Is This Funny...

...I thought it was, but maybe it was just a break in my sanity. Of course it is one of my shameless crazy kid stories...what else could it be???

While Brian was gone, I wasn't quite sure how to go about getting Ayden's hair cut...Anjolie gave me a clue, when she walked in to the bathroom and saw me cutting Aydens hair, she said "Mommy, do you know what you are doing?".."Nope!" I replied... in my best homeschool mom grammer.."I sure don't". I did think better of my original idea and decided to just stop before I had to buzz off all his hair and really hear it from Anjolie and everyone else for that matter. I got the vac. to clean up the hair I had already cut and saw no harm in putting the hose down for a second while I ran to check dinner on the stove. Multi-tasking doesn't always take into account the quick mind of a 2 year old boy. I was NOT gone more than about 10 seconds, as the bathroom is just adjacent to the kitchen. Time was of no importance I am sure, for, when I returned, I found little Ayden standing with my poor vac hose in hand and grinning as he watched the contents of the toilet disappear into my beatiful canister vac....!!!!! The past 7 years I had with that trusty hunk of galvanized steal suddenly flashed through my mind...the money we spent on that thing, the messes it had so faithfully cleaned, so dutiful, so reliable and most importantly ...would this little mishap be, by any chance, covered by the warranty???? I honestly, in that moment, didn't know whether to scream or laugh, so I did both. I am a wiser woman after seeing that..I had NO idea the mischief little boys could get into, nor did I know that a vac could be so tough!! When I pulled out the SOPPING wet mes of a bag, there was about 2.5 to 3 inches of water in the bottom...it had not gotten into the motor. I really truly think the Lord had to be laughing about that one...seriously. So, come on, isn't that funny? Or, am I losing my mind hahahaha... or both. :)

I think it's funny.... but probably because it happened to you! If it had happened to me I don't think I would have reacted quite so well. But I can give a big hearty laugh at your expense!!

Yes, that is funny! Your post made me think of all the times my bestest girlfriend Beth (the one I always said you reminded me of--and the mother of 6 kids) would call me when her kids did stuff like this. She always knew that I would laugh, which in turn helped her to the see humor in it too...even through her tears. : )

That is so funny and what a boy thing to do. My brother has some stories that involve him and the toilet. Im sure he was just wondering how fast the vacuum could suck up water since it suck up his hair so fast.

Heather said...

:) Well, I am glad that you found it funny too...it is so good to be back.

Deby, I don't think we could EVER own a fish tank..I can just imagine the stories that would result from that.

Pam :) I know YOU aren't surprised lol...((hug))

Kristi...yes, just one of MANY little adventures!

Melissa-"gets better"??? Oh boy...no pun intended.

Miss Mishel...It is such a comfort to know that there is someone else in the world at least a little like me :) She and I should have been sisters it seems...lol.

Tiffany...and your brother turned out fine right? So there's hope? lol :)
