Why playing in the toilet is awesome

By the B Squared (Baby Boy)

Age 2

Well - first off - the toilet itself is AWESOME

A. it's forbidden
B. it has working parts and gadgets like this great flusher and a lid that if you use all of your super human toddler strength you can maybe get off
C. it is filled with water!!!!! I mean - really how great can one thing be?

THEN you get caught playing in it and three awesome things happen...

1. Your Mom makes this great gasping choking sound of horror. Don't be afraid first timers - it might be a little scary at first but it is so funny to see her thrown so far off her game - the reaction itself is well worth the crime.

2. Then while she is freaking out going to find something called disinfectant and something else called a plunger - you get to stand at a stool at the sink and play with - wait for it - more water! Only this stuff is warm and soapy - so great.

3. Finally you get stripped out of your clothes (something about germs and poop and stomach virus's - I am not sure) and you get to run around having some nekky time because by now your sisters have dismantled Mommy's sewing machine and she has run out of time to finish dealing with you.

All in all - an experience I highly recommend.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Wow, I never thought the toilet was so much fun -- but now I see that it is!

Kelley with Amy's Angels said...

Now THAT was a fun post to read! Made me giggle... : )

Thanks for stopping by my blog today from SITS!

Liz said...

I think he and Little L were thinking alike because she did the same thing yesterday.
Too funny :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh, that's funny. For some reason, I got lucky that my son was never interested in playing in the toilet.

Poetikat said...

Holy Moley! How ever do you keep up? Very witty post. I know kids are wonderful, but I don't think I could cope with all that!

Kat

S.L.P said...

That's great! It totally puts my 10 month old playing in the toliet into perspective. Thanks for the laugh!

Pam's Pride said...

LOL!!!
The girls dismantling the sewing machine at the end really did it for me!! I have had my sewing machine messed with so many times it is only by the grace of God that it works!!

greedygrace said...

LOL! Hysterical!

I am lucky that my 3 year old has never shown much interest in the toilet! Now, if I can just get her to quit eating her boogers...

Happy SITS Day!

Tellie said...

Hahaha to funny! Great post!!

CINDERELLA said...

now that is outrageously funny.

TuTu's Bliss said...

LOL!!! This is a great post. Do you think if I gave them cups and "toilet" toys the forbidden wonder would be gone?

Laura said...

hahaha too true! Love it

Mrs. Jelly Belly said...

Oh, that's hilarious. Life with toddlers - how I don't miss it. LOL

Mrs. M said...

What is it about little boys and the potty? When Monkey was 3 he actually DRANK toilet water. Like got a cup and scooped himself some. Of course it was blue and "looked like juicey" so it was all my fault...

Poison control got a big kick out of me when I asked if I should scrape his tongue.

Mimi said...

OMG, thanks for the early morning laugh!

Enjoy your SITS day!

Rachel said...

awwww, the little boy mischief, soo cute:)

Charmaine said...

Oh the fun of having boys. I would have freaked out too!

Yaya said...

Lol! Love it from the boy's perspective! I never looked at it that way!

Sugar Mommy said...

I feel the need to grab some hand sanitizer!

This has yet to happen in our family, but I'm waiting. It's inevitable!

K said...

My two year old is all about the toliet.

I have to keep the bathroom door closed at all times.

Very funny.

Melissa said...

Too funny! I know if things get too quiet my little one can probably be found stuffing paper in the toilet... And then having to play with the warm soapy water is such a punishment! Great post!

Cyn said...

Does your little man know MY little man?

Your life sounds like mine. Have to go, now. My nine-year-old is climbing over me to get to the two-year-old hiding behind my chair...

Happy sits! :) Great blog!

Astrid said...

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Man...the stories we can tell! Why do most of them revolve around the yicky toilet????

LOL!
Happy SITS day!

Pam said...

Another great post! I love your perspective. He sounds like a real cutie. A Mom's job is never done, right?!

sandy said...

Oh boy! Two year old boys are so much fun!

countryfriedmama said...

For some reason, the mountain of toys is never enough. The toilet (and every other nasty thing in the house) is so much more fun. Yuck.

Jennifer Juniper said...

I went through those stages with my boys and I'm so glad they are behind me. My kids were more likely to rip off their diaper (when they were about 1) and play in the poopie...I think I made the same sound and went through the same routine! happy sits!

