Here’s a conversation I was witness to the other day. It was all Trey and I could do to keep a straight face. But before I go any further, let me explain that it involves the toilet and whether or not it has been flushed. You know the saying, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.”? Well, as adults, Trey and I sometimes follow this – old habit from when we were in a drought – but we always encourage the kids to flush every time.
Heard from Little Man in the bathroom:
“Daddy, you didn’t…! ” Little feet pad down the hallway.
“Daddy, come with me. Come with me.” They walk down the hall together.
“Did you do this?”
“Nope, not me,” Trey says, possibly because it’s what the kids tell us all the time. Payback, you know.
“You have to flush when you use the bathroom!”
“Ok, I’ll do better next time.”
Nothing like being scolded by an almost-4 year old.
