Leaving the toilet seat up
I have never minded the whole male leaving the toilet seat up phenomenon. I just put it back down whenever I see it up. Well today I DID mind. It was not for my sake but for Alexander's. We have two bathrooms in our house. One for the master and one for the Hall. I have marked the hall bathroom as Alexander's and Eva's. In fact I still haven't even put a shower curtain up because I just use that bathroom for their baths. Well Alexander is usually the only one that uses the toilet in there too. He is getting really good at using the toilet. He doesn't even need me to help him now. He just runs in there puts his toilet seat on the toilet seat and does this strange maneuver where he climbs up onto the bath tub and sits on the toilet backwards and then stealthily (sarcasm) turns himself back around somehow to sit on the toilet the right way. I didn't even know he was in there this morning but all of the sudden I hear him screaming in the bathroom. I run in there and he is IN THE TOILET. His toilet seat was also in the toilet .(partially) Daniel has started using the hall toilet recently and he left the toilet seat up. Well Alexander is still pretty young so he ran in there not realizing the toilet seat could actually be up threw his toilet seat into the toilet and went to sit on it and fell in.
I was laughing inside but I rescued him and calmed him down. All day long now he dances around yelling toilet instead of going to the toilet. He is now scared of the toilet and will only go if I go inspect it first and help him on. Talk about digression. Now I am officially on the "Leaving the toilet seat up is annoying" band wagon.
Maybe I will get one of these so Alexander can be trained early on.
