Today, Ezra was going to the bathroom. He'd been in there a while, but as my kids are slow pottiers, nothing seemed amiss...until I started to hear a odd scraping noise coming from the bathroom. It took me a moment, but it wasn't long before I realized it was the unmistakable sound of the top of the toilet tank being lifted off and then replaced.
Alarmed, I rushed in. When asked why he was messing with the toilet, Ezra replied,
"I just wanted to see what it looked like when I flushed."
When Spencer asked him what he saw, Ezra was able to describe in fairly good detail the inner workings of a toilet tank,
"You push the button and the anchor pulls up the black thing and that lets out all the water. Then the black thing closes and it fills up with water."
Don't even get me started on how he disassembled a small drainage system in the basement last week.
Heaven help me, I'm raising one of them...
ps-If you're raising one of them, married to one of them, related to one of them, or just friends to one of them...here's a link to my favorite engineer-humor website. I know I've mentioned An Engineering Mind before, but this is for all y'all who missed it the first time.
