So, I decided to teach Jaci REALLY early about doing dishes....OR NOT! Every time I go to do dishes she has to be right beside me playing in the water. That doesn't last long though. She pushes me out of the way and most of the time I have to just move the dirty dishes out of the sink so she can play. She would do this for hours at a time if I would let her. The pros: it keeps her busy so I can get things done and she's happy and talking and singing "row, row, row your boat". The cons: she gets water EVERYWHERE, she SCREAMS when I make her stop, and then I can't actually DO any dishes!
She's just so dang cute, I just can't say no, so I let her 'do dishes' for a little while. She's playing in the sink right now and singing a bunch of songs, which is letting me get this done!
On another note, we had a BBQ in our backyard yesterday and invited some friends from our ward. It wasn't anything big, but we had a good time. Bill used the fire pit in the backyard to do hamburgers and he had some giant buckets of water (for fire safety) and the kids all played in those most of the time and came away SOAKED to the bone! There's just something with Jaci and water lately!
