Cast of Characters
Oreo - family kitten, surviving well by avoiding anything or anyONE that tries to squeeze her and make her eyeballs bulge!
Noah - nephew, aka squeezer of certain things cuddly, furry, and making the sound of meow.
Taylor - niece, aka little miss mommy
Ty - eyewitness to the following play by play
Me - aunt, that laughed and laughed over 30 minutes at the wonderful chaos!
On the last Fridays of each month I have offered free babysitting for Noah and Taylor so their parents can go to the temple or on a date. This past Friday was the long awaited day and both Noah and Taylor were able to come play. After dinner we went out front to wait for the fireflies to come out and run, run, run.
Good news... its not the USUAL brown stuff you see oozing out of a baby's diaper... just good ole MUD! I missed the events leading up to this mess but Ty said that Noah got Oreo by the tail. She bolted and Noah pursued... right into a huge mudpuddle. Ty was laughing so hard because he said Noah went airborne and then splat.
Noah would just stand still and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle his toes!
It all went south when Taylor started to scold Noah for the HUGE mess.. 'no, no, no, noah!' He was offended and insisted on Taylor giving him loves. With a look of 'OH NO YOU DON'T' Taylor ran from Noah but he needed a hug. When she took her eyes off him he hugged her from behind and then Taylor was so very upset... now SHE is a muddy mess. So both were bawling at the same time. Neither could be consoled.
They both continued to cry during the stripdown, the dunk in the tub, and the scrubdown. It probably wasn't helpful that Ty and I found this whole thing quite hilarious and laughed the whole time, which caused both Noah and Taylor to get higher pitches of wailing!
