Failing to correctly mother a boy child

I have forgotten a vital piece of information in regards to Ben's education.

I forgot to lay down the law of putting the seat down when he is finished.

I hope it is not too late to retrain him in correct bathroom etiquette!

Unfortunately, I forgot to train mine to lift the silly thing prior to "business." Hence the name of my blog... Eck. Hope you have better luck retraining yours than I! ;o)~

Uh, yeah. My little boy, now 7, peed off the front step of our house into my rose bush for the first 3 years of potty training. I'm not even kidding. I would turn my back and there he would be peeing off the step. Oy! Little boys! lol Strangely enough, my rose bush thrived! Hmmmmm. :)

It's a hopeless, disgusting, lost cause. Feel no guilt. I think it's a missing gene. It's that darn Y chromosome. Honest to God I had to stop in the middle of this comment to clean up pee. Aaaahhhh!

Just be happy if actually hits the toilet, I have instituted bathroom checks after Alonzo and Colin go. I also make them wipe up the puddle on the floor which they think is gross but I think is a justified consequence for failure to aim.
