Accountability ~ To account for one's actions.
I HATE, no I LOATH having to clean the
boy'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
boys, 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
boys 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
boys have been more careful when using the bathroom. I even caught
Jacob begging Super Noah to sit instead of standing. That was priceless!
This has been teaching accountability at its best!
