Bain of my existence: c’est la salle de bains


September 8, 2011 by admin

Pardon my french, but this potty training thing has been literally the worst thing I’ve ever had to do. I am beginning to feel like I live in a bathroom.

This modern potty is too simple.  Stuff goes in and gets dumped out.  You’d think by now there would be some kind of disposable removable bottom so you can just press a button and make the waste disappear.  A baby bidet so moms could be a little less hands on or  maybe even a giant diaper genie for disposable potties?  I shouldn’t complain because we have had a lot of successful diaper-free mornings lately in this house, and I’ve had a glimmer of hope that my two growing boys will one day bathroom by themselves.  Maybe by the time we go to Asia in a few months?  My hubby saw an ad for this restaurant in one of the guidebooks that put things into perspective.  Why anyone would want to eat in a toilet-themed restaurant is beyond me.  If you want the real experience, just come to my house where we are pottying 24/7 and it is not pretty. Except when we get cute moments like this







and I realize it’s all totally worth it.

    Hang in there! It takes perseverance, but in your case, twice as much! Enjoy-as long as they get potty trained by university years, we’re laughing……I feel your pain!

    Heh! Heh! Are they standing on the Charmin?
