Kids say the funniest things, and Owen is no exception to this.
On Saturday morning, I awoke to him running through the house yelling, “The Witch Fairy came! She really came! The Witch Fairy left me a dollar, a whole dollar! Mom! Mom! She came!”
“The Witch Fairy, I mean the Fairy Tooth.”
“You mean the Tooth Fairy?”
“Yeah. Her. Sometimes I forget her name.”
On Sunday afternoon, Owen found himself using a porta potty. I let him go into the porta potty by himself, but after he didn’t emerge several minutes later, I entered. I found him looking at the toilet seat and at both sides of the seat.
“What are you looking for, Buddy?”
“How do you flush this thing?”
I explained that a porta potty doesn’t get flushed. Now this was the most amazing thing he had ever heard of! Unfortunately, it also heightened his curiosity. Before I knew it, he stuck his head into the hole to get a closer look.
“But where does the water go?”
Oh my! There are somethings I would rather remain a mystery.
