Earlier this morning, Little Brother and TheDad invaded the kitchen for their Weekend Pancake Ritual, complete with sprinkles on the pancakes.
After the pancakes were all made, Little Brother poured himself a cup of ice water and headed to the dining room to chow down. On the way, he brushed by a dish towel that was hanging over the back of a chair, and knocked it to the floor. So he bent over to pick up the towel while still holding his water cup--spilling ice water everywhere.
"This rag never says here," he muttered to himself as he started wiping up the spill with the offending towel. "Mom, I made a mistake!"
Then I heard TheDad intervene: "Little Brother, let me take your water cup while you wipe up the spill. This way you won't make another mistake."
