Bath Time

Little Girl at the 1984 World's Fair, held in New Orleans, LA. (Image by Christopher Porché West)

Mother, on a night when there are four adults present who are all equally capable of giving The Four-Year-Old her bath: “Who should give you a bath, The Four-Year-Old?”

The Four-Year-Old: “No one! (slight pause) Except for God.”

Happy Holidays from all of us at Caterpickles Central. (Or as The Four-Year-Old likes to say, “Holly Hoppidays!”)


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
