"Were having fun, Momma"

This afternoon the kids wanted to watch the Elmo movie. So Myles put it on and we all piled on the couch to watch. I had just a few min. before getting lunch together. I thought I would sit on the couch too and watch for a few minuets. I did, but it turned out to be longer than that. You see when I sit down I fall asleep. I did so for about 15 min. till I heard the sound of the master bathroom toilet flushing above my head. I woke up shocked at the quiet house. Never a good sign. Then as I went up the stairs I still heard nothing. Again, not a good sign. I walked all the way down the hall and noticed a few drops of water on the floor. I thought to myself, has Myles peed his pants?, no it was worse than that. I open the door to my bedroom only to find the bathroom door closed too. I can hear all of them screaming and laughing and having a great ol' time. As I get closer to the door, my feet are getting wet, yep, soaking wet! I open the door in time to see Myles dumping a "pot" of water over the head of Lydia. "What are you doing" I yell. He said "we are having fun momma!" There must be a 1/2 inch of water on the entire bathroom floor and all the towels and rugs are now soaked. I look at the kids who are also soaked and then I notice that the sink water isn't running. Yep, you guessed it. They were getting the water from the TOILET! EWWWW...After stripping them all down and putting them each in their beds I notice that the water wasn't only contained to the bathroom, it's all over my bedroom. The floor is wet everywhere and there is pools of water on each of the nightstands. The entire bed, pillows and all, are soaked with toilet water and the pictures above the bed are dripping with water. I can't believe it. I didn't even know where to start. So I make Myles come and help me clean this mess up. He spends the next 10 min. hauling wet laundry to the garage. I'm soaking up all the extra water with towels and trying not to beat him in the process. I then tell Myles that if he has gotten water all the way to my bed it my be ruined. I told him how much it cost and that he would owe me the money. I asked him if he had 2,000$ and he said, "yea". I was so mad at this point that I sent him back to his room.

I then put each of the kids in the tub one by one to wash off all the toilet water and then dress them again. In the middle of one of the girls bath I turn around and notice that Myles has left me a pile of all his coins as payment for the bed. I start to feel really bad, but then I remember how much of a mess I still needed to clean and forget about being soft.

I get everyone washed, fed and into bed for naps and then I get to tackle 6 loads of laundry, and major disinfecting of my toilet water bathroom. It was a good 15 min. nap, but I don't think it was worth it. Kids do the darnedest things! Wishing I had a picture of the events.

Oh my goodness Brooke.
I'm so sorry.
The only good thing was they had fun, but I"m sure that's no consolation in the slightest.
The thing is you deserve a nap, who knew this would happen right?
Cute about the money.

Never nap unless they are locked up tight! LOL. Sorry, but that's pretty funny. Did your bed get wet?
