What a load of CR*P!



So, on Sunday, Jaydon came running down stairs to tell us he has pulled a large marker-size toy out of the kids' toilet. Then he said that the "water won't go down" when he flushed. Ryan ran upstairs, plunger in hand, and went to work...in vain. We locked the bathroom door and we forlornly faced the fact that we were going to have to pay big bucks to have the plummer come out. All fingers were pointing at little Ezra, who just newly discovered the fun of dropping things into the toilet (but doesn't know how to flush yet). Well, we heard that some friends had done a plumming job themselves and Ryan was determined.
48 hours of having no use in that bathroom Ryan set out to clear the clog! I avoided the whole situation, of coarse, by taking an extra long time putting the kids to bed. Ryan stuck his head in the kids' room and mentioned something about getting some part at Lowes. When I came down stairs 1/2 an hour later...THIS (along with a HORRIBLE smell) is what I found on the kitchen floor!!! yep, a poo bag! Of coarse I had to get the camera...too bad you can't "smell" a picture! He forgot to take it out to the trash with him on his way out the door! YUCK! Here is my hero, cleaning out the poo poo mess from the clogged toilet. Needless to say, we saved a bunch of money, and Ezra is innocent...just don't let your five year old use 8 "flushable" wipes to clean himself after he's done his duty! Way to go Ryan! You saved the day...and $300!.

Emily and I enjoyed reading about the bag of poo. Of course I had to edit the title with her by my side. Her eyes were wide open as she saw the bag on the kitchen floor. Way to go Ryan. Now you can buy a new camera lens with the money you saved! he.

Thank you for sparing us all and taking the picture of the OUTSIDE of the bag only!! I love you Kelly but I don't want to see your poo.

Kelly, I love your blogs.. they bring so many emotions out... like laughter and dry heaves all at the same time.

Laughing so hard I don't even know what to say. Luckily we haven't had any of those experiences yet, but I know that they will come!
