He looks so innocent doesn't he?
We had been having trouble again with one of our toilets. We bought a snake and tried pushing whatever was jammed in it through. It would work for awhile, but kept filling up whenever the kids would take a poo. Today, it finally wouldn't go down so we had to bite the bullet and call the plumber. As Jacob blissfully napped, the plumber had to push, pull, yank, and take the entire toilet out to get a 10 cent toy out of it! This is the second time in two months we have had to call this plumber. Oh, his name is Casey! We are on first name basis now. It ended up costing $151 instead of $170. He only charged us for an hour and a half even though he was here well over two hours. He must have felt sorry for us. The kids were just fascinated with the whole process and talked his ear off. I was afraid they were bugging him but he said he really enjoyed talking with them and he said my hands were full of blessings. Did I hear that correctly? I didn't get the usual, "Lady, your hands are full!" or "Wow, that's a lot of kids!". His tip was a piece of fresh-baked Blueberry Buckle cake.
I love this picture of Andrew sitting on the trampoline asking Casey tons of questions. Andrew loves to know how things work.
O.K., any ideas how to keep a toddler from throwing things in the toilet? This is getting expensive!
