small break, and she was going back to play in her room, I told girlie to empty that thing out, so she didn't accidentally trip over it, and spill it.
Whoo! That was boring.
