It's a source of mystery to my why my five year old can drop her popsicle and scream "Mom, Help Me" as if she were dying, and yet....
she can cause the toilet to overflow into a massive flood--
which travels out the door,
down our hall,
and drip through the floor boards,
causing it to "rain" in my basement laundry room
and all I get is a soft, squeeky "Mommy, there's a problem here."
