Turd Burgler

Leaving a house full of boys in the care of their father is well, daunting. There are many little crisis and catastrophes that I deal with so routinely as to render them run-of-the- mill occurrences; but to a dad, off at work most days, run-of-the-mill occurrences become a challenge of wits and ingenuity.

Last night I worked from 3:00 to 9:00 pm. Around 10:30 pm just as I was drifting off to sleep, Adorable Hubby said, "While you were at work one of the kids left a turd in the toilet that wouldn't flush down".

"What did you do?" I muttered.

"I had to get a knife and cut it up. It was that bad!"

"Mmmphhh so it all worked out?" I mumbled, really, really, close to asleep.

"Yeah." He yawned.

Suddenly I was wide awake.


Aren't you glad I'm back?
Don't answer that.

It's nice that you now have an official turd knife. Because you will never want to use it for anything else!

Why do poo stories still make me laugh like a 5 year old. I'm still laughing.

I wish you would post EVERYDAY!!! You make me laugh so hard that I cry. I was having a crappy day (no pun intended) until I read this. My hubby wants to know which # laid cable like that. He wants to make sure they never do it at our house. HaHaHa!!!! :) Thanks for the laugh.

lol I grew up with four brothers...and now I have 3 sons and 4 daughters...can I say,
"been there, done that"? Noone tells you the awful gross things you will face as a mother. That stuff certainly isn't on a list anywhere.
Thx for stopping by my blog!
