Soap Scum Messages

The other day, I was cleaning the shower door in the bathroom.  It was covered with soap scum, as is usually the case at the end of every week.  As I wiped it down, I noticed what looked like the letter, "L."

Hmmm, I thought.  What's this?

Upon careful inspection, I noticed the letters, "o," "v," and "e."  "Love."  There was a message written in that soap scum:  I Love You.

Awww, how sweet! I thought.  Who did this?

I asked my husband.  It wasn't him.

I asked my daughter.  It wasn't her.

That meant it was either the dog or my son.  And since the quadruped doesn't have handy-dandy fingers to write such messages, it had to be only one person:  Bubba!

"Bubba," I asked.  "Did you write a soap message on the shower door?"

He grinned and nodded.

So I gave him a big hug.  "I love you, too!"

  3. Awesome. My girls like taking their showers in my shower stall because they can write all over the glass door. Sometimes it's math problems, sometime's it's spelling words, or just crazy pictures.

    1. He is a great kid! I'm not sure how well the soap scum message would've shown up on a camera. If he does it again, I'll try to take a picture and see how it turns out.

  13. Aw! How cute. That's the kind of thing my youngest would do--after squeezing all the liquid soap down the drain. *sigh* You've got to love them.
