How do you think toilet target practice would work out as a new homeschool course of study?
It’s a necessary life skill for a man. Is it not?
1. Because it’s disgusting when they don’t have good aim.
2. My future daughter-in-laws will thank me. Maybe.
You see, I hate chores.
I hate doing them myself, and I hate assigning chores for other people to do even more.
But, the one chore that really makes my blood boil?
Wiping the dried up pee from around the toilet bowl.
What chore do I hate even more than that?
Wiping dried up pee from the wall or floor.
I mean c’mon. There’s a big giant bowl. Point the penis there!
I found this foam “star” in the toy box. I really have no idea what it is, but my son is not happy that I put it in the toilet.
I didn’t expect him to see it right away, but he’s attached to my hip and tries to read my drafts when I’m writing posts.
Yeah, teaching your kids to read is overrated. I recommend holding out on that as long as possible.
This star is a great target. Hit any of the points, win a ticket.
Make a bulls eye, win $5!
Yeah, that’s not gonna happen, because reward systems don’t work. But, if you make it in, then you don’t have to wipe it up!
I had a friend that told me something once that I always remembered. She said that when she did the laundry, she would pray for her children’s purity. I loved that idea. It was so true to her heart for her children. I always admired her love for the Lord, and her ability to share it with her whole family. So much of that sharing, is due to her fervant prayers for her children. Something I wish I was better at doing.
Although, I’ve never adopted the laundry prayer, I got to thinking today. How about I pray for my boys every time I have to wipe their pee off the bathroom floor?
I will pray for their purity, because that’s in the penis aiming department, too!
I will pray that their future wives do not have kids that pee all over the bathroom. Or worse? Husbands.
I will pray that I do not morph into momzilla when I’m wiping up their nasty pee crust.
I will pray they pass this target practice course with flying colors!
What chore do you despise? Leave a comment and tell me!
