Let me first explain: My children don’t flush the toilets at our house — at all! I’ve taught them not to; it’s much too risky. Our disgraceful toilets overflow with two squares of toilet paper in them!
Even for skilled flushers, such as my husband and myself, sometimes we can’t shut off the water in time. Our toilets have overflown two times only this past month! Yuck — I know!
So, after six years and countless overflows, we found a decent deal, and made an oh-so-long-overdue investment.
Yesterday, my plumbing miracle arrived!
We were also awaiting my parent’s arrival from out of state and my three-year-old (Mase) got a little confused. He asked the plumber, “Grandpa, you go jump on the trampoline with me?”
Thankfully, my six-year-old daughter let Mase know that the plumber was not Grandpa by laughing hysterically for at least five minutes. Big sisters are good like that.
(drum roll please)
we have flushable nonoverflowing toilets!
It’s been such a beautiful thing! I giddily spent the rest of the day flushing and reminding my kids to flush. Now if I could just get my toddler to stop splashing in the toilet water.
Grumpy Grateful Mom Goal of the Day: Staying grateful for my overflowing blessings,
and my nonoverflowing ones.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!
