Apparently, I was not specific enough yesterday after the, ahem, "incident". I was very clear that toys are NOT to be flushed down any of the toilets in our house or any house.
It did not occur to me to mention that toys should not actually be put down ANYTHING in the house, including, but not limited to, air vents in the floor:
I know that doesn't look like many toys, but here's what actually came out once I finished the spontaneous scavenger hunt:
Unfortunately, it also did not occur to me to mention that the ONLY things that are acceptable to put in toilets are toilet paper and the category of things-that-come-out-of-your-body.
So the boys figured the bathroom hand towel was fair game.
In their defense (though why I'm defending the Almost Three Year Old and Cousin at this point, I'm unsure), I did, technically, ask the Cousin if it would be all right if the next time he used the bathroom the Almost Three Year Old could watch, to get an idea of how "big boys" use the toilet. The Cousin sweetly obliged. It just seemed odd that they were laughing so much after using the bathroom. But I guess when you are 3 and 4 years old, it is hysterically funny to make multiple attempts to flush a towel down the toilet....
So we had to have a bath:
Luckily, they are all ridiculously cute.
If you are interested in seeing the Cleanest Bathroom Floor in America, please feel free to drop by our house. After two days in a row of being scrubbed, it is spotless. We may eat dinner off of it tonight...
