    Default my pet hate at the moment is

    Why do boys when they go to the toilet aim everywhere except the toilet!!!!! today i've had 4 boys one was in nappies thats ok, But the other 3 they are 5 years old and they just can't aim straight!! twice in 3 hours i had to go and clean the bathroom wee all over the floor and toilet seat. Hubbie moaning even one of the minde parent when to the toilet after her son and she didn't say anything about the floor nice job hey

    I have three boys of my own so I'm used to it. They don't seem to be able to concentrate do they ?

    5 year olds! Try 3 10/11 year olds, an 8 year old and a hubby. I make hubby clean the downstairs loo every night and send my only girl mindee who is 11 upstairs to be by herself in a cleaner environment. But we all know men cant do 2 things at once ie wee and aim

    I'm with you on that! One of my mindees is the same. 5yr old boy. All over the floor when you walk in.

    And the other thing - none of them flushing the toilet - even the 8yr old girl I mind. The amount of times a day I say 'Flush the toilet...' Like everyone else wants to see it.

    I got my worst offender to design a poster for flushing and washing hands. My worst offender was actually my own son He is still my worst so the poster didnt work even though he has looked at it for at least the last 12 months.

    My almost 4 year old prefers to sit down to pee so I have no probs there. He doesnt like messy pee as he calls it.

    I know I was frightened of the sound of the toilet flushing when I was little. Maybe we can use that excuse for some of them , the others are just lazy little s*ds

    Living in a household full of males ranging from 3yrs to 44yrs (even the 44yr old has problems at times

    Painted ping pong ball in the toilet - gives them something to aim at!

    my down stairs loo absolutley stunk for about a week but i cleaned it every night and washed the floor etc but it was still really stinky
    then i went in after an ex mindee aged 4 and discovered he'd peed all up the wall and had been doing so all week,

    that is funny AJ

    Thats reminded me - a while back there was a stink in my bathroom so I cleaned out the bins, drains, washed floors (real scrubbing) etc.. as you do, nope the smell was still there so I redone everything.
    It was still blinkin there...

    Duh - didn't think to check in the potty (that my son hasn't used for nearly 6months I just store it in the bathroom) - I hasten to add that its one of the chair type things with a removal cassette compartment, lid the lot.

    It finally dawned on me to check - gross (the stink had been there about a week).

    I have always wondered why the males toilets always stink so bad compared to womens (school loos are the worst but at least they have part of an excuse - many of the kids are young!)
