The Toothbrush Incident

Our boys. They fight. And fight. And Fight.

If they are in the same room, they fight.

If they are in different rooms, they fight.

We were visiting John's relatives on the weekend. We sent the boys to brush their teeth for bed. At the same time.


Apparently, Stinky took this opportunity to drop off a load, Stinkying up the bathroom for Moth while he was brushing his teeth.

This got Moth all a-flutter.

Words were spoken. Insults exchanged. Fisticuffs couldn't be managed, as Stinky was taking a dump. But Moth hurled a weapon at Stinky - Moth's toothbrush.

It landed in the polluted toilet.

I made him remove it with his hand. I told him, after I got him to do it (man, can that boy scream!) that it would all wash off his hands. We washed his hands three times, while I told him of when I worked in the bookstore and had to scrub feces off the wall - some crazy dude had written in his own poop.

Somehow, my misery made Tim feel all better.

Do they ever stop fighting?

I don't think there is anything in this world that would let me use a toothbrush that had fallen into a toilet. No ma'am. No way. It would take a night time trip to the local Walgreens to get a new toothbrush or I would go insane. Sorry, but I'm with the Moth on this one.

Oh, I didn't make him use it! I just made him get it out of the toilet, then we threw it away and washed our hands.

Whew. I was worried there for a while. Goodness knows how far you teacher types will go to teach a lesson ;-)
