Sometimes I get so engrossed always talking about our "c" and the aftermath of that "c"...I always enjoyed a post from my online family when they shared a funny moment in their lives...so here is one of mine recently. :) Because "c" is NOT all there is to US!! :)
We live in a house that is 50+/- years old and the water pressure is something to be deisred. So this a.m. I get up early to take a shower to get ready for my day.
There are several post it notes around the house that I have put up giving the kids some silent reminders of what to do, such as "put it back in the case" above the X-box, "dont' jump off the bottom step" at the bottom of the stairway
You see, with boys, they tend to use the potty and then proceed to wipe, wipe, and wipe and wipe again. THEN they attempt to flush. NOT a good combination. The better combination is flush, wipe, flush, wipe. (The day we all met around the toilet to discuss those two post it notes is another story for another day).
I'm in the shower, enjoying the brisk flow of water when I hear the bathroom door open. I peak out and see West. "Gotta go Dad" he says and proceeds to the toilet.
Then for the next TEN FLUSH's I bite my tongue and suffer through trying to get off my body a dab of shampoo. OMG, how long does it take to wipe your booty!!! I say nothing out loud because I am trying to keep order and structure and he is doing as he should.
Just when West leaves and I think I'm in the clear, in walks Jace. "Gotta pee Dad". I hold my breath, and Jace decides to flush BEFORE he uses the potty!!!! Then he flush's AFTER he uses the potty!! Jeeez, I'm dying here.
As Jace is walking out, in comes Kohle. In frustration (still lathered up) I pull the shower curtain back a bit further than intended and like some traffic cop I just point to the door from which Kohle just walked in. He turned and left.
Let's just say poor Kohle is probably still wondering what happened and trying to recover from what he saw.
