a first for everything.

cash has taken up a sudden fascination with the toilet.
we've been cautiously encouraging it because we really want him to get this potty training show on the road. (ps, the big boy undies that i thought would get him super excited? didn't.)
in the last few days he's been taking the fascination to a whole new level and has been flushing entire rolls of toilet paper down the toilet (which doesn't work, i might add.)
he also emptied half a box of kleenex into that bad boy.
needless to say, cash has been spending his fair share of time in time-out due to toilet related naughtiness.
but nate and i were thanking our lucky stars that he hadn't flushed something else.
you know, until yesterday.
i had a bit of a rough night sleeping wise so i was moving a little slow that morning.
i was fixing breakfast when i suddenly realized i didn't hear him in the living room.
in fact, i didn't hear him at all. which is always a sign of trouble.
right as i was walking towards the back of the house i heard the toilet flush and cash exclaim, "where'd it go? where'd it go?"
i found our sweet little three old holding a plastic cup, grinning ear to ear, standing over our open toilet.
which seemed rather innocent until i remembered that his fish bathtub toy was in that cup.
and now it wasn't.
didn't take a genius to figure out what happened there.
long story short, that little toy was really wedged in there.
so we are now the owners of a shiny new toilet.
on a positive note, we don't have to jiggle the handle anymore.
and it happened on one of nate's days off, which saved me from having to call a plumber.
so you know...there's that.

  1. This little guy sure can fool you with that innocent face. Funny, it's that same look that his momma used to get too. BTW, love the picture!
