Oh Emily's toothbrush?

Oh, Emily's toothbrush?

Is Emily's toothbrush?

After unpacking the last "bathroom" box yesterday I found the variety pack of toothbrushes I had purchased for Emily. Of course, she was excited to have new ones and played with them all day--even her stuffed Curious George got his "teeth" brushed. Just before supper she started fussing about the "red" one being in the sink or something. At bathtime I looked every where and finally found it--down the drain. The long drain cap thing (since I don't know the correct terminology) had been pulled out and was in the medicine cabinet--probably because it doesn't work. That leaves a significant hole that drops about a foot into old pipes before snaking up and into the wall. That was the end of the short lifespan of the "red" toothbrush. I had no idea how we were going to get it out since the top of the toothbrush was probably 5-6 inches down in the hole. However, while cleaning the bathroom this morning it floated up when I was draining the cleaning water along with a lot of other gross stuff. :op I had to hide it in the bottom of the wastebasket so Emily doesn't find it and get any ideas. The trash goes out tonight.

Good thinking on hiding the toothbrush. We threw out one of Wendell's and he quickly found it, luckily we retrieved it before he actually got it in his mouth. Glad it floated up for you, "that was easy" (commont quote at our house, the easy button from "staples, that was easy".
