How do kids always seem to know the most inconvenient time for childish inconveniences?

It’s the newborn who explodes through his diaper the one time you are out without a change of clothes.

It’s the toddler who announces she needs to go potty RIGHT NOW, when you are already running late, and just finished buckling everyone into the car.

Today, it was the 4-year-old who spilled her freshly made carrot juice all over the table, the floor, and her clothes, right after I had put in their colored laundry.  Argh.  How do they do that?  So many times my girls have messed their clothes in one way or another  just after that category of clothes was washed.

Their timing is impressive.
