A Bedtime Mini-Drama

Scene: The Bathroom

Key Players: Buffalo Herd

The Victim: Pink & bristly

Time: Bedtime


Mama reaches up to the top shelf to distribute toothbrushes and toothpaste to the little buffaloes.

Things in the basket have tangled themselves up.

When buffalo toothbrushes come out, the pink butterfly toothbrush takes a plunge.... right into the toilet below.

Of course the last buffalo in didn't close the lid (OR put the seat down, for that matter.)

Pregnant Mama Butterfly doesn't know whether to laugh or cry. What begins as a wail turns into a laugh as she fills Daddy Buffalo in on the situation.

The whole fam peers in at the sad pink little soldier, turning slow circles in the white porcelain bowl.

Biggest Buffalo kid sums it up best:

"At least it floats!"

That is too funny! I have two boys and just had a baby girl - being pregnant with two buffaloes has to be exhausting sometimes! :) I look forward to reading more of your story! :)
