Mom, it's raining in the pantry!

Yes, that is an actual sentence recently uttered by our nine year old son. How is that possible? Well, actually it was pretty effortless for our six year old son to accomplish. You see, we sent him upstairs to start his bath water. He knows exactly where to point the handle to get the perfect temperature. He also knows that the water is not to go above his belly button (while sitting in the tub of course). Now I know what you're thinking and no, he did not overflow the bathtub. Hubby went upstairs to check on him and immediately noticed water coming from under the closed bathroom door. Upon opening said door, water gushed out into the hallway. Tater Tot was seated comfortably in the tub and apparently could not hear the water over-flowing in the sink because the water was still running in the tub as well. When hubby showed him what he'd done, he was so very upset and apologetic. "I just wanted to see if my boat would float," he said. His Gee had given him a new pirate ship a few days before. He ran water in the sink to see if it would float before putting it in the tub. He then got into the tub, forgetting to turn the water off at the sink. Inside the entire vanity was soaked. The clean towels I'd just put in a few hours before to the toothbrushes and toothpaste floating in the drawer. And, as you can see from the picture, the water was not just contained to the bathroom. Now, you know how to make it rain in your pantry. Although pretty cool in the effects department, not so good for the cereal boxes actually in the pantry. Needless to say, Tater Tot is now supervised any time he's in the bathroom!


  1. That will be a funny story one day. I am sure it doesn't seem so funny right now though.

  2. Oh my goodness. I had a son that flooded the bathroom. We had to retile the whole room, new baseboards, et... Ah the joys of boys.


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
