We'll call this one "Peed Upon"

After dinner tonight Sam said to Doug,

"I feo in da toiyet today."

Which reminded me of the story of when Sam fell in the toilet. Which happened earlier today.

(In Adrian Monk's voice)
"Here's what happened;"

All was peaceful in the Dub household. Six-year-old Max was playing happily in the family room. Mom and Sam were in the bathroom giving the baby a bath. Sam sat on the toilet seat supervising while Mom perched on the edge of the tub.

After a few minutes, Sam stood up and reached into the tub to grab a toy. At the same moment, Max came rushing into the room, threw the toilet seat up, and proceeded to (to put it bluntly) pee.

And then time seemed to slow...

You may see where I'm going with this...

Sam, with eyes still on the bathtub, stepped back to sit again. Only the toilet seat and lid were no longer down! They were both up!

So he fell right in.

And was peed upon by a bewildered Max.

It was all very dramatic. There were shouts from Max and tears from Sam. Sam was immediately stripped and plopped into the tub while I mopped up the mess.

I think the moral here is, "Always look before you sit down." Either that or "Pee with caution". Whichever works for you.
Either way, a good time was had by all.
(No, it wasn't.)
Gotta go. I have laundry to do.

I almost "peed" myself as I was reading this post! I can't stop laughing - that's a GREAT story!

So weird. The same thing happened to me the other day when Mr. Dub came in to use the bathroom.

Hey Emily. It's your long lost cousin Korinne (Barson) Cowley. Your blog is great! I love reading your stories! So sorry about the pee story. We have had some funny things similar with my kids. Hope all is well! Here is my blog: cowfamily.wordpress.com. Have a good day!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Seriously, I have tears in my eyes!! Poor Sam. Poor Max. Poor Emily.

Thanks, Em. I laughed out loud. Also, I always want to comment on your book selections and wish there was a designated place for that. Life of Pi is one of my all-time favorite books. Love, love loved it. I also read The Girl in Hyacinth Blue, but somehow can't remember any sex scene. Hmmmmm, I guess that's the benefit of having Alzheimer's.
Expect news on the Boston front shortly.

okay, that is so classic. You'll be telling that one for a long time. At least the tub was ready for him . . .

The Valentine Fam said...

That was great. Thanks for the laugh. You always have the greatest stories!

OK Em!
Since your brother thinks... is good for..., Sam will just never get...!
So see all is good! Max was actually a helper!
If you can't fill in the blanks, then you have lived away from Brandon for way too long, so you can just email for the correct filler words.
Dear Emily's friends,
Feel spared!

Jen said...

What a great story! I had to share that one with the hubby and we were both laughing - of course I do feel sorry for the aftermath that you had to go through!

So . . . what do I have to do in order to be a friend that blogs? Also, your reading is admirable, but out of control - when do you have a spare moment? I don't have any!!

You have to blog frequently without taking 10 month long breaks!
