One day my mother was out and my dad was responsible for me.
I was maybe 2 and a half years old.
Someone had given me a little “tea set” as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys.
Dad was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of “tea”, which was just water.
After several cups of tea and a lot of praise for such delicious tea, my mom came home.
My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea because it was “just the cutest thing!”
My Mom waited, and sure enough, I walked down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watched him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know…
“Did it ever occur to you that the only place that your daughter can reach to get water is the toilet?”
