Come, Mommy

Hypothetically Speaking

Let us conduct a thought experiment.

Let us suppose that a mother changed her 2-year-old son's diaper. Let us further suppose that she then proceeded to the kitchen, five feet away from the child, to wash her hands. Now let us assume that the child had access to a marker. Would it be possible for the child to cover himself with body art in the time that it took the mother to wash her hands?

Since the child would have to work at essentially light speed for such an event to happen, one might reasonably conclude that there would not be enough time for the child to draw over large portions of his body. Not in the time needed for a quick hand-washing. Correct?

One would not expect the mother to be greeted by anything resembling the picture below, now would one?



Good. I'm so relieved to know that I am simply imagining all similar events from this afternoon.

Thank goodness Daddy is in charge of bathtime.
