DIY Plumbing – Parent Style

It’s official, we are parents of a toddler. We’ve had our first child drops pencil in the toilet, parent is too distracted to remember to retrieve said item before flushing, parent gets to get creative to retrieve said item which has successfully flushed out of the bowl (though fortunately still in reach).


“Bubbles” PiElla says and signs for more (her own creation – pointer finger of her right hand stabbing enthusiastically into her left).

Other favorite new words: turtle, baby (“mama, daddy, baby!”). It seems like she gives a good try at saying most everything we throw at her these days.
