Why is it that kids are so excited by homestead emergencies? I got up this morning, let the dog out, and noticed a water line along the side of my house. I thought "Strange, it didn't rain last night, I wonder why there's water standing on my patio?" About that time, Miss Amanda (6) came running to me, eyes wild with excitement, and started happily screaming about the "water ALL OVER the kitchen!" I went to the kitchen, and lo and behold, she was right. There was about an inch of water in my kitchen! As I was darting about, getting every towel in the house to start soaking the mess, "A" followed me around, begging to call daddy because SHE wanted to be the one to break the joyous news (yup, pipes burst when he's gone). She was so excited, you would have thought it was Chrismas morning, and she had gotten the pony she's always wanted.
Next, Jonathan (12) decided to investigate the situation. He went to the laundry room located next to the kitchen, peeked behind the washing machine, and started hopping wildly about the room and laughing because the busted pipe behind the washing machine squirted him in the face.
Ha, ha, ha. Oh joy!
As A and J were hopping around and laughing, I turned my attention to David (4) who was splashing wildly in the water. Whoopeeeee! We're at Splashtown!
I'm just glad they didn't decide to make bubbles.....
