On plunging


Upon discovering the toilet was clogged, my daughter, without any direction walked outside to get our plunger.

Upon attempting plunging with a wrist brace, a 16 pound baby in the front pack and 3 kids huddled around, I discovered that it is messy (this was my first plunging experience) and hard work.

Two hours later when my newly acquired plunging skills were needed again, I went at it sans brace, baby in pack and 3 kids watching…and discovered it works much better that way. What a surprise.

Should I teach my kids to plunge? What is the magical coming of age when it comes to plunging?



you know there are several sween family members who are especially gifted at plunging toilets….i’ll leave it at that 😉
