I have 3 boys. Two little ones, and one big one. The two little ones share a bathroom upstairs. Lord, help me. That place smells like a public restroom most of the time. And it's not because I don't clean it. It's because nobody can aim. I even keep Clorox wipes up there and wipe the potty down at least once a day. To make matters even worse, one of them, the oldest little man, is a sleep pee-er.(I wasn't really sure how to spell that one!) No, not a sleep walker. I mean, that when he needs to go potty, he is in such a deep sleep that he will "think" he is in the bathroom when he isn't. Let me give you a couple of real life stories. You can't make this stuff up.
One night when I went upstairs before bed to check on the boys, I noticed that Jack wasn't in his bed. So, I looked on the sofa in their playroom. He wasn't there either. I went across the hall and looked in that bedroom...no Jackson. As I made my way back into the playroom, I glanced in the bathroom. (the light was on b/c they always make me keep the light on in the bathroom) Jackson was curled up in the fetal position on the floor, dead-to-the-world asleep...with no pants on. And he had peed all over the toilet...with the lid DOWN. So after I take him back to bed, I get to scrub a toilet and the floors too.
Another time, I heard Wyatt screaming like he was having a night terror (which he has never had). So I ran up the stairs, flipped on the light and went over to him. He was soaked. I thought "Is he sweating? No too wet? Did he pee? On his own head?" And then I saw Jackson. He was laying with his head at the foot of his bed on top of his covers. He had peed on his brother. Really. I promise I did not make that up. True story.
We have had lots of times of him coming downstairs and walking around in circles in our room, obviously looking for the bathroom. Even starting to go on our floor. He has peed in the trashcan, on the floor in the playroom, always on the outside of the shower door, ALL over the toilet, and very often on the seat of the potty. That one is particularly my favorite. Oh how I love to sit down in the middle of the night because someone (not always Jackson) has...uhmm..wet the seat.
So, basically, I spend alot of time in my house cleaning all of the potties. There is always a box of cleaning wipes in each of the bathrooms. That does cut down on time on Wonderful Wednesday(which is the day I clean my whole house). Maybe Mallory will be able to do a better job than the others...
