Learning life skills

So, the other night when it was time to brush our teeth, I put the paste on the brushes (because they are more effective that way), put each boy on a stool (because it's fun to watch yourself make a mess on your own face), and left the bathroom (because I'm stupid).

From the other room (there was something very important happening on TV, I'm sure), I hear giggling, riotous laughter, and water. Oh, crap!!!!!

I rushed to the bathroom to find Peanut standing on the toilet with his hand under the rushing water - and I mean RIGHT under the water - you know, exactly where it exits the faucet and squirts everywhere when you push just so.... He has quickly mastered the skill of soaking the entire bathroom, but specifically of drenching his brother.

Meatball was completely wet and laughing his butt off. Then, he decided to try his luck and hopefully give Peanut a little pay back which would have been perfect - if only he were left handed, which he is not. So, when he reached up with his right hand, I knew exactly what was going to happen, but didn't bother to correct him or stifle my laughter when he squirted himself in the face instead of his intended target.

Oh, and don't think that this fun, new, squirty skill hasn't been used at every bath time since - because it definitely has!
