The problem with kids

I babysat the nephews and niece last night, G, A and EV. It was a pretty good time. They're little kids, 2, 4 and 5 (almost 6), so they do that whole "kids say the darnedest things." Like last night, I was giving them a bath and I asked where the other bath toy container way. G informed me that mama had taken it away because "we have a problem." He'll make a good astronaut someday, because it was said in the same voice and intonation of the famous, "Houston, we have a problem" way. But it also hearkened up an alcoholic admitting that he has a who knows. Apparently their "problem" is that they like to take toys that can be flushed down the toilet and flush them down the toilet. Apparently my sister has not sprung for one of the Kohler Class Five toilets that claim to be uncloggable. It was pretty funny. I remember my sister telling me about the incident with apples tic-tac-toe game and the toilet. I asked the kids which one did it, G fingered A, A fingered EV, EV, too young to know she's being fingered, said yeah, she did it (of course, I learned from my sister than in fact the boys did it and EV is not the one with the problem). Well, bath time might not be as fun as it could be with all the missing toys, but at least it's easier to clean up after.
