Tip of the day

Boiling water poured down a toliet when repeated vigorous plunging has failed will melt the crayons that were shoved into said toilet by 3 year old, thus unstopping it and preventing further overflow.
Don't ask me how I know.

Happy Tuesday and
Much Love,

Oh my! I'll have to remember that helpful little tip just in case I'm a mommy someday ;).

I bet Martha will be using that tip in her next issue.

Ah, I love the "words of wisdom" from Moms! But no pictures??!! LOL I will have to remember that for when I am a Nana:)

How do you know?...hehehe we can only guess.

BTW: I read on Lindseys blog about melting broken crayons in the microwave and then moulding them into new crayons, I thought that was a great idea.

Hi. I came across your blog through a link on Laurel Wreath's site. I have been skimming your archives for awhile now. I was touched by your little boy lost post and I love your idea of the Bible verse chart for your three year old. I also have a three year old..and would like to get her started with memorizing verses. I also bookmarked your best tips ever post...because those tips were great!!!! Anyway, I am glad I came upon your site.

I'll keep that in mind for future grandkids. Sigh. I miss little ones. First time, here enjoyed your posts.

Whew...I think with my youngest at four, we got through this stage without this lovely crayon event.
Great tip of the day, though, Jennifer! :)

Too Cute! (although I am sure it wasn't at the time!)

Renee said...

Oh dear. I don't even want to have to have a reason to use that method. Boys will be boys, right?
