I shared this picture on Instagram the other day along with this:
Meet Cade. Lover of Nutella and shover of 15 alphabet blocks down my bathroom toilet. #GoodThingHeIsCute
You can’t make this stuff up, people.
And as it turns out, it was actually 16 alphabet blocks. Plus an oddly-shaped block from a train set that never should have fit down the drain in the first place that my husband finally set free after taking a sledgehammer to the toilet.
Yes – our two-year-old broke our toilet. They always warn you about saving up for those huge college tuition bills – but somehow I missed the memo about setting aside some cash for toddler potty damage. We’ll have enough to get in touch with a company like Sarkinen plumbing in Portland, so we can get the toilet repaired. And tell me – how do you stay mad at a face like that for more than a minute?
Turns out we should add another line item to our budget – Cade.
Either that or we need to send him to plumbing school real soon.
How about you? Have any tales of woe about surprising expenses you were never warned about?
