Her Own Water Show

November 13, 2008

The Little One is still rear-facing in her car seat. She is a peanut and rear facing is safer, but this is not about car seat safety. Although if you want some facts on it, I’d be more than happy to oblige.

Anyway, the girls have these spill-proof tops on water bottles in the car. They get water only in the car and these bottles have been a lifesaver. Yes, I learned the hard way with the Big One and leaky sippy cups.

We were in San Diego last weekend and our way to the Zoo with my mom. Grandma was in the third row seat in the van so she could see the Little One’s face, but not her feet.

As we were driving we all started hearing this strange new sound from the general vicinity of the girls. It was a swishing-suctioning kind of sound. After each time, there was a slight chuckle from the Little One. It was a classic Three Stooges-type moment for me. I’d hear the sound and turn around to see what it was, only to see nothing. I kept trying to anticipate when the sound would return and kept missing it. The Big One thought it was hysterical because she could clearly see what was going on.

After four or five times, I finally caught the Little One. She had dropped her water bottle down to her feet. It was sort of wedged between her feet, her car seat and the actual seat of the car.

She was squashing the bottle with her foot and making water shoot out of it. Yes the bottles are “spill-proof” in terms of turning them upside down or sideways, but they are definitely not spill-proof when you are squeezing them with all your might.

Thankfully it was only water.

    My Big One dumped an entire sippy of water on herself(intentionally) on the way to the post office when i was about 8mos preg and had downsized the diaper baggage and had no change of clothes. she looked like she’d had a horrible “dipe-saster”, but i had to carry her into the post office anyway because she refused to walk…:)

    Cute blog! Those hilarious moments with the LO are so memorable. I’m shocked that mine is growing up so fast already.

    Love it! That is such a classic kid thing and it made me laugh! I’m sure you thought it was really funny once everything dried out!
