The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

I had all three of my grandchildren one afternoon last week when I discovered them hovering around the toilet bowl in the bathroom. My first thought was that they had put something in it that didn’t belong there. I was right! I rushed in and asked, “What are you doing?” Avari quickly pointed to the toilet and said, “Ladybug. Swimming.” I peered into the bowl. Sure enough, there was a ladybug “swimming” around in it. Apparently, Avari had found one somewhere in the house and decided to see if it could swim. Only a 2-year old could think of something like that. Of course, Jaylee, 4, and Ty, 3, were also enjoying the adventure. At least it wasn’t a banana, which is what one of my nephews put in the school toilet once – just to see if it would flush. I won’t say which nephew – wouldn’t want to embarrass him now.
