Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own. I will only ever blog about product I actually use.
You know I love being a mom of boys, let me just put that out there right at the front.
I LOVE being a mom of boys.
I’m thankful every day that they’re boys because I’d be terrified of having to raise a girl who would probably grow up to be my twin in every way, no one wants that!
What I do not love about being a mom of boys is cleaning bathrooms up after them. I suspect it’s something like cleaning a bathroom up after a gaggle of teenagers (boys & girls) get done in a bathroom, but with a lot less hair product on the mirror and a lot more pee on the floor and toothpaste on the walls.
Seriously, toothpaste on the bathroom walls. Who even knew that was a thing that happens?!?
No one in my house knows, that’s for sure. *sarcasm font*
“I don’t know how the toothpaste got there mama, it just gets there I guess…” ~resident 6yo
The powder room got so bad at one point that my mother (who was never supposed to see it btw – why did she go in there?!? Darn toddlers needing to pee when the main bath is occupied *grumble grumble*) is now desperate to have her cleaning lady come over to my place and do a once-over on the place because we live like animals, apparently.
No mom, not like animals, just a house full of boys. 100% opposite of the house I grew up in. I have 2 sisters and a mom and none of us, that I’m aware of, ever peed on the bathroom floor/walls or smeared toothpaste on any flat surfaces.
But I digress.
I had to finally put my foot down and ban the preshus from using the small bathroom. I spent what felt like hours cleaning it from top to bottom. Literally. I think the only thing I didn’t wipe down / disinfect was the ceiling, and only because we have 12 ft ceilings and I don’t have a ladder.
I’m now the proud owner of a girls only bathroom for the first time since I started living with boys, and it feels glorious!
Shout out to my hardworking cleaning supplies whose sacrifice will be forever remembered.
In celebration of my now getting to pee in a bathroom that doesn’t smell like pee, my friends at P&G are sponsoring the giveaway below so that you too can take back whatever child-ruined room you need to tackle before school lets out and all hops and dreams of a clean house are dashed. Good luck! This giveaway runs until midnight on June 30th.
