Okay, I know this is a bit late, but it's too funny not to share.

So my middle son, the creative one, the one who taped his cracked tooth together so carefully that you couldn't even tell it was taped, just to be sure the tooth fairy would still want his tooth.

Anyway, he's up to his old tricks again.

It was April fools and I never told any of my kids. In fact, I forgot about it myself. I shouldn't have, though, because he always does something. Salt in the sugar bowl, sugar in the salt shaker, whoopie cushion on your chair, etc.

Well this time he really got me.

I used to tell the boys when they were potty training, don't wait to go to the bathroom. When you first feel the urge coming on, then go. You don't want to wet your pants. See where I'm going with this yet? I'll bet you're on the right track.

Anyway, I was caught up in something and wanted to finish, so (can you guess? Yup, I held it) I had to go sooooooo bad, I finally ran to the nearest toilet. I'm dancing around trying to get the stupid thing open while not wetting my pants. We're talking about a women who's had four children. Let's just say the bladder is NOT what it used to be. I'm talking cross your legs and say a prayer when you sneeze kind of bladder. So back to my story. I bend down to get a closer look, and ....... the tape meister has struck again. He's taped the freaking toilet lid to the seat. The boys can go to the bathroom just fine, but for me to go would be to sit on the edge of the porcelin or fall in!!!

I give up and run to the second toilet upstairs. Ugh! The tape meister has been there too. I finally run to my own bathroom, and yes, you guessed, the little devil struck again. So by now I'm cursing, hopping, crossing my legs as I pick at the tape and finally get the freaking lip open when a head pops around the corner and yells, "April fools!" I slammed the door in his face and nearly collapsed on the toilet in relief. When I came out of the bathroom he just shrugged and said, "Hey, don't me mad at me. You're the one held it!"

Smart cookie!

PS. It's my day to post on the Fly Girl Blog. Check it out.

HILARIOUS! You must have passed down your funny gene to your kids because the stories you tell about them are too funny. Isn't it irritating when your words come back to bite you? And he's so young too. Most people don't have to hear their own advice coming back from their kids until much later. *snicker, snicker* But seriously, this is funny. I know it's going in a book. It has to.

Thanks for the laugh,

my kids always put plastic wrap on the seats so that when you pee, it doesn't go in the toilet, but on the floor.

I love being a guy. The whole world is my toilet.

Swishy said...

LOL ... that's a classic one!

Dorky Dad said...

I'm writing that one down so I can remember it. Thanks for the joke! And I'll make sure to inform my wife where it came from, so you get proper credit.

Frannie Farmer said...

Where DOES that kid get his wit? I just can't imagine .. I am certain that this is the difference between boys and girls -- boys remember the fun, potetially exciting or even scary days ... girls remember the days they can or must get dressed up or prettified for!
That is a TERRIFIC post Kari.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Gotta love kids and the crazy things they do, especially mine. Like I said, I love having kids in my newest book. This will be my ultimate payback;))

It's nice to have a little prankster to break up the day every so often. I can imagine with 4 kids, it never gets dull.
