Tadpole really likes experiments, and a few months ago we put a few flowers in water dyed with food coloring and watched the results. Tonight, while we were looking over our garden, Tadpole grabbed a lily stem. R suggested we put it in a vase:
Yeah and then we'll put in water and food coloring and wait and watch it grow and see the colors!
I was delayed a few minutes in following Tadpole in. When I got inside she'd already gotten out the food coloring.
Yeah but first I got a stool and then I opened up the cabinet and I was reaching for the food coloring but then the stool was sloping and then I was floating in the ocean* but then I reached even more and I got the food coloring and then I got the stool back over and I climbed down.
Below is a picture of the corner where the food coloring is kept. I'm just glad nothing was broke. And she didn't try to get a vase down as well.
