Inside The Bowl: A Mother’s Struggle

  1. Lol this made me laugh. Personally raising two boys I never had this problem cause I had a wonderful care giver who taught the boys to pee sitting down. When I asked my farmer husband why he never stood to pee, he said farmers had to take every advantage to rest, and sitting to go pee was one of those times. My caregiver, yep she was a farmers wife.

  2. LMAO. I know this isn’t going to make you feel better but I am so glad to hear I am not the only woman in the world who had to go through this. I moved into a house with 1970s brown shag carpet in ever room, including the bathrooms. my son was 2–that carpet was the first thing to go.

  3. I totally have the same problem.. I have two sons (ages 8 & 10) and a 49 year husband and NONE of the three of them understand how a toilet works.

    I have 4 toilets in my house and three of them (I keep on for myself, that no one is allowed to use but me) ALWAYS have pee on them..

    Men, no matter the age are all piggies..

  4. This cracks me up. Then behind the toilet seat there is a cesspool of icky crap that somehow manages to get stuck there! Drives batshit crazy! I have to clean it daily!

  5. As a mom of 7 sons, I personally give this a 5 star rating! Can I recommend you add a part two to this video? Maybe titled something like….It’s All Fun And Games until mom sits in your pee because you lacked the courtesy to lift the darn lid!

  6. Meredith, I love your posts! I am a single Mother of four children, and my boyfriend was watching one of your videos with me and said, “OMG…she’s your twin! You act exactly like her!” LOL!!! Thank you for pointing out the inappropriate things in a Mother’s life. I really appreciate it, and it helps me to know that I’m not the only one out there.

  7. I love how you reacted with ‘and I was confused…’ . You can tell you are a Mother with young children. Don’t sweat it, you are doing a great job!

  8. I came across your videos on facebook. Glade to know, I’m not the only one! I have enjoyed watching your videos today. Keep them coming!

  9. I showed this to my husband and got the infamous eye roll along with an explanation as to why he boys can not hit INSIDE THE BOWL. Let me just tell you, I so wish I would have recorded his reasoning because I would have posted it here.

    I was told first and foremost if he stands to close his feet may touch the toilet bowl and it’s cold… my reply so is your pee when I step in it not to mention the blatantly obvious, I know the toilet is cold, I DO in fact sit when I pee.

    The next one well I had no rebuttal. I was told the “pressure” is different from start to end making it harder to aim. Seriously? I have NO words. Gotta love our man children. Lol

  10. Well let me speak as a man here. Yeah this bugs me too. I have taught my son early on…the bowl is your friend. If you mess up WHILE LEARNING, let me know and we can clean it up together. Now, just turned 7, it is his responsibility to clean if he misses. Have not had an issue yet and surely no subway station smell in our house. It gets much much worse in public restrooms. There guys seem to forget everything they learned of civility or maybe it is just “I dont care I dont have to clean in here” mentality. Ill spare the details, but well yeah lets leave it at that! 😉 Just joined your page and I think it is awesome!! I will be following. Thanks.
