Last night I got a phone call from my wonderful MIL. You'll remember that the Helper was staying with her overnight. While trying to contain her laughter she recounted an event that took place while she was preparing dinner.
The Helper had informed Nannie that he needed to use the potty before dinner... so off he went. A few minutes later she hears,
"Damn it! Damn it! Damn it!"
She rushed to the bathroom to see what was causing his profane outbursts.
Upon arriving at the bathroom door, the Helper informed her,
"It didn't go in the hole, it sprayed everywhere, it ruined everything!"
She calmly explained that nothing was ruined... and decided it was probably not a good time to discuss his language.
Lessons to teach:
- No cursing at Nannies...ever!
- A tool in the hands of a novice can be a dangerous thing!
- What happens in the bathroom... stays in the bathroom!
