When I was little, we took a trip to Texas to visit my godparents. They lived in Dallas and had two boys around my age. I'll never forget a cute saying my godmother had in a bathroom that read something like, "If you sprinkle when you tinkle, Please be neat and wipe the seat." I didn't really understand that being a girl, but am now fully educated having a house full of boys. There's nothing like waking up early in the morning and sitting on a soaking wet seat after all three boys beat you to the bathroom while they were half asleep. Sometimes I wonder if they even open their eyes to look at what they're doing. It doesn't get any better throughout the day. I've heard them have anything from "Star Wars Light Saber Battles" to contests on who can go the "longest," "fastest"... you get the idea. It's the times when they hit the walls, the floor...ANYTHING but the toilet that gets me. Our two older boys even convinced our youngest son to go over the balcony of our staircase once to make a "waterfall." The saying, "Boys will be boys" has come to mind almost every single day in this house. I like the saying from my godmother's bathroom better though. One day the floor tiles will be clean and the seat will be dry. Knowing these boys though, somewhere, out there, in a Galaxy far, far away..."The Force" will still be used for good, but bathroom cleaner will be there to take care of the rest.
