So I did what any good blogging mother would do

I FIRST grabbed the camera and THEN I cleaned up the child!So the story goes something like this:

I was upstairs putting clean sheets on the boys bed.Jake,Joe and Zoey were playing downstairs.Upon entering the boys bedroom,I am fairly certain EVERY Lego piece they own, was strewn about their floor.Strewn is actually a tame assessment.I called them up,they begrudgingly began to tackle the mess,only after I threatened that next time I would pick them up myself and donate them to a couple of other little boys who would be responsible and put away their things... yep, I dropped a "motherism" that many of our mother's used on us, that we swore we would never use on our kids.In my case however,my mother threatened to give US away but that is entirely a whole other post.Anyway,as the boys cleaned up and I finished the bed, we heard Zoey "talking".She sometimes comes to the bottom of the stairs when she knows someone is up there and kind of calls out...as if to say,"guys,where are you?"Super cute.So Joe yells down,"Don't worry Zoey we will be right there." Again,super cute.We head down,fully anticipating to see her sitting at the bottom of the stairs but .. she's not.Nor is she in the kitchen or living room.All of the sudden I hear this clanking and I head immediately to the laundry room,which mind you is pitch dark,flip on the light, only to find Zoey having a blast in the dog bowls.She was giggling.I was laughing.And the boys thought it was a scream.Check out the video and I would like to point out a few things.First ... my child is in need of a serious haircut.Second,would you listen to me,trying to take every opportunity to get Zoey to "say" or sign her words,all the while she is absolutely soaking wet.Lastly,look at my child, who puts virtually nothing to her lips, and she is licking and sucking the dog water off her fingers.Totally yuck but then again ... yeah Zoey.Next time could we try to put something a little more sanitary in your mouth?Please?(pause the blog music at the bottom of the blog if you care to listen.)

You know I had a post almost identical to this with Emmie in the cat dish. And yes I grabbed my camera first too.

Zoey is having a great time. You know maybe it's the fine china she has something against. Try getting her a cute set of dog dishes to eat from, they say it's all in the presentation!lol!!!
She is seriously going directly to her mouth with that water! Love it!
Thanks for thinking of us and going for the camera first!!!!

Okay...that was cute. Disgusting or not...it was cute! She knew darn well she was making a mess all over herself. And, she looked darn proud too!

Lacey said...

Look at that girl go, trying new things, and putting things in her mouth! Even though it is dog water, its a start! Give her a big smooch from me, and the other boys too!

You know ive heard that a dogs mouth is acutally cleaner than ours.. dont know if its true but maybe it will help you feel better about playing in the dogs bowls HA!

She is so cute and thanks for sharing. Sending lots of love your way

Hey...they say that dogs mouths are cleaner than human mouths so she is better off drinking out of the dog bowl than out of your glass!! So cute. I love that I am not the only one who has to search for her child only to find her in some sort of trouble. So..are you coming this way for a ride anytime soon? You and Caitlin could meet at my house. Maybe we should plan something for when Lacey and them are down and we can hang out here while Ray is testing or something.

Oh how much fun!!!! I wish we could have heard her giggle :) I love how Joe says "Zoey you're all wet" and she looks right down at her shirt and touches it! She totally knew what she was doing and she was having a blast! Great memory on film!
