This post isn’t going to be poetic, heck it isn’t even going to be well written. It’s a cry for help, what do you expect? I have trouble, trouble with my toilet. Well, not my toilet, the toilet in the boy’s bathroom. I try not to go in there. I assign cleaning it as a chore and then just pray that they actually cleaned it. Yes, this is slightly delusional behavior. Yesterday morning I went in there though and then spent the next hour cleaning and scrubbing a cesspool of pee.
Why? Why is it so hard to pee into a big oval hole? Also, if it is so hard to do this, why in the world do boys not just sit down to go like girls do? I could clean that bathroom every single day of the week and the next day, you know what I would find behind the toilet? A pool of pee. Yep, everyday, that darn puddle would be back. Why? I don’t know. If it’s there, think of where else it is. Walking into a bathroom shared by four boys is like walking into one of those scenes in a horror movie. You know, the ones where you know you shouldn’t look, but you do anyway? ( cue music from the Pyscho movie scene.)
Let’s just think of the logistics of this for a moment. To form a puddle of pee behind the toilet on the floor, they literally have to urinate around the toilet, missing it completely to land in a puddle on the floor behind it. How? Why? What can I do to make it stop? Of course, if I ask them, no one is doing it. That stinking sock monster must be stopping by on his way back from collecting all our socks to pee a puddle behind the toilet, because they swear it isn’t them. It isn’t just little boys ladies. Have you wondered why men’s public restrooms smell so bad? Because they are doing it too!
So, moms of multiple boys, how do you make the pee puddles stop?
