This Can’t Be Good…

Tater Tot:  Oh, nooooooooo!  MAMA! Copper (helicopter) is gone!  It’s gooooooone!

Imagine hearing this and the sound of a flushing commode, then turning around to see your two-year-old standing over the commode.

I don’t think this bodes well for our plumbing future, because the copper that Tater Tot sent to its watery death is actually a wooden puzzle piece from the Melissa & Dougtransportation puzzle.

I’m more than a little concerned.


Edited at 12:25 on October 9:  Um, yeah.  So the thing is not flushing.  So I’m off to do whatever it is that you do when this happens.  Like call the plumber and get out the checkbook.  That’s okay.  We really didn’t want to buy groceries  anyway……  🙂

In hindsight, yes…yes, we should have put those toilet locks on.

    Oh no. Watch THAT can. Eldest flushed my deoderant down the toilet when he was 19 months. We had no clue what had happened. We snaked the toilet. Didn’t work. Had a plumber come out. Cost bucks.

    Any chance it actually fell *behind* the toilet?

    You’ll know pretty soon. If the thing won’t flush, it’s trouble. I’ve had little plastic cowboys get stuck and we had to replace the whole dang toilet. On the other hand, a plastic fish went through with no problem. There’s no predicting it. Good luck with that.
