Running Water

Ordinarily, if I’m bathing Miss Mouse solo, I run her bath, then strip her naked in her bedroom and whisk her into the tub. Yesterday, I got the order of operations mixed up and arrived in the bathroom with a naked baby only to discover there was no water.

No problem, thought I. I’ll just hold her on my lap and fill the tub.

I kid you not, the millisecond that the water started running, she peed all over my lap.
