Pumpkin Pie was in the tub and I was cutting Sweet Pea’s hair. This makes Sweet Pea a captive audience and he has no choice but to engage in conversation because it is not in his nature to sit quietly. Wait a minute, maybe I am the captive audience!
Sweet Pea: I’m all itchy.
Me: Pumpkin Pie is in the tub now. When he is done, you can take a shower and wash off the hair.
Sweet Pea: Uh huh. He can leave the water in.
(Note: We tend to run out of hot water after a full bathtub.)
Me: I had him pee before he got in so he won’t pee in the tub.
Sweet Pea: Good. Then I can pee in it myself.
