Famous Last Words

I realize it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog, but I wanted to start documenting little things about Austin again so I don't forget. So, I don't know how frequent these posts will be, but I am going to give it a try.

There have been a lot of times over the years that I have looked at other people and said, "My kids won't ever do that!" I have since learned that you should never say that because you will eat those words!

I came across a situation like that just last week! I have heard countless stories of things that kids have flushed down the toilet and always thought, "Now how hard could it be to keep a child out of the toilet if you just pay attention to them?" Well, now I know!

I had gone to the bathroom and, of course, Austin was running around the bathroom just waiting for a chance to get into some kind of mischief. (I also have come to understand that I lost the ability to go to the bathroom alone when I became a mother.) When I was done, I went to wash my hands. Our vanity is in a separate room from the toilet and shower, so I walked around the corner.

Austin was right behind me.

The next thing I knew, I could hear splashing. I ran into the bathroom to get what I was sure was a little boy splashing his hands in the toilet. However, what I did not count on was finding him holding my new Android cell phone over his head after just dunking it in the water!

I screamed "Noooooo!" and ran over to grab it. I dried it off really quickly with a towel and then took it in to dry it with the cool setting on the hair dryer. Austin was very proud of himself and pranced around me looking so innocent! (But I know he was gloating inside!)

Thankfully, the phone is still working, but I am not sure how long my luck will run. That is the last time I let Andrew talk me out of buying a warranty!

Too funny! I'm glad you're back in the blogging world!


You are so right about the famous last words--don't ever say or think "my kids would never . . ." because then they will. I have been blogging about the kids over on our site--hope you can come over & "see" them!
