On a recent weekend when the grandkids stayed over — our 4-year-old grandson came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me that he had dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. All the while this happened on ‘grandpa’s’ watch, as I went to do the dinner dishes! I came right out of the kitchen and walked over to our grandson to calm him down, and I bravely fished out the toothbrush and threw it into the garbage. I looked in his eyes, and told him, grandma has another brand-new toothbrush just for him, and he should not worry anymore.
He stood there for a moment in pensive thought, and then ran into my bathroom just down the hall. In a flash, he came back with my toothbrush- held it up, and said with a charming little smile; “Well, I guess we better throw this one out too ‘cause it fell in the toilet the other night when we used your bathroom.”
Suddenly I felt nauseous.
Kids- you gotta love it.
