Welcome friends, to October! The month where bloggers write for 31 days straight. I've chosen to write about raising boys. I have a 2.5 year old and a 4 year old and whoa, there's a lot to say!
The first thing that comes to mind: everything is covered in pee, just always. My poor husband wipes down the bathroom floor around the toilet, the toilet, the neighboring structures like the side of the tub, the wall and the vanity daily. And sometimes 2 times a day. Not but 30 seconds later, there is a little boy that needs to use the facilities, gets distracted and turns his head to look at something, which means he turns his whole body to look at something mid-stream. Argh! Or a sneeze, a cough, or the other brother runs in to tell the peeing brother that he has stolen his toy. Or he's half asleep and not standing close enough to the toilet. Or he's yelling at the top of his lungs that his brother better not touch his toy and he's not paying attention to the task at hand and it runs down the front of the toilet. Or he's playing with a toy while going pee and the pee shoots passed the toilet to the back where it pools.
I'm sure all the families with boys are keeping Clorox in business.
Someone should invent some sort of kid trough that spans the width the bathroom with leak catchers. We tried the kid seats that have the raised parts to keep their part pointed down but no, nope, it's just another thing that gets covered in pee.
I should have seen it coming since I was peed on the day they were born.
