the excuse

When a toddler needs an excuse to touch a forbidden object: just handing it to mommy, of course. "Here Mommy!"

Glasses from the nightstand, phone from the end table, coffee mug (with coffee) from the table. Yup. Even to bring it across the house to mommy who is washing her face. That's how coffee came to be on her pretty shirt. And she knows that technically, she wasn't playing with it or hurting it. Too, too smart. And a sweet little smile, as though being such an incredible helper, to top it off.

Little stinker.

Mel went thru that stage! It drove me nuts. Thankfully, she outgrew it and does not do it anymore. It will pass!!
