How did you know?

Adelaide walks out of the bathroom and into the living room and grabs a new outfit from the pile of laundry I’m folding.

Adelaide: I’m going to wear something else.

Mommy: What happened to your old outfit?

Adelaide: It got a little wet.

Mommy: Did you put it in the laundry basket?

Adelaide: Yeah.

Mommy: So it’s not on the floor of the bathroom?

Adelaide: It’s not on the floor of the bathroom.


Adelaide: Oh, I’m not telling the truth. (Heads to the bathroom.) How did you know?
