Bathroom Rules

July 11th, 2010 (01:14 pm)

current mood: confused

I just overheard my son's friend, age 7, complaining to my son about the "lame" bathroom rules we have in our house -- you know, the rules that say you have to flush the toilet and wash your hands when you're finished. Really lame stuff. I was proud of my son for explaining to him that it's important to wash your hands to get rid of germs. But the lesson fell on deaf ears. His friend still thinks our rules are stupid and overly restrictive. Don't other families have similar policies?

I suspect

that if you talked to HIS mom, she'd likely say she had similar rules. He's just trying to make your son feel like you have too many rules. Some kids are like that.

... and I'd be following him around, Lysoling everything he touched....

This reminds me of the following dialogue, overheard as two boys are leaving a restroom, and only one washed his hands.

A: Didn't your parents teach you to wash your hands after you pee?

B: No, they taught me not to piss on my hands.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
