Last Christmas Aunty Jenny gave Sam (then unborn) his first book. We now have to religiously bring it out when he bathes for it is a vinyl Elmer the Elephant bath book. Well, this evening Sam and I were enjoying a nice relaxing bubble bath together before bedtime when he reached forward for his story, eagerly grabbed it with both hands, and squirted me in the face.
On closer inspection I realised that the front page has a built in squirty feature that sucks in water and then shoots it out when pressed. It’s only taken me six months to not figure this out. The picture on the cover is a bit of a clue too because Elmer is shown squirting water over himself from his trunk.
I feel so dense.
