What's up with babies and toilets??

By PaisleyJade - Thursday, July 10, 2008

I had a very horrific moment today and it brought back another horrific moment many years ago... today my darling baby girl was drinking out of the toilet with her little playset cups (thankfully it was flushed... but really, is that any consolation).

She has a love for water, and has been recently caught playing in the cat's bowl of water... but I never thought it would come to this. While daddy was gagging, we went into emergency mode and did everything we could apart from making her drink disinfectant.

Years ago our oldest was caught giving his pet seal a swim in the toilet... and I thought that was extreme. None of our other children have been at all interested in the toilet water until now!

So I am still horrified... the toilet door is now always to be closed... and nobody ever dare forget to flush... and I want to encourage all you people out there to clean your toilets regularly (thankfully I just had!).

p.s. the picture above is not my child... I would not have waited around long enough to grab the camera!
