Washed the syrup out

I was sitting at the dining room table, sewing.

whirr whirr whirr

Peter was sitting at the dining room table, singing.

I paid him no mind until he said, “Mommy, can I wash my hands?”

I looked up and realized he had been playing with the syrup on his breakfast plate.

squish squish squish

Both hands were covered, dripping.

I took him to the sink, and he continued singing.

Itsy bitsy spider,” said I.

Icky bicky,” insisted he.

“No, itsy bitsy meaning tiny, not icky bicky meaning cover-your-hands-in-syrup,” I chided.

“But I can’t say itsy bitsy,” he said.

“Why not?” I queried.

“I free {three}. I can’t say itsy bitsy,” he said clearly enunciating every word.
