You know how, if you have to pee, the sound of running water makes it worse? Apparently that is an instinctive response that begins early.
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.
