Cup of Earl Grey?

teapartyMy cousin emailed this and it cracked me up.  Good morning LaV!

One day my mother was out and my dad was  in charge of me and my brother who is four years older than I  am. I was maybe 3 1/2 years old and had just recovered  from an accident in which my arm had been broken among other  injuries.

Someone had given me a little ‘tea set’ as a  get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in  the living room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was playing nearby in the living room when I brought Daddy a little  cup of ‘tea’, which was just water. After several cups of tea  and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad  made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was ‘just the cutest thing!!’

My Mom  waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of  tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up, then she says to  him, ‘Did it ever occur to you that the only place that baby can  reach to get water is the toilet??’
