2000 Flushes & the Toilet

when masyn was little i bought the 2000 flushes tablets to make the water blue {and help clean the toilee} she LOVED it. it was so "pretty". i thought i would bring a similar excitement to the boy. i was wrong...
{with arms in the air, head bobbing and a sound of urgency in his almost yelling voice, nolan runs into the kitchen}
"MOM! WE HAVE A PROBUM!
me: "what's the problem?"
"ME HAVE TO GO POOP, AND THERE'S SOMETHIN IN THE TOILET!"
me {thinking there's a bug in the there}: "what's in the toilet?"
"IT'S A PROBUM, ME HAVE TO GO POOP!"
me {again}: what's in the toilet?"
"COME, IT'S A PROBUM, IT'S BLUE!"
me {realizing now what the problem is and now laughing}: "it's ok, i made the water blue don't you like it?"
NO!!! AND ME HAVE TO Goooo POOP" {as he runs to the other bathroom}
it took several days to finally convice him that it was ok to use that toilet. we've got about 1,932 flushes to go! crazy boy!!!

So funny! Ryan (same age as Nolan) wouldn't go to the bathroom in the 1 toilet that is blue for a long time. I only put it in 1 after I realized he wouldn't go in it. And even now he avoids that toilet at all costs. Funny little boys! Glad I'm not alone.
