Flooding Wisdom

And today, while sweeping the massive flood of water from a busted pipe into our basement floor drain.....

I overheard Ru, holding Pom (to keep him out of the lake), and explaining to him comfortingly:
   "But don't you worry about the water, Baby....the good thing is, most things can be fixed."

How right he is. Its a good thing. And a true thing. Not all things can be fixed, but truly, most things. Maybe not by us, maybe not quickly but eventually, we'll get a plumber here and this will be hilarious. In the meantime, I have a pint-sized sage to keep me company.



  1. Dear Ru! How true! I remember painfully well that when Jonathan was just Ru's age, we woke up to find our house was flooded with snow melt. It was Jon's 7th birthday, and we had to spend most of the day repairing the damage instead of having the fun we'd planned. He still went to bed with shining eyes and told me he'd had a wonderful birthday. I was overwhelmed by his sweetness and good cheer. Children ARE a blessing!

  2. That is a very good explanation coming from Ru! It’s amazing to hear that kind of wisdom coming from a young one, to think that he said that to calm Pom while keeping him out of the lake. Well, that makes him a really great big brother. Anyway, I hope you managed to fix the problem regarding your pipes. Thanks for sharing that, Carlie! Have a great day!
