An Aspiring Plumber

I have posted something about all the kids except Stein, so I figured I would give him his time in the sun. (Lucky kid!)

Stein is now a very dignified eleven-year-old who has long since shelved his extra-curricular plumbing activities. But he has the sense of humor to let me post this story on my blog.

One Saturday when Stein was two, I was nursing baby Ryan and heard some splashing noises. I asked Rick to go check on Stein. A few seconds later Rick exclaimed: "Oh, no!"

"What happened?" I feared the worst.

Rick came back and asked me for my digital camera. (That was one of the really early models, so please forgive the quality.) "I think it would be better for you to see this," he explained.

When Rick returned and showed me the picture, I quickly finished nursing and went to see Stein who was having the time of his life. "That's gross!" I said, trying very hard not to laugh.

"Gross!" he agreed with a huge grin on his face.
