We have two little guys, and I can tell you from experience… no amount of “training” helps. Yes, I know using the word ‘training’ might make it sound like we think they’re puppies, but that’s exactly what it is – ‘training’. Day after day we keep hoping they’ll stay focused on the task at hand and just aim straight, but still, no progress… How long will we have to wait!? I guess until they’re teenagers, no wait… GROWN MEN! Oh Lord Help ME!
I bet they’re going to be absolutely mortified one day; when they realize I shared this story, but this is just too real (and awkwardly funny) not to share… Does that make me a terrible mother? 🙂 … I just know that there are MANY moms out there who can relate to this. There are times when I walk into the bathroom and I feel like I should start washing the ceiling!
You see, there is this huge mirror in the kids’ bathroom, and just the other day I walked in to find my one superhero (he was literally wearing a Spiderman costume) standing by the toilet having a wee, staring at himself in the mirror, pulling every face in the book, whilst everything but the toilet bowl was being watered… Just picture yourself walking into gym, you know those guys that stand in front of the mirrors pumping iron and staring at themselves… This is my one son, except he’s not lifting weights! ARE ALL BOYS LIKE THIS!!!
Every day mommy diligently wipes down the toilet so that it’ll be good and fresh for the day! I really don’t want one of my kids to catch some deadly virus just because I was too grossed out to clean it! But really, can’t they just learn to aim!?
Note to self… Maybe if I wear my superhero costume too I might live through this!
