Really, this is a typical morning for us. I truly cannot make this up. My precious Penguin has my active mind that just goes and goes, and this is what she came up with the other morning after using the restroom.
I’m standing in front of the mirror brushing Penelope’s nest on my head as she comes over and we begin this conversation:
P: I figured it out
SB: Figured what out?
P: Where all the water goes when you flush the toilet.
I give a confused look her way….
P: It goes down the drain into the pipes down below where the turtles are.
So, in my mind I’m thinkin ninja turtles. I don’t mention this thought, I just assume she saw it on tv or talked about it on the playground.
SB: The turtles?
P: Yes, and the wipes you flush too.
SB: Very confused now…What do the turtles do with the wipes?
P: The people that sell them get them out. They get the wipes off of the turtles
Realizing we have passed Donatello and the pizza at this point..
SB: There is a turtle store down there?
P: Yes, the turtle store is there. And when you go buy them they make sure the wipes aren’t there.
SB: Okay. Smiling on the inside because I just had a conversation with myself.
We quickly switch stations, keep up!
P: Wow, the sandman visited this eye last night!

Well that was just delightful. As the mother of a daughter who is almost 28 years old and triplets you are almost 21 years old I enjoy reliving some of those fabulous moments when the conversation goes willy-nilly and you have to try to keep up. Enjoy. And I hate to tell you this but my plumber told me a whole list of supposedly flushable items that we should not flush. I’m just saying.
Thank you! I agree, I really don’t like the flushable items, but at least we know the turtles are clean 😉 😉
