Notice of potluck delay

Posted by Holly Homer |

Today's potluck has been suspended due to unforeseen potluck delaying circumstances. Please note that this is not a complete potluck ban and non-Nirvana potlucks have not been impacted. This is an isolated potluck incident and should not affect potluck stock prices worldwide.

Blog-Stedman had the boys almost all weekend so that I could go do something fun. Very fun. I received a call on Saturday late afternoon that went a little like this:

Ummmmm...

Hello? Is everything OK?

Oh yes, I just have a question.

Sure, what is up?

Rhett (2) just went to the bathroom by himself and he made me leave the bathroom and shut the door.

Ya, he does that to me too.

When I returned to the bathroom he had pooped and peed.

Good.

And he was sitting on the toilet all bent over with his head between his legs.

OK...

And then he said this, "I dropped my B (binky) down theeeeerrreeee."

*trying not to laugh hysterically* So, did you flush the binky?

No, I fished it out and put it in a plastic bag.

OK.

But...I am not sure what to do with it now.

You could wash it or put it in the dishwasher...

Yuck. I don't think I want to know what you are going to do with it.

Don't worry I will take care of it when I get home.



For additional adventures in fatherhood, please go visit PapaTV. His sweet little girl was born last week and she is already emailing him.


Please resume your Monday as if potluck had actually happened...

So I came here hungry but the whole "binky in the toilet" story sort of made my appetite go away so I guess it's good there's no potluck today...

Valarie said...

I think that binky has seen its better days. I think there should be a binky funeral for it.

I know this sounds mean, but moms who've been the Main Parent for the majority of the time will understand: Aren't ya just a little glad it happened while Dad was on duty? ;)

so, see ... this is the quintessential third (or fourth)-child story. when my oldest was born, i boiled every nipple and every binky if it had the audacity to touch a table or a floor. with no. 2 son, i washed it off with hot water and soap at the sink. with no. 3, i rinsed it (maybe). when no. 4 was born, i would pick a dropped binky off the floor and pop it back in her mouth.

but i think even *i* would draw the line at the toilet bath.

Marinka said...

That would have been the end of the binky, the toilet and maybe the kid. Well, definitely the binky.

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

That's so funny - my hubs was home for the weekend with the boys himself, too!

Where did you spend your mah-velous weekend?

Weaselmomma said...

Dad's, they crack me up.

Beck said...

Oh SURE, you say it's not going to affect global potluck prices and then the next thing you know? Widespread potluck shortage.
He put the soother in a baggie. Well, of course he did.

Ron Davison said...

At a potluck you never know what you're going to get. I had hoped for something other than a binky that had yet to be sterilized. I guess I'll just suck my thumb until lunch time, hoping that the hunger pains don't distract me too much. And really? There is not even toast or cold cereal I could munch on? This whole pot luck is shut down?

jill jill bo bill said...

You hava a poopy binky in your friut bowl. Now that's FUNNY! And tee-totally digusting. I LOVE it!

Eternal Sunshine said...

Oh my, I sure hope you had a backup binky. I'm pretty sure that one would have been a goner.

Will anxiously await the return of the potluck!!

Burgh Baby said...

Of course he had no idea what to do with it and left it for you. Of course.

Rachel said...

Bwaaahahahahahahahahahaaaa

Seriously? That is freaking fantastic.

It's no longer a Binky, it's now the BM Binky. That's just eektastic.

No potluck? I'm just devastated. Where's my coccyx update, the fruitbowl? Is it barren, sitting empty and lonely?
No comment of the week, no peep, no...

My monday is now dark and dreary without my potluck, my stomach and my heart are empty and lonely now.

I'm going fetal now.

Eudea-Mamia said...

What? No potluck!? I totally should have stopped at Chick-Fil-A this morning.

Great, yet another thing to blame on W.

And the binky - please tell me it wasn't the bling one. I might have to shed a tear. We LOVE the bling one!

Don't cha just love when the Dad calls for suggestions. I think my hubby would have a thing or two to say if I called him out of some conference call to figure out what to do with a potty binky. Jeesh. Pretend like you're at work, and Figure It OUT!!

Rachael said...

You're throwing the binky away, right? Or, are you going to do a secret swap?

Domestic Accident said...

Isn't BlogStedman a doctor? Does he not know about various sanitizing methods? Interesting...

I miss PotLuck.

ShallowGal said...

Except I'm still hungry.

PS: Eli, who asks for the paci with the hair on it, would be all over the potty paci.

xoxo, SG

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

As if potluck had happened......ok.

Wow thanks for naming me Peep of The Week - you shouldn't have! And I totally guessed what was in Holly's fruit bowl. I mean, how ripe can papaya get, right? And I can't believe how your coccyx is doing! Mine is the exact same way.

And as usual, thanks for the potluck!

Roger said...

Okay, so Blog-Stedman put his hand in the toilet and grabbed the little 'Bink-meister' but has a problem with washing it? Does that make any sense at all? Not to this Dad, let me tell you.

I would have just flushed it myself, then again I do have a plumber that lives next door if there is any trouble. :)

Hope your weekend wasn't marred, bby that unfortunate event.

Rebeckah said...

I am not sure what potluck is because I just started reading this blog, but I am laughing my head off because blog Stedman doesn't want to wash the binky in the dishwasher : ). So funny. And typically manly. What is wrong with them anyway? I love mine to pieces, but boy, is he wierd : )!

mommeeof9 said...

He should have just flushed it. You have boys. It wouldn't have been the first thing that was flushed that shouldn't have been. :)

Jennifer said...

that was good. :)

we had to have our septic sucked... (LOL) anyway... when we took the lid off I saw a binky in it... and JOKINGLY asked my husband if he would get it for me so I could wash it for the girls since we were always loosing them (which was true, we always lost them!) he just shook his head and walked away. but to my surprise he was going to look for something to retrieve the binky. What a good daddy he is!!


JUST KIDDING!! he only shook his head and walked away. :)

hope you had a great weekend.

xoxoxox

Jenni Jiggety said...

I'm sorry but the binky has GOTS to go, Holly.

R.I.P. Binky

Danielle said...

Oh my gosh, I am STARVING!!! If a strong wind comes, I may blow away! Hurry...bring on the food! Maybe I'll just nibble on the veggie tray I brought with me...

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

And I was going to bring banana bread!

And, ummmm, you could throw the binky away and buy a new one.

Manic Mommy said...

Was it solid gold? Even at that, I think we would have just gone with the burial at sea.

And congrats to Nanny Goat. The write-in campaign was brilliant!

JCK said...

So wonderful that you got away!!

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

Gross. Gross. Gross. Gross. And hilarious that it happened to HIM!!

What did you do that was fun? Very fun?

KEEP BELIEVING
