We Aim to Please. You Aim Too, Please

Boys. Aren't they wonderful? I really do think they are. But there are some things you have to remember during your daily life with them.

Like, don't just sit down on the toilet seat in a carefree, light-hearted way. The way you always have done...before having sons. And...keep in mind that being barefoot in the house takes on a whole new risk factor. Particularly in the bathroom.

I get it. I mean, aiming is an issue that we females have never really had to deal with. But, how long does it take to learn how to aim? Apparently, from my firsthand experience as a mother to two sons, it can take years!

So, let's run through the complicated procedure just one more time:

1. raise the toilet seat
2. grab ahold of your equipment and aim for the center of the water
3. do whatever it takes not to drip
4. put the toilet seat back down

If any one of these steps is skipped, performed out of order, or altered in any way, disaster will ensue. Along comes Mamma who immediately either sits on or walks through your puddles. And then Mamma is not happy.

And let me just say . . . it's better for everyone involved if Mamma is happy.

Ha, ha,I don't think they ever learn! Another reason I am glad I had daughters :)

LOL you're right, but these are lofty targets. I'd just like them to clean up after themselves when they miss!

Oh my dear, it takes forever! I have 5 sons and I can tell you I am always "cleaning" the bathroom. I swear it's like there's a hole in the wrong spot or something.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. But Oh my! I can so relate. I have three sons (one is just a baby). Between the two older ones, they manage to miss regularly. (I'm assuming it's NOT my husband!)

Thanks to you all for your support! At least I know I'm not alone fighting the bathroom puddle wars! :-)
