The First Casualty

Behold the book.

The poor book that Bubbers happened to be reading one morning while I was taking a shower.

The same poor book that Bubbers was still clutching in his adorably chubby little grasp when he suddenly stood up and swung his cute Wooga belly around the corner of the bathroom out of my sight and headed towards the toilet…..

The same toilet that he discovered was not latched properly like I thought it was.

Then stealthily and swiftly, without an ounce of fanfare or even a splash…..

He drowned the poor book.

And it died.

A sad page-stiffening edge-opening death.

So now, my dear readers, I implore you for help.

And ask you the question that plagues my mind…..



Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my toilet.

I don’t think you can get e-coli out of paper. Toss it or keep it but PLEASE don’t donate it to Goodwill. I shop there all the time & will never be able to look at the book section the same way again. (I mean clothes you can wash, most furniture you can disinfect but paper??)

Lol! Charlotte, most furniture you can’t throw in the toilet either!
I think unless it is a completely irreplacible collector’s item (unlikely, since you let bubber’s play with it) you should just toss it. Unfortunately, ruined toys and books is just part of raising a child.

Depends. Was it clean water in the toilet? When was the last time it was cleaned? If you answer no to the 1st question, I would toss it….and probably buy dupes if your favorite books as it won’t be the last time one gets wet. He is so cute… he was just trying to give it a bath.
