Another day, another breakfast. This time Lydia opts to take a shower first, which means they weren’t eating at the same time. Thank goodness for small miracles.
Sam is just finishing breakfast when Lydia makes her way from the shower to the kitchen. A few minutes after he goes into the bathroom to brush his teeth I hear, “Lydia?”
“Lydia’s in the kitchen making breakfast, honey,” I reply. “What do you need?”
Sam steps out of the bathroom and says in a very serious voice, “Umm, I need to have a little talk with Lydia.”
This should be interesting. “Well, she’s in the kitchen.”
Sam makes his way back into the kitchen. “Umm, Lydia? You made a bit of a water mess in the bathroom and I had to clean it up.”
Oh man, how is Lydia going to take that? I glance at her face, expecting to see The Glare, but instead she looks surprised, and even a bit guilty.
“Ohh, I’m sorry!” she squeaks. “That was from my feet when I got out of the shower.” Wow! Looks like we’re going to get the Polite Kids today! And on a Monday, too!
Sam still wanted to finish his point. “Well, I had to clean it up.”
“I’m sorry,” she apologizes again.
Sam, expecting Lydia to have said ‘thank you,’ quickly replies, “You’re welcome.” Then a beat. “Wait . . .”
Both kids hit the floor laughing.
