One of the things I wanted to sort before next year is getting my youngest toilet trained and my middle child nighttime trained. Which is how I find myself sitting on the floor of my laundry while Mayhem is on the toilet NOT weeing! We are staging a sit in because he seems to be peeing every 10 minutes all over my floor, but put him on the toilet and we are currently an hour into our toilet time and there is no sign of urine so obviously he can hold it but just isn’t.
It’s like having a puppy in the house all over again.
The upside is that we have had the parents in law here which I know doesn’t sound like an upside but my mother in law has been a great help with the housework and my father in law has gotten us started weeding the garden.
As for housework Wednesday. I have to say for the very first time that I am not horribly embarrassed and not because the parents in law have dug me out of my squalor but because it was up to standard BEFORE they arrived! But the other thing is that it is still up to standard now that they have left!
As you can see from the photos it is reasonably early in the day here, so there is still some clutter about. The bucket in the kitchen is holding water with disinfectant and my mop pads in it to clean any little accidents. And the huge bowl has water beads in it for mayhem and mischief to explore with. As for the clothes at the end of the bed? They are The Man’s he for some reason dropped them on the end of the bed and I knocked them off while making it but haven’t put them away yet. The random stuff in the lounge is washing stuff as we have eleventybillion pairs of tiny jocks that need washing and drying at the moment. So I suppose I should get back to sitting on my laundry floor trying to convince Mayhem that wee goes into the toilet. All I can say is thank god we are in the new house with a tiled living area because cleaning all that carpet would be infinitely more irritating!
