The Sky is Falling!

While sitting at my computer, I saw an extremely short, blonde Chicken Little wannabe go screaming past me running as fast as her little legs could take her, yelling, "Ahhhhhhhh! The toilet's 'sploding, the toilet's 'sploding! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!"

It was overflowing. I stopped it and explained to said child what had actually happend. It had just clogged and that the toilet didn't actually explode. She's decided not to take any chances though and is now using the one upstairs instead. I don't expect her to actually flush again anytime soon! Not any toilet at home or anywhere else for that matter. Toilets are dangerous things and just too darn unpredictable.

Things are so much bigger than life when you're three.

Lol. Cute Kurt (or should I say Krut as the place card suggests.) Mine however is a Crane. They must have the same problem as the Kohlers.

Smiles.

P.S. One thing that I have learned from all of this is I know now never to flush when sitting! It can be hazardous to ones health.

Perhaps there was a potato in the toilet. After all, potatoes 'splode in the microwave!

That would be quite alarming for that to happen at any age, but three sweet years of age?? Bless her little heart!

The toilet over-flowing scares me too (LOL)! Your toddler sounds like a cutie! Aren't they fun at this age? :)

LOL. No Mr. Incredulous. I know someone in your family likes to soak potatos in the toilet. We people who like to try to flush a half roll of TP. That must be the price we pay to make sure a 3 year old feels she's clean.

P.S. I think of mish-mash when I see potatos now. [giggle]
