Try to think of the most wonderful way to spend your little girl's third birthday. Now try to guess how we spent ours. After a fun night of gifts and cake, our daughter took one of her new toys upstairs as we stayed down and cleaned after the party. She had a mermaid doll that was beautiful with a pink and purple tail...what could possibly go wrong? As we reminisced with our hands full of dishes, little did we know that she was creating a place for her mermaid to swim. Somehow she thought that if she put toilet paper in the bathroom sink upstairs to "keep the water in" she could make an ocean for her new friend. The "ocean" then spilled over the sink, and (why not) covered the whole bathroom floor. By the time my husband and I had the downstairs clean and headed up for the night, we were greeted to the sounds of running water and happiness. I think my husband's exact words were, "SERIOULSY?! Are you KIDDING ME?! Can we go ONE DAY?!" Yes, that's how we spent the evening of our baby girl's third birthday...buckets, towels and sopping wet clothes...and one happy little three year old girl holding her new best friend.
