My Life Is A Toilet (And Other Untruths)


Tonight I walked into the bathroom to spy Tiny taking a drink from a cup. Given I know she struggles with the tap, I asked her where the water was from (hoping like mad she'd say the full bathtub).

"Toilet."

Egads! My Tiny little blue eyed girl is drinking toilet water.

And then Matt piped in with: "The only other animal I know that drinks water from the toilet is a cat."

Awesome. She's in good company.
It ain't San Pellegrino. Or Evian. Or even Mount Franklin.

oh O_o i thought this was about the cat.. i am glad my son has a healthy fear of 'toilet germs' then (which did not exactly help the potty training). our dogthing does it regularly. have stopped using any of these fresh tabs and stuff because of it..

i'm going to tell the truth here...unfortunately, i've seen worse. over christmas, i watched as my little (almost two) girl reached into her nappy, pulled out her finger (with poo on it) and put it into her mouth....it was like slow motion....i couldn't stop her....totally disgusting, i hope she learned.

second story....last july, i walked in on that same daughter splashing (as she does in her bathtub) toilet water all over her head.

i realize these two stories make me seem like a neglectful mother....really, i'm not.

thanks for your comment yesterday, i'll keep sharing my thoughts here with you, but stop by my blog sometime....

Love you Tiny. Let's just hope the toilet had been flushed prior to the drinking episode. I know some people around here often forget...
