The Streak is over!

I forgot to mention this in my last entry....
Larry and I have been married just over 9 years and we have 4 children (8 and under) and just the other day I was thinking... "It is amazing that with 4 small kids we have not had to have Larry snake one drain." He does this as part of his job (all though less now then in the past). Not to say we haven't ever had to plunge a drain. But with children often times other things get flushed and end up needing power tools to remove them...Well it finally happened! Saturday night while getting the kids teeth brushed, and all the potty stops done I thought that doesn't seem right. I did a double check and noticed the toilet was defiantly not flushing correctly (not over flowing just not filling and draining properly and I knew if someone did flush any toilet paper it was going to be a goner!) So I told Larry and he brought in the snake, pulled the toilet, and even ran his camera down the line we did find about 4 huge box staples. But we never did find the culprit. I am guessing this was a gift from Hayden I know she had just been playing near the toilet and more then once I have walked into a bathroom after her and had to pull a hotwheels car or something else out of the toilet because of her! So and hour and a half later we still didn't know what it was, but the problem was fixed! YEAH Daddy!
I told him I wanted to take a picture of him working on the toilet so I could put it on the blog and he looked at me like I was crazy.... maybe there is something wrong with me!?

Hayden would be my guess too. I just can't see the older kids doing that (although once in middle school some girl flushed another girl's swimming suit down the toilet. I think Amber was involved somehow, but not the the direct culprit or victim.)

I wouldn't put it past my other kids. Ethan recently (conference weekend) wrote on Amelia's new bunk bed! He swears that he didn't know it was wrong to write on furniture and walls! Plus Brock is the one who flushed the huge box staples! Only I believe that he didn't know that was wrong. They are kind of small compared to a swim suit, toys... But he is my most paranoid about the toilet over flowing too!

I can totally picture Larry's face as you asked him for a picture for the blog!! Too funny. I'm glad he could fix the problem for you. :)
