some toddler messes are theologically significant . . . most, NOT

What can make her think that it's a good idea to pour most of a bottle of water into her cereal? Or to then try to climb down her stool with it? Carry it half way around the house? All I ask is that until I finish my first cup of coffee, any messes she make not be ones that have to be dealt with immediately. Shouldn't even two year olds have more sense than this? Oye. Emergency prayer: oh-help-God-help-oh-help

You know what Anne Lamott says: the most significant prayers are "Help me, help me, help me" and "Thank You, thank You, thank You".

Fortunately, they outgrow this kind of craziness but they exchange it for others.
