Teach Your Children Well...OR ELSE

We have had our fair share of gross-ness around our home. But this evening we managed to take things to a whole new level. A certain child ran out of toilet paper while using the basement bathroom. Instead of screaming for help, like everyone else does, this child used not one or two but three sheets of paper towels to finish the job.

Flash forward to the discovery. Carlie was taking a shower and heard the toilet making strange sounds. Aaron proceeded to try to unplug the toilet but the offending paper product had already managed to make its way into the lift station. By Aaron plunging with all his strength, the nasty-sick water was able to back up from the lift station/pump-thingy onto the basement carpet. (Carpet isn't even two years old.)

So tomorrow will be spent with Aaron home from work trying to find a way to salvage the area of soiled carpet.

And I will be doing a homeschool lesson on what is appropriate to flush down the toilet.
