Boys and Bathrooms

I have two young boys that use the toilet. Many of you may understand what this means.

For those of you who don't know:

It means that I now have to wipe down the bathroom several times a day.

It means that I have to look to the left and right of the toilet to see if someone "missed".

It means that I am about ready to designate a boys bathroom and a girls bathroom.

It means that I am called in to see how many bubbles were made.

It means that I no longer keep a bathroom rug at the base of the toilet just in case.

It means that I have to stand at the door and repeatedly say, "Watch what you are doing."

And lastly, with my newly trained two year old boy, it means that I am called in to "shake it off" because he is a germ-a-phobe and doesn't want to risk getting pee on himself.

Lord help me.

3 things to add:

Erin said... have just enlightened me! I had no idea how much work boys who were potty trained are! And it must take a steel stomach to clean up after the miss fires!

Ha, I'm like mom on this one. I don't think that Levi has a clue that some boys stand up. I think I'll keep it that way for as long as possible.

Ok I TOTALY understand all key points you have made!!! HAHAHA. But as for you last one.... Rob tought Robbie to grab a pice of toilet paper ball it up and wipe himself off. It saved mommy the hassle of having to wipe the toilet set down ALL the time.
