we have this mirror…

by debi9kids on May 29, 2012

…that I like to call the gateway to hell.
Keith likes to refer to it as our “Narnia Closet” because it’s not only a double mirror in our bathroom, but if you slide open those doors, there is a “secret” entrance into…
my bedroom.
My bedroom.
But, that isn’t why this mirror is the gateway to hell.
Oh no.

You see, I have 6 sons.
And one husband.
And while my one son (Will) isn’t potty-trained yet, all of the other males in my home are.
(You can see where I might be going, right?)

If you look at the photo to the on the left, you will notice that the double mirror doors are next to the toilet…
Who does that????
Why on earth anyone wants to have a view of one’s self sitting on the toilet is completely beyond me.

I will say, it is beneficial in the potty-training process, as Will enjoys it when we tell him to “look at Big Boy Will going pee-pee on the potty.”
But, Lord knows, Debi does not want to be looking at Debi making a pee-pee on the potty, if you know what I mean 😉

But, the real kicker is this…
Will sits when he attempts to go potty.
The other 6 males in my home do not.
And every day,
that mirror is SPRAYED.
EVERY DAY, people.

And, even though I keep window wipes under the bathroom sink and BEG the boys to “please, dear God, wipe the mirror after you pee” it never fails to still have a “lovely coating” every single time I go into that room.

God help me.

I just have two words.

Oh Boy.

I SO feel for you. I DO NOT GET THE MIRRORS. At least they aren't at the front of the toilet though….:)

Lord. Can u imagine?
This house is filled with all sorts of "goodies" from the previous owners…

Life with boys, girlfriend! Mine also refuse to flush! It's a conservation effort. I.m not amused. Especially since my cats take every chance to drink out of that toilet!

I, too, have 6 boys . . . so can completely imagine. 🙂

I cannot fathom who would design a bathroom in such a way. Kinda weird if you ask me.

Poor you.

I'm sure I'd end up killing David and Adrian 🙂

Ask them to pee with their backs to the mirror…

Oh good heavens yes! Thank goodness we do not have mirrors like these but hec! The floor!

Oh my goodness. I am sorry but I could not help but laugh. Gotta love skook houses! One of our bathrooms has purple carpet. My son is not the best aimer. Yeah, I have to get a carpet cleaner regularly…

Ohhhhh you poor thing! Little Dude sits to pee on the potty – I'm grateful there are no mirrors for him to spray. 😉

Funny Face

I am with you on this one. It doesn't matter how many containers of Clorox wipes are available, that "issue" is just not going to get cleaned up. I don't get it. Males. 😉
