The Butt-Pinching Toilet Seat

As soon as I came home from work today, the boys practically tackled me in the doorway and began bombarding me with snipits of their day:

'...swimming pool and then we...'
' bell ... my bike...'
'...David ... an orange one...'
'...then we ... on our bikes...'

In the end, I pieced together that they had spent the day with Grams & Opa, on bikes and in the pool. On top of all that, they each had gotten new bells for their bikes. Needless to say, the boys had a ball. So much so that Grams & Opa earned the coveted Ladder Talk's 'Best thing that happened today' award.

Before going to bed, David wanted to use the toilet. Lately, he has been going on his own and tonight was another 'successful' run. 'Yeah, buddy! Great job!' Peter wanted to use the toilet, too, so David stepped aside and watched as Peter climbed up. Somehow, Peter managed to pinch himself between the toilet and the seat lid and promptly starting screaming bloody murder for at least ten minutes. David, who was witness to it all, kept looking from Peter to the toilet, muttering 'Peter, toilet, ow-a.' Only tomorrow will tell, but I am pretty sure that Peter's butt pinching has set back David's potty training by a good month or so.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When we go to the circus Grams and Opa and ride our bike. We have got a - it's a new red klingel [pause to look at incredible rainbow outside]
David: Bicycle. Red. Bell orange. Pooh bear.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I was on the toilet and tried to pick up and it pinched.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Dalia's.
