Something to be Thankful for...
I don’t normally post too many blog articles that are just stories about my family but this one’s a doozy and I need to share my pain.
The other night my son was asleep and I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth. I noticed the toothpaste was really watery and I rolled my eyes imagining what sort of dumb thing my child had done to it (in my household he does so many random things that if something isn’t on fire I usually don’t question it). So I brushed my teeth with the watery toothpaste. I repeat: I BRUSHED MY TEETH WITH IT‼‼‼ I went to bed and had a blissful night’s sleep.
The next morning my son says, “Oh mom, you didn’t use the toothpaste did you?” His tone of pure disgust and the look of pity made me pay attention. “Yes I did, why?” I asked wondering if I even wanted to know. “That toothpaste fell into the toilet last night,” he says.
Do you know what that means? That means I brushed my teeth with toilet water. I BRUSHED MY FREAKING TEETH WITH TOILET WATER‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼
Why did he put it back? Why didn’t he tell me what happened? Why didn’t he throw it away? He didn’t seem to know the answer to any of these questions. I told him I can’t believe I have to tell him that when things that belong in our mouths fall into the toilet we throw them away. Why wouldn’t that be common sense? Why do I have to tell him that? Sigh. He’s so lucky his mother’s love is unconditionalJ
Even though I doubt anyone can top this story I will throw out the gauntlet and issue a challenge to all of you parents. Have your kids ever done anything that was repulsive enough to top this? If not, I just gave you something to be thankful for this holiday season!
