Taking Leeli a Bath

The Affectionate One insisted on "Taking Leeli a bath."  Can you guess who ended up with the most water on her?  I'll give you a hint:  she only has two legs.

It was so fun to see my little girl give "her" little girl a little bath.  Leeli does not like getting wet.  At all.  Not even a little bit.  As in she's not getting anywhere near any kind of water, no matter how small, if she can help it.  Once she gives in to the process and stops fighting, she shakes like crazy.  And gives everyone within eyesight those big puppy dog eyes as if she is the epitome of a long suffering saint.  Which she ain't.  Just ask the carpet shampoo-er we've had to borrow multiple times.

I'm just sayin'.

And even after she's dry she shakes for a good half hour.  I think it's her way of getting more attention and being held a lot longer.  Neither The Affectionate One nor I are too put out to hold our little Leeli for as long as she'll let us.  Usually she is too busy to be held since she loves torturing our chocolate lab, Bear.  Or Tangerine our cat.  Bear loves the attention Leeli gives him.  Tangerine: not so much.

It's neat seeing The Affectionate One being  so nurturing and loving.  Not to mention taking on a chore so Mommy doesn't have to tackle it!  

Counting it all joy (even when it gets a little wet and wild),
