    You are going to have to fight me for the last of the Bounty, sister…

    August 20, 2006

    On Friday I went over to my sister’s house after my doctor’s appointment to a) retrieve my son and b) see my mother while she was in town for Madeleine’s 8th birthday party last night.  Jen left to run some errands and Mom and I jumped up to clean up while she was gone.  A virtually futile effort considering there were like 5 kids in the house. 

    I went into the bathroom to survey the situation.  I find the bathroom is the easiest room in the house to clean and feel that instant gratification of a job well done. 

    Until I opened the door and got smacked in my supersensory senses by the smell of an elementary school boy’s bathroom.  We were all girls in our house growing up.  We gave my father his own bathroom and never knew what happened in there.

    OH MY GOD!!!!

    I ran back into the kitchen, holding my breath and wishing for Tums (even the banana ones). 

    K:  Carter is only 5 years old.  How can he make the bathroom smell so bad?  I have to give my son away.  Do you think they just do this (sticking out my pelvis and swaying side to side like I imagined boys peeing).  He is either going to have to pee outside or I don’t know what the other option is.  And I don’t even want to tell you what is on the toilet seat. 

    My mother then told a story about how my aunt would just NOT go to the bathroom because she couldn’t stand the smell.  That and she had to clean the bathroom every single day from top to bottom.   She had two boys.

    I grabbed the paper towels. 

    Mom:  HEY, I need them too.
    K:  Oh, no………you don’t.  Because unless you have a power washer, I’m using every single one of these bad boys.
    Mom:  Here’s the 409. 

    I went back in there a couple of hours after I cleaned it–right after Carter had made a trip in there.  It doesn’t take them long to undo all your good work, huh?

      All my friends have girls…so when I read this I almost cried…maybe being 12 weeks prego with my 3rd has something to do with it…or just the sheer fact that this is sad but true.

      I had never experienced the smell of a urinal until my son turn 2. For some reason at eht time, my daughter and I used a different bathroom (natural forces telling is it was better)and at the same time my husband quit his toilet duty. So I ventured into “their” bathroom and was thrown back by the smell. Once approaching my husband about it, he confessed that he does not help our two year old hold his pee-pee down (becuase it is weird) so that means that he allows him to essentially decorate our master bath in urine! Let’s just say that after HIS battle with 409 and roll of Bounty little B’s pee-pee gets held down!

      The scent of my daughter sounds just as bad. The only difference is I get the honor if changing her diaper….

      Boys are nasty. This is why I make mine clean their OWN bathroom. My 11 year old is a great toilet scrubber.
