Suppose the Toothbrush is a Potty Brush

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on December 17, 2008

Suppose you decide you deserve a little afternoon rest, put on a movie for the chillins to zone out to, then lay down on the couch.

Suppose your newly potty-trained almost-3yo says, “Mama – I need to go potty.”

You say, “Then GO!”

Suppose when you’re lying on the couch for a little afternoon rest, you zone out into an almost sleep thinking you’re grateful the girls are being quiet and content.

Suppose after a few too many minutes, you realize your newly potty-trained almost-3yo hasn’t returned from the potty.

That’s when you realize your newly potty-trained almost-3yo has a penchant for doing odd things at odd times and may be exploring her new bathroom domain.

At that time, you send your 4 1/2-yo to check on your newly potty-trained almost-3yo because you can’t seem to get your fat ass off of the couch to check on your newly potty-trained almost-3yo.

Suppose that shortly after you send your 4 1/2-yo to check on your newly potty-trained almost-3yo, they return to show you the electric toothbrush that has been on bathroom counter completely out of reach unless one of the said chillins has climbed onto the sink counter.

And suppose that electric toothbrush had been, in the past, possibly used to ‘clean’ the potty* by the 4 1/2-yo and newly potty-trained almost-3yo.

And now suppose the 4 1/2-yo and the newly potty-trained almost-3yo claim they were brushing their teeth.

What to do.

What. To. Do.

*I, too, wonder why that electric toothbrush has remained on bathroom counter completely out of reach unless one of the said chillins has climbed onto the sink counter.

A mark of true laziness.

Awesome toilet talk. My four year old isn’t so great at flushing. Which is fine, except her poo rivals that of a grown man. My youngest new walker likes to walk into the bathroom and explore. I found her playing in the toilet with the big one.

Ew! I’m not even sure what else I can say. Take it you’ll never be using that toothbrush again!

Sounds like you need to go lie back down on the couch. Rest securely in the fact that they are both domestically advanced (cleaning the bathroom) and hygienically astute (brushing their teeth).

I have thrown away more toothbrushes …. I’m just sayin’. Being the father of three sons, I have more poo stories than you can shake a stick at – and they continue to this day. And the two oldest boys are 26 and 24 – and no, they are NOT grown men, they are just OLD BOYS. And trust me, you don’t want to sit in our vicinity in a restaurant – at least, not close enough to overhear.

What to do? Oh that’s easy. Teach them to use that toothbrush (or dish cloths) to wash dishes…and then floors.

Maybe you should congratulate them for having good hygiene?

(and hey, at LEAST you are cleaning sometime)

What can you do? You make sure that this won’t happen again. There isn’t anything to do. Everything makes sense and the conclusion is pretty simple: babies can climb skin counters and parents can’t watch a baby 24/7 as sad as that might sound. When you have two kids, you can’t expect to be with one eye on each one until their 5 years old.

Teehee… you now have a clean toilet, no? Did you thank her? 😉
