Crazy kid. We have a child-proofing doohickey on the bathroom doorknob, but the little hooligan figured out that if he pushes the door hard enough, it pops open. So in he went, and before SmithWife and I figured out he was in there, he’d scooped up a handful of water and drank it. :smack:
Add install new bathroom door to my “honey do” list. And if anyone has a sure-fire method of disinfecting a two-year-old, I’d be glad to hear it.
Eh, he probably won’t come to loads of harm from a two-year-old-sized handful of water. The water in the toilet is “clean” - it’s the container that’s filthy. Don’t be surprised if he has a couple of really disgusting diapers, but unless he exhibits any real physical distress, I’d let him be.
For the record, two-year-olds in general are easier than three-year-olds. You might consider having him kenneled until he’s, like, six.
We have an 11 month old who is fascinated by the toilet…loves to play in the water. Blech. Unfortunately, we also have a kid who’s potty training, so we can’t really block the pathways to the bathroom. We just leave the lid down and cross our fingers (and keep our eyes open). I don’t know what we’re going to do when he figures out how to open the lid himself.
Not my kid, but he is my Godson and I promise I will tell this story to his prom date…
Lil S. walks in on dad taking a whiz in the bathroom. Looks at dad and his equipment and comes up with his assessment of the situation… “Tail on you! Tail on you!”
When dad explains that what he saw was in fact not a tail but a “wiener”, S starts calling all tails he sees’ wieners. The cow, the Saint Bernard, even the guy in the dog suit at Petsmart now has a “wiener!”.
I’m familiar with the fireman reference. I’m glad I have a daughter so we could just use the clinical terminology when I warned her to stay far away from those things till she was married *at least * 3 years…
