Mom went shopping, leaving Dad in charge of their daughter. Suzie was about 18 months old and loved playing with her new tea set. Dad was engrossed in the evening news when Suzie brought him a little cup of ‘tea’ (really just plain water).
He praised her good ‘cooking,’ so she brought him more. After several cups of ‘tea,’ and much praise, Mom came home.
“Honey, watch this,” said Dad and had her wait in the living room as Suzie brought him another cup of tea.
“Isn’t she just the cutest?”
Mom waited until he had polished off yet another cup of ‘tea’ before asking, “Did you ever think that the only place a baby can get water is the toilet?!”
