Is This the Kind of "Quirkiness" that Ends Up Being Featured on A&E?

Sophie likes making messes like this one...


And this...


And this or this.  Yes, it's true.  She has a special place in her heart for messes involving toilet paper.  ...Well, sometimes she mixes it up and uses Kraft cheese singles to make the "snow".  It's always good to show Mom you have an appreciation for variety and creativitity.


And, of course, this (which looks just like an ordinary stool, but sooooo totally isn't)...


Sophie, in fact, LIVES to make messes.  It is the entire raison d'etre of her existence (or "raisin detra", for those such as myself, who prefer to hang out with H.I. McDunnough).  I'm pretty sure at the completion of one mess, she's already blissfully dreaming of the next mess.

Take last night, for example...

I stepped away to answer a phone call, leaving five, almost-six-year-old Sophie to tend to the task of washing her hair.  Not a problem, right?  Wrong.  I returned to find 32 ounces of shampoo dumped on her head and her body covered in shaving cream.  "Covered" to the point that my new bottle of Skintimate shaving cream was totally gone.  Do you know how much "pouf" comes out of an entire bottle of shaving cream?  Well...I do!!  Factoring in the bottle of Draino that I had to use to unclog the tub, that was one expensive bath.

 
A $15.37 bath, to be exact.

Grrrrrr.  Mama needs a cocktail.

I was JUST commiserating with someone on Facebook about how both our kids do that with shampoo and body wash and what-have-you, use an entire bottle in one bath. Annalie doesn't do it as often as she used to, and she's almost 6.5 now, so maybe hope is in sight for you to have cheaper baths soon. :-)

Don't worry. All these indicators just lead me to believe that she will grow up to be a fabulous artist.

Well, with the expensive bath, I hope all of you took turns so it's more like $5/bath. LOL ~Rob

Um, wish I'd known that the stool incident involved toilet water before I clicked on the link while eating dinner.

Wow.

When I was Sophie's age, my mom left me for a moment only to find that I'd dumped an entire bottle of Avon Skin So Soft in the tub and proceeded to bathe myself and hair in it. I was slick as an oil spill for days.

Your daughter sure know how to indulge herself in one luxurious bath considering her age.:-)Don't worry, my kid also did that expensive bath once when he was still a toddler. Umm, did I tell you that my kid is a boy?LOL...
