Yesterday I am finishing the breakfast dishes and I pause and hear splashing and flushing noises coming from the bathroom… “Oh no Ariel! Look out, the dinosaur is coming!” I already know what is going on before I get there but sure enough, the girls are playing in the toilet like it is a water table, flushing every now and again for effect. I rhetorically ask, “What are you doing!?!” They respond as if it were commonplace, “We’re playing in the toilet.” I waited for them to pick up on my evil stare. They didn’t so I
yelled politely requested “Don’t play in the toilet!!!!” They got the message. I filled up the tub and the adventures of Ariel vs. Dinosaur continued…in a more sanitary environment.
