A little 3-year-old girl was playing with her miniature tea set. Her father was in the living room and her mother was out shopping.
The little girl came out to the living room and offered her father a cup of tea, which was in fact just water. He thought this was really cute, so she did it several more times.
When the mother came home, the father had the mother stop and watch the little tea ritual, as her daughter brought the father another cup of tea (water) and he drank it. The mother said:
“Very nice. But has it occurred to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?”
