So I get up this morning, and decide I'm going to take a shower...I have a long wooden handle with a loofa sponge at the end of it that I use to clean my feet with (it's wonderful).
We have 2 showers, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs........I decide to shower downstairs today but my loofa is upstairs.....I hear my DD in the hallway upstairs and call to her!

ME: Abigail???
DD: Yeah mommy?
ME: Can you grab me my loofa?
DD: your what??? (she's 6)
ME: My loofa! It's like a rough sponge on a long wooden stick, it's hanging in the shower.
DD: I don't know what you mean the toilet brush?
ME:'s hanging in the shower!!
DD: (comes to the steps where I can see her, holding my loofa).....Mommy, you mean THIS toilet cleaner?
ME: (kinda freakin out).....Have you used that to clean the toilet????????
DD:.........NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mommy...........................................(whewww)........................JEREMY DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, you got 8 yr. old son has been using my loofa on a stick to clean OUR toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know whether to laugh or cry!!

I think I'll cry icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Julie.........that is precisely what my thought process was!!


As I yell............ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????? up the steps I hear my DH giggling in the bedroom (still in bed), and he says "looks like a toilet brush to me too.........I always wondered why you hung it in the shower, but..........figured you knew best!"

All I can say is, the next loofa will be introduced to all children before being left unattended!!

I'm just glad he knows what the toothbrushes are for!!!!!! lol

OOOh, this is hilarious!! I laughed so hard I cried, it took me 5 minutes to compose myself to tell my DH what was so funny.

Can you imagine what yor family has been thinking everytime they've heard you say something was unsanitary?...Uh, right mom then why do we keep the toilet brush in the shower?

Everytime I see a loofa I will think of this story! Thanks for sharing!

That's so funny! I recently (and luckily!) caught my one year old scrubbing away at the toilet with my toothbrush!!! I, too wondered whether to laugh or cry... I think I did both!

I literally, upon realizing what was happening thought "Thank God I never scrubbed ANY other part of my body with that thing!!!"

Believe me, anytime I buy something out of the ordinary for use on MY BODY, it will be introduced to my children as though it were a new sibling!!!!! (and then LOCKED up!) lol

Now THAT is hilarious!

When my son was 3 I caught him running water over the toilet brush and then brushing his hair with it. He thought he was doing a good thing!

Someone told me to write this stuff down....I'm so glad I did. The kids love when I get it out occasionally and read their stories. They laugh and say, "We were so funny back then!"

Yesterday, I found two of my kids in the bathroom in front of the mirror. My 5 y/o was cutting his own hair using a real pair of scissors. And my 2 y/o was standing next to him, smiling as she was "cutting" her hair with a pair of play dough scissors. My oldest is very proud of his brand new hair cut and thinks he looks beautiful.

Adevag my now 11 yr. old son almost cut his hair one time when he was 3 and I must have seemed upset because less than a yr. later, just barely 4...I sent him to bed early as a punishment for being disrespectful to me (the night before his first day of preschool mind you) and he took my DH's hair clippers and shaved a big square in the front of his hair!!!!!

I almost died!! I was freaking out and my DH made me realize that he did it as a sort of "revenge" on me for punishing him. So instead of racing to wal-mart to have them fix his hair before the first day of school.......I made him go the whole first week of school with his hair like that.........cured his fascination with cutting his own hair! lol

My DD tried to cut her hair when she was 3 as well and my DS (the one who shaved the square into his head) grabbed the scissors from her (he was 8 at the time) and said "Trust me Abby, you do NOT want to do that!!" lol

That reminds me of these 2 girls I went to elementary school with. We were in 5th or 6th grade. One of the girls cut the others hair off while she was sleeping. It looked BAD! And her mother made her wear it like that for a while.

Tiffany LOL.........I know it seems so mean....but truly I wanted him to realize that he wasn't going to manipulate me and that if he did something he would reap the consequences of his actions and boy did he learn a lesson!!!!!

Tiffany29 Posted 20 Apr 2010 , 11:57pm

Oh, I would do the same. My son cut 2 shirts, a pair of jeans, his little bookbag strap and his hair. Three of these things in one day at school (kindergarten)! Apparently he finished his work before everyone else and was bored.
I didn't notice the hair for a day or two, it wasn't that noticeable, until I was trying to fix his hair and couldn't figure out why he had all these long hairs that didn't blend in!
So I told him if he wanted to cut his clothes up, go ahead, he could borrow one of his sister's outfits!

my other son (now icon_cool.gif cut his sister's hair when she was 4, he was 5.....I could've killed him!! She was absolutely bald until she was nearly 3 yrs. old and all I ever wanted was a little girl with long hair for me to play with LOL. We had to get all her hair cut off into a short little pixie style!!

He cut half of her head (pretty well, according to the beautician lol) of hair about 2" above her shoulders!

I had an employee come in horrified one day because one of her FOUR children was walking around the house that morning looking for THE toothbrush. Not their toothbrush, THE toothbrush. Apparently, all four of her children had been sharing the same toothbrush for a while.
