Oops

Ok, no more blogging while the girls are in the bathtub. I was making the post below while the girls were in the bathtub tonight and walked in to find that they had gotten out of the tub and grabbed all their dirty clothes and had them in the tub with them. They were washing them out and even had hung some up on the washcloth rod inside the tub to dry. It took all my will power to not grab the camera to take a picture, but the girls have learned that when mommy takes a picture it's for a good reason and I do not want them to be trying to wash their clothes in the bathtub with them. The floor was also covered in water and the bathmat was soaked which wasn't that big of a deal until Matt walked into our bedroom (which is located below the bathroom) and found water dripping through the floor. Then the story as not so funny. I told them not to do it again, but it's hard to scold them when for their whole lives they have seen women washing clothes out in the river where they were bathing. They were just doing what they've seen modeled for them. But I'm not sure my bathroom can take many more cleaning sessions like this.

Yep. We've had to lay ceramic tile in Ellie's bathroom for causing similar leaks into the basement...unfortunately she doesn't have as good an excuse as your girls.
