He's Weird, But We Love Him

Max has developed an obsession with water-play recently. This is great during bathtime or in the pool, but the obsession cannot be fed by these sanctioned activities alone. When going in or out of the bathroom, we now have to open the door a crack, sidle in or out, and then slam it behind us quickly. Otherwise, certain family members are in the bathroom and elbow-deep in the toilet before you can say "disgusting". On his birthday, for a treat, I sat him in the sink, with the water trickling over his toes, and let him hang out for awhile. The fact that Max considers this a treat, instead of some weird terrorist semi-torture, says something about his character. I don't know what it says, but it says something.

Julia is obsessed with toilet water, too.

As to what it says about Max's character, I don't know. Something beyond mortal comprehension, no doubt.
