A Very Clean Butt

So today I continued the cleaning up from Thanksgiving. This is probably the least favorite of my many chores in life. Give me a vaccum, a toilet brush, a rag to dust, a diaper to change, heck I'll even spackle and paint. But when it comes to doing the dishes I would just rather not. I love to cook I love to bake, I just need someone else to clean up the mess. My husband tries to help, but I am so anal, for lack of a kinder word, that I just have to go and clean up behind him. So back to my cleaning the kitchen, I noticed that it had been kind of quiet. This is never good in a house when children are awake. I began to investigate. Jereme, good, on the couch watching TV. Brianna, okay, on the floor eating paper.... don't ask. Jordon, standing there... looking suspicious. I asked what he was doing and he said " I don't know". I then asked do you need to go to the potty ( we are potty-training). He informed me he did not. Okay, maybe everyone was just being good. I walk in to the laundry to put a load in and glace in to the bathroom. Instantly I noticed not one, not two, but a mountain of wet wipes peaking out of the toilet. " WHO USED ALL THE WET WIPES.... JEREME!". " I DIDN'T DO IT JORDON DID"...."JORDON... WHY" " I DON'T KNOW".. Now something to note. Our toilet in the downstairs bathroom can handle about one sheet of single-ply toilet paper at a time, before it explodes and hits the floor. So who do you think had to go fishing. Thats right me! I cleaned it all up just in time to walk up stairs and find that he had done the same thing to the toilet upstairs. Just Great! This toilet can handle a little more. My husband remodled this bathroom and put the toilet in that can flush an enormous amount of golf balls in one shot. However, do not be fooled. It can not flush 50 wet wipes in one shot. Next time I buy a toilet I want the vendor to tell me how many wet wipes can this baby flush, not golf balls... seriously like I want to flush golfballs.. then again if you have kids anything can happen. So once again I went fishing. I do have to say.. I am glad that I have stressed wiping enough and it got through to Jordon. Now all I have to do is stress how much!
