Clorox, Spiderman, and The Bathroom

Bathrooms are so important to mothers.

Are you laughing at me already? I'm serious! Think about all the time we spend in there- cleaning, potty training, pretending to poop so that we can have an excuse to lock the door for 5 minutes. It's such an important place, it deserves to be capitalized. The Bathroom. 

I could fill a novel with bathroom stories- easily. I think I posted once about how Spawn#3 tested the limits of my sanity by filling the toilet bowl with glitter, toys and the kitchen (bathroom?) sink. That was pretty horrendous. But one of the funniest things my rotten kid ever did in the bathroom had to do with Spiderman- and it was before I blogged, so I didn't take a picture (dang!). You'll have to make do with this artist's rendering- 

Yes, my adorable angelic child covered the whole, entire bathroom with a can of Spiderman "web". It was EVERYWHERE. It's too bad that our bathroom didn't have a blue theme, because the garlands hanging from the ceiling were really quite festive. The smell wanted to make you pass out, of course. But at least it didn't smell like pee in there. For once. 

I left up a little reminder of the silly string incident- right there up by the air vent. Because I haven't had 3 spare minutes in the past 2 years to drag a chair in there and get it off of the ceiling.

And while I could regale you with my bathroom stories for no reason, I actually have a point today (stop looking so surprised). The people over at Clorox, along with Sherri Shephard, have created The Clorox Lounge. It's a site designed to share a little humor about the bathroom and to give you a laugh. There's currently a Last Comic Sitting competition, where you can vote for which Mom and Dad comics tickle your funny bone.  If you're more of a Facebook person, check 'em out over there. 
*Guess what guys! Someone actually compensated me for writing something! Hilarious, huh?

  1. I love the point you make about moms pretending to go to the bathroom so we can lock the door. It's funny because we all know going to the bathroom doesn't bring peace because the kids will follow you and still be talking and asking for things or tattling, but at least we can lock the door for some type of boundary. Great post! ~Jennifer (your homeschool soulmate) :P

  2. I love it! Mental note, start closing the door. I've totally been slipping on this and so only get quiet bathroom time when the kid is asleep. What's wrong with me?!

    By the way, have you considered sending your art to one of those schools where you send your art and voila, you're an artist? You totally should! ;-)

  3. Love this post! Totally something I see happenning in my house as well! Congrats on the contract writing! Love it!

  4. LOL Sili! Can you believe I've never even had any formal art or Photoshop training???
    Thanks for your lovely comments, friends. <3

  5. Yeah well, Sheldon's been engaged about 10 minutes and I'm already bored with discussing center pieces, perhaps we'll just go with silly string......

  6. I have two words for you: Jackson Pollock.
