|Leo the Lion's "mug shot" - BUSTED!|
So, I was pleased that I had a few minutes more to work. I grabbed some dirty laundry, ran in the basement and switched loads. Came back upstairs, dusted, straightened and put some things away. All the while, Madeline played nicely. Until....."Mmmmoooooommmm, something is wrong with the sink!" I arrive, with Madeline wearing a hooded lion towel from her toddler days, the sink overflowed onto the entire vanity top. Now, why Madeline didn't shut off the water BEFORE the sink overflowed is beyond me. But, even better, Madeline tried to clean up the water on the floor by taking out some guest towels from underneath the sink. Good thinking on her part, however Madeline proceeded to leave the doors to under the sink open so that when the water over flowed it drenched ALL of these bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. So NOW, I have all of these towels to wash now too.
|The sink only half-way through clean-up.|
And so my "productive" day was productive only in creating more of a mess to clean up. Grrrrr.... Well, I guess Madeline isn't as independent in her play as I hoped she could be. Oh well, live and learn. I guess I will be cooking AND cleaning on Thanksgiving.
