Nothing like a potty post

I have asked my boys and they each deny it adamantly. They look at me with wide innocent eyes and vigorously shake their heads. Then they offer 'helpful' accusations and finger pointings at their siblings. Who then also deny it and shake their heads and finger point back. Then we naturally get into fistfights and the inquisition is over due to more pressing medical concerns.

What is the question?
Who the blankety-blank is missing the huge porcelain bowl when doing their bizness?? Every time I clean the toilets I have to save a Clorox wipe for the inevitable spot on the floor behind the toilet. Granted, I do not quite understand the difficulty of aim since I don't have the proper parts. But really. Seriously. How can you miss?

I do know that once I walked by the bathroom to see Mitch (yes, I saw him since it seems to take great effort to actually close the bathroom door. Like that extra push with the arm would take away a second of play time and we can't have that!) turn his body when he heard someone coming. And the WHOLE body turned, if you know what I mean. So I can seen how it can happen on occasion. But come on! Do I have to play potty monitor and crawl around the toilet after each use to find the culprit?

I must admit I like the idea that it isn't my kids. Maybe it's their friends. Or a stranger that sneaks into my house to use the toilet when I'm not looking. Yeah, that's it. There is a crazy dude running around the neighborhood framing my kids. Because obviously they have great aim. Just ask 'em.

I am not looking forward to this part of having boys.

But I am sure it wasn't any of your boys. The nieghbors are always good to blame. In fact, I think I saw the Hamilton's sneaking into your house.

Are you sure it isn't Sydney?

yeah, let's go ahead and blame it on some random stranger sneaking in...

because there's nothing creepy about THAT!

I'm glad Garrett can't be blamed : ) Ginger has these same feelings over potties...it's pretty funny. I guess until one of them has the chore of cleaning the bathroom you might have this problem!??! Sara offered to clean toilets today. I tried to channel her efforts in other directions since the last time she cleaned the bathrooms I had about 1 inch of cleanser on the counter and the mirror was WAY smudgier than when it started. I have bathroom whoas too!

Are you sure it wasn't the hubster of the house?

Maybe you should just dig a hole for outside in the fun summer months when they are too busy playing.

Honestly, I think they enjoy missing. Sad, but true.

I saw that crazy dude too. I think you ought to duct tape your windows and doors closed to be sure he doesn't come in again. Have you tried having them shoot for the cheerio? I bet their aim would be near perfection! LOL

My grandma used an outhouse for the boys and the toilets for the girls. Do you think the city of Payson would allow that? It worked for Dwight...

It has to be their friends. There is no way that your kids would perform the aforementioned atrocities! Or maybe it was Leon? I did notice he was quick to comment and blame it on the baby!
