My little one likes to clean... the toilet... with his brother's toothbrush.
So last night we get home from getting the boys from school and daycare. We've had a typical night of wrestling, tickling and screaming. My oldest managed to down an entire Tostinos pizza along with part of his brother's pizza as well.
So our oldest has been lying lately, so whenever he comes up with something to tell me, I approach the situation with a cautious mind. Last night however, he was not lying.
There I am about to go out to the shed to get some paint for a project I've been working on, hubby was wrangling the troops to get ready for bed and I suddenly am stopped dead on my tracks by our oldest boy. "This is really reall really serious this time!!!! I'm SERIOUSSSS!" he screams. Of course I am ready for a tale of how his little 2 year old brother was mean to him or something of the sort, but I was not prepare for this. "He has my toothbrush in the toilet!"
Well, he wasn't lying. We walked in the bathroom to find a pullup clad 2 year old with the evidence in his hand, a Wolverine toothbrush that belonged to his brother, toilet seat up and water all over the place. Well played, sir.
Thankfully we always have extras on hand, so this wasn't a complete loss for the evening. It actually turned out good, the extra toothbrush happened to be Transformers, so he was thrilled. We explained to the little toothbrush spoiler that he will not be using toothbrushes to clean the toilet anymore, and that because of his actions, bubby got a new toothebrush and he did not.
I'm thinking about making the toilet cleaning his responsibility now, since he is already trying!
