Be a Sweetie, Wipe the Seaty

Be a Sweetie, Wipe the Seaty

 
Here I sit upon my throne, for a fit my baby’s throne, here’s my scepter, here’s my crown, the air vent blocks out all the sound.

I love chalkboard signs.

When we first brought Courtney home I used one to politely remind people that hand-washing was a must. also to let them know that the bathroom isn’t soundproof, so if we hear a flush and an immediate burst out the door (sometimes I’d swear it was SIMULTANEOUS), we’d know you'‘re a grossy-Josie or a Grubby-Greg.I tried to be cute about it, but Courtney immunity was compromised due to her prematurity, and it really could be a matter of life and death.

if only I could shut my ears off and not notice, but after taking care of small kids I’m just tuned into that now, whether I like it or not. Ah well.

Eventually I was facing the less glamorous problem of trying to keep on top of commode-cleanliness. Normally a once a week thing, it was becoming a bit of a challenge to stay on top of someone’s, um…tribute to the Thunder-dome.

I was getting really annoyed about it, too, and nearly wrote a sign that advised the person to see a vet or exorcist or something but honestly? Not my chocolate zoo, not my chocolate monkeys. (I’m a homemaker, not Cinderelly-Cinderelly). As long as this friend cleaned up after themselves, I was happy.

Hence, the new sign.

And you know what?

My potty has stayed PORCELAIN-white! Maybe even got a chuckle or two.


I’d love to know about any creative ideas you have for keeping things in order in your home…the less conventional, the better!
