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!"
