Boogers and Sharks

Nathan was full of funny answers yesterday.

As I'm putting the pizza into the oven, Nathan asks me, "Are you making pizza for dinner?". "Yes, I am. Do you want to eat some pizza?" Then he says, "I'm not hungry anymore; I already ate!" So I ask, "Oh really, what did you eat?" Nathan replies, "Um... a booger...."

That must of been SOME booger. I think it was more likely the cookies he kept sneaking.

After dinner was NOT eaten and before the boys left for Wednesday evening church, Josiah tells me that he just flushed Nathan's underwear on accident. I start laughing. He looks at me and says, "No, I really did. I didn't know they were in there and I flushed them." I tried to pull off a rescue operation with the plunger but, man, they were GONE. This happened while I was commenting on Kate's blog so here's my instant reaction:

"Hey! Guess what? My toilet is awesome! A kid's pair of underwear just got flushed by accident and the toilet didn't even get clogged. So long, Super Hero briefs."

Yep. Nathan wasn't too thrilled. "I want my underwear back!", he whined. Sorry, dude, they aren't coming back.

Later, my friend let me on this: "Sarah...he's a funny one. This evening during class I asked him if he needed to go to the restroom. He said 'No, I told you I already went.' I said okay, just making sure. Then he said that he couldn't go in there...that there were sharks in the toilet. I said oh... well they have to go they can't stay there. What a funny kiddo. I do enjoy having him in class."

Sharks. I had not heard that one before. Where does he come up with these things?

Thankfully, if there are sharks in our toilet.... THEY DON'T STAND A CHANCE.

Ahhh the mysteries of the toilet. Thankfully our new toilet is more capable than our last...the old one would clog if you even THOUGHT about taking a pee.

Any day with boogers and sharks is a good day. I'm happy your toilet kept working:)

I love this post.

Apparently you aren't blessed with the super-economical and energy star low-flow toilets that grace our house. We save money and the environment with those babies, but boy, they can barely handle the business end of a Big Gulp.

I love kids ... too funny. ;0) The stories my toilet could tell -- of lost items and too much toilet paper.

Hate to tell ya, but boys don't get any less gross as they get older! ;0)

Laura said...

Oh, my...your house sounds like mine -- except I have FOUR sons! Loved the story!

Come on over for some encouragement and mom inspiration!