Cat said...

Too funny.. And true..

Have a great SITS day..

tammy said...

Hehe...so, so true. ;)

Joy said...

Oh fun!!

Sarah said...

Very cute! My 2 year old whole-heartedly agrees!

Creative Junkie said...

ROTF! Totally adorable post! And sadly, so true.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That was hilarious! I lucked out...the Princess Nagger didn't have a penchant for playing in the toilets...although she did enjoy emptying an entire roll of toilet paper in it and flushing it until it overflowed...good times. ;)

Happy SITS Day! :)

Jenny-Jenny said...

Soooo sooooo funny! So funny! I can't stop laughing.

The Mom said...

Happy SITS day to you! Thanks for the good laugh. Glad I've yet to experience this - got all girls - maybe that's why, I don't know! Either way - very true on the toddler front! :)

Kirsty said...

LOL sounds like a super awesome day for mommy too. Love your funny perspective! Happy SITS day!! :D

jesthebes.com said...

Oh that's great. I used to unroll all of the toilet paper just because I thought it was fun.

Lea Ann said...

Don't tell me that my little hooligan, Hurricane Luka, has somehow managed to make it over to your house to give lessons.

Allison D said...

what a great perspective. I laughed out loud!!!

Laura said...

How I remember those days, mainly wondering what it was they flushed down the toilet.

Taryn said...

HILARIOUS! Cute post!

Love,
Taryn

Juls said...

Double Dipped Sweets said...

Happy SITS day! This post is hilarious! I have 3 under age 6, and I am always running around fixing one thing before something else gets destroyed!

Lora said...

Oh so funny!

Future Mama said...

Haha! This is just too cute! love it! Hope you enjoy your SITS day! :)

Cher said...

natalie said...

My friend's son gets his own "drinks" out of the toilet. He thinks he is doing such a great thing!

My two girls never played in the toilet, though. Now that I think about it... I don't know why they never did, LOL! They both love playing in water!

koopermom said...

Perfect! I'm sure these exact thoughts have been in my little man's head before too!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Great writing B Squared! Especially for someone so young! ;)

I'm a mom to two young sons (2 and 4) and you can bet I'm not letting them read this post.

Thanks for the laugh though!

Oh My Gosh! That is so funny and I'm sure it's exactly what the little one is thinking too! ;)

Star Forbis said...

I went through the same thing, only with 2 year old twins. What a mess!! But, it's funny to look back on now, my girls are now 11.

christy rose said...

Very Funny! I laughed hard reading this. I have a 13 month old son and I just created a post on my blog about the same thing going on in my home a couple of days ago.

I felt like I was right there with ya sista!

Your son and my daughter must be penpals. She does this all the time! Her baby brother has started to notice the potty too. *Sigh*

Lisa said...

This cracked me up. It reminded me so much of my son.

Mandy said...

Ahh the toilet. My three year old probably would whole heartedly agree with this posting but she is, at the moment, too busy spilling cereal all over the kitchen floor. :)

Days of Whine & Noses said...

almost made me think about having some fun of my own with the toilet today :)

Happy SITS day!

Hilarious and utterly true.

That sounds like my life. My son loves to play in the potty. And with the plunger and any thing water related he can find. We use a lot of purell in our house. :)

Whirling Mama said...

Oh no, I must never let my 18 month old read this or it will be all toilet all the time.

Happy SITS day!

There are two sides to EVERY story.

Obviously.

Tanielle said...

Sooo true, why do they like to make us crazy?:-) I loved your posts, hope you had a wonderful SITS day!

Tammy Kling said...

This is cracking me up! I have to admit - as gross as it can be - I love how adventurous kids are! Their minds see things so differently than ours do!

Mandy said...

This mom of two boys is cracking up. :)

Controlling My Chaos said...

Yep, gotta love the toilet.

Rae Ann said...

I sincerely hope my BB never discovers the joys of the potty! Well, you know, to play in. I really hope he learns to use it some day!

Gamma Sharon said...

Again, Congrats on being the FB!
You are just to funny! My grandson (17 months old) loves the toilet! Oh, how fun it is to play with!!!

Michelle said...

Oh yikes! I don't envy you that one. Shhh the wee ones don't know that playing in the toilet was ever an option. And I'm trying to keep it that way ;)
