Splashing in the Bathtub

Last night I told my seven-year-old son to go take a bath.  He was filthy.  As usual.  He went upstairs and took his bath.  When he emmerged, he looked clean and shiney.  He was also in his pajamas.  Okay.  Nothing unusual.  Except he was grinning from ear to ear.  That usually means trouble.

"What did you do?"  I asked.  No use beating around the bush.

He giggled.  "I took a bath with my clothes on."

"What?" I said.  I couldn't believe it.  "Why in the world would you jump in the bathtub with all of your clothes on?"

"I was hot."

Huh?

"Plus my clothes needed to be washed, too."

Oh.

I looked at my goofy son.  "Couldn't you have at least taken your socks off?"

"No.  They were dirty, too."

I went in the bathroom.  On the floor was a sopping wet sweatshirt, a sopping wet pair of jeans, a sopping wet pair of underpants, and  a pair of sopping wet socks.  I picked that dripping wet stuff up and hauled it down to the washing machine for a proper wash.

I tell you, I never know what that kid is going to think of next!

  9. Cute and goofy :) And aren't boys great at leaving stuff all over the floor? Mine is 14, and I'm afraid to say he hasn't outgrown the habit, and I can't have taught (nagged) him very well...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. I've enjoyed reading your posts, and look forward to more adventures in your Mama Diaries :)

  10. Those grins sure have some evil meaning to it and it isn't a surprise that you're left with those wet clothes. Well at least he had the guts to tell you where he left it! :D
