As a mom to a sassy 4 year old diva with a mega personality, our life is full of adventure, learning and accessories! The two of us have been blessed beyond measure to blend nearly seamlessly with Irishman and his two boys making us a family of five (with one dog, three cats, a fish and a tarantula). Ducky blogs at Batcrap Crazy.
If there are any reservations about combining households with Irishman, its that I need a new poop schedule…a new system. I am going to have to revamp what previously worked for me to accommodate there being more people in the house. True there is one more bathroom than where Lil Duck and I lived before but the ratio to people and bathrooms has dramatically changed. I’m pretty sure my colon is in a panic over this.
What if someone is right outside the door? And I actually have to share a bathroom with….a boy! I have never shared a bathroom with a boy. Terrifying I tell you! Is there therapy for this? A transition book? Oh God! Why didn’t my mother prepare me for this?
Do you suppose its possible to require everything with a penis to use an outhouse? I wonder if I can build an outhouse. I would pony up the moolah to heat it and provide AC in the summer. That’s reasonable, yes?
Sure I have used boy bathrooms but I’ve always had the safety and relaxation of coming home to MINE. I never have to wonder why the floor is sticky *ick*. There’s always toilet paper, it doesn’t stink, there’s no surprise failure to flush by previous occupants…speaking of occupants WHY do boys spend an hour taking one poop?! Seriously? Don’t they make special toilets for that? Like the ones at truck stops?
Since the renters of my old house are moving in this week there is no turning back. At least not for 12 months. I figure by then I will have a new system…or a maid….or a maid AND a new system. Suppose it would cause problems to designate one of the bathrooms for use by those who exclusively sit to pee?
Yeah… that’s kind of what I thought to. So ladies, what are your survival tips! HELP!
