I just caught my daughter with the toilet bowl brush in her mouth.

I wish I could think of a way to sugar-coat this situation, or slightly lie about it. But the fact is I caught my daughter with the toilet bowl brush in her mouth.

I guess her love of the bathroom, brought upon from our pretty lame attempt at potty training combined with her new-found love of brushing her teeth, got the best of her. The minute my back was turned, and had left the bathroom door open for just a moment, she slipped in and combined her two favorite things.

Brushing her teeth and sitting on the potty.

I’m not sure how many times washing her mouth out with fresh water and wiping her face with a soapy wash cloth will get the image out of my mind. And, of course, I’m restraining myself from calling the pediatrician because I know he’ll just laugh at me.

Really, he will.

So, I’ll just have to chalk it up to another interesting baby experience that we’ve survived.

I caught my baby with the toilet bowl brush in her mouth. It’s happened at your house, right?!

(I’m a bit traumatized.)
