Accountability ~ To account for one's actions.

I HATE, no I LOATH having to clean the Superboy's (they are NOT Super when they pee on a seat!) bathroom. I know that compared to most boy's bathrooms theirs is clean. Because I clean it almost everyday!

I honestly think I might throw up if it went more than two days without being cleaned.

So I have given up! I decided earlier this week that it is no longer MY job to wipe off toilet seats that have been peed & pooped on. The Superboys, who are (almost) 12 & 13 years old should have learned by now how to aim when peeing & how to sit still while pooping. I sometimes wonder what the heck is going on in there! I do not want to give you the nasty details as to where I have found poop smears in the past!

I also TOTALLY blame them for deciding to teach Super Noah, my four year old, how to stand, aim & pee instead of sitting. Now Super Noah believes that sitting is only for girls (thank you Super Jacob). The Superboys teaching Super Noah how to stand, aim & pee ... that is like the blind leading the blind!

Not only have I decided that I will no longer clean their bathroom, but I have assigned a rotation schedule for THEM to clean the bathroom! Every other day one of the boys will be in the bathroom cleaning all of the pee & poop off of the toilets, all while being supervised by me (o: Anyone who worked for me in the past (I use to manage 400 + unit apartment communities) knows that I am a perfectionist. That toilet needs to shine from top to bottom! No streaks, no stains allowed!

It has been three days into my bathroom challenge & I have to admit (while smiling) it is working! The Superboys have been more careful when using the bathroom. I even caught Super Jacob begging Super Noah to sit instead of standing. That was priceless!

This has been teaching accountability at its best!
