The Toilet

Is it just because I EC? Or does every kid find the toilet fascinating. You throw something in there, flush it, and it goes away! Well, Ben certainly finds the toilet fascinating. I have had to fish out and sterilize numerous toys. I have had to have the plumber come previously to unclog our toilet. $80 later, the plumber told me that it was just a toy that had been flushed down the toilet, and we couldn't get it out without the right tools.

Well, today, Ben threw in my electronic metronome. The kids have thrown in so many toys that it didn't even phase me. I just calmly used the toilet brush and fished it out. Are you wondering if it still works? The answer is no, so it's now in the bathroom garbage. Well, since I teach music, and I'm about to get three new students in the new year, I need a metronome. I may just have to break down and buy an old fashioned one where you set the weight, and it ticks back and forth. It's too heavy for my kids to throw into the toilet.
