How do you do it??

It's a daily battle: how to keep the bathroom from smelling like a urinal with a 4 1/2 year old boy around. Seriously, any tips?? It's amazing how many heretofore un-thought of nooks and crannies Zion can get pee into. I spend entirely too much time on the floor around the toilet trying to figure out where that smell is coming from. I mean, he gets the pee into the toilet most of the time, but every 3rd or 4th go he'll let his attention drift at the end and lets go and pees, well, anywhere. The back of the toilet, the hinges (these are a total bitch to try to get clean), the shower door, the floor, the tank, the trashcan...

Do other mamas of little boys have this problem (please say yes, LOL)?

It's not all complaining with Zion, though. He did something really cool today- he started to read! Just a little bit, but he was looking at the WoW Gallery of Pets and accidentally navigated to a different part of the site and couldn't get back to the gallery. He called me for help, but then said, "Oh, I got it, Mommy! I found the "G" for "Gallery" and clicked on that". So cool!

Yes, other little boys do this. Nathan is scared of loud noises and I have to cover his ears in public restrooms. Luckily, it is short weather now because he jumps when someone flushes and sometimes gets my leg. SO GROSS!

The bathroom at home needs a lot of mopping.

I'm impressed but not surprised that he picked out a letter. After all, he is quite observant!

I feel as frustrated as they wanted us to think KB felt when banging his head to the musaack. Fuck.

My little man does this, it STINKS in his bathroom, really STINKS! I gag sometimes just thinking about it. Let me know if you figure something out.

Way to go Zion, congratulations on reading!!!! :)
