Things that make you go hmmm....

after disaster control, that is.

I heard a blood curdling scream from the bathroom, and from the sound of it our son was missing an appendage. I ran into the bathroom. There stood Matthew with one foot in the metal trash can, and the other foot in the toilet that was filled with poop!

I stripped off his clothes and put him in the tub. He had bruised and scraped up the foot that landed in the trash can, hence the ear piercing screams. After he was cleaned and bandaged, (hysterical the entire time, no less), he calmed down enough to take some motrin and talk.

"How did you end up in the trash can and toilet?"

"I don't know."


An hour later he seemed fully recovered and was running around harassing his sister.

Side note: Regrettably his timing for his misadventure was poor, and Melissa awoke prematurely from a much needed nap. Sigh.

Strangely hilarious. How does a kid end up trapped in a toilet full of poop and a trash can???
