Boys and the Toilet

Sounds like a great title for a children's book. Well, it's not a laughing matter, at least not in my house.

Seriously, what is the deal with boys and going to the bathroom? And I mean boys of all ages. Is it really that hard to keep "it" pointed in the right direction to make sure random spray and drips don't get everywhere? I do believe that the hole they're aiming for is rather large, no?

It's not just the spray and drips that bother me. It's the lack of flushing. I thought flushing the toilet was the fun part for kids. The noise, watching the water twirl down and then fill back up. It's a lever to push with not much effort. When did flushing the toilet become such a huge task to accomplish?

If there's one thing I can't stand, in addition to the random drips and spray all over the place and the lack of flushing, it's going to sit down to relieve myself only to find someone else's "relief" already there. It's just gross! I don't want their "stuff" splashing up and hitting me when I'm trying to go. Flush!

And then, if they do flush, they flush too soon. What is the deal with flushing before they're finished? If there's still more coming, wait. Otherwise your "stuff" is filling up the bowl with the clean water. It's kind of like not flushing at all!

Obviously, there are bathroom issues going on in my house. Please tell me I'm not the only one!


  1. Good Morning! Following from the Totally Tuesday Blog Hop! Stop on by -

  2. No you are not the only one! I have a daycare in my home and have four boys here and goodness sakes they sometimes can make a mess! LOL

    Thanks for following La-La's Home Daycare, following you back!


  3. I know exactly what you mean. I live with all boys and I swear no matter how hard I try my bathroom just smells like a boys locker room. And getting the toilet remotely clean? Forget it. I can't wait to have my own private bathroom in a new house that I will lock and keep the key with me at all times when I'm not using it!
