Oh the Stench!!

So my 4 sons peed outside of the toilet so much that we are actually having to replace the floor in our 5 year old bathroom (here it is torn up) and the drywall, too, to get rid of the horrible stench…

    Rub their noses in it…

      Had I been drinking something at the time I read your comment, I would surely have spit it out my nose….

      Damn right.

    I hope you’re making them do all the dirty clean up work. That could teach them a lesson better than rubbing their nose in it. Although with the new floor/drywall I would probably resort to aforementioned rubbing of noses for any new offenses of weeing outside the bowl.

    Amazing. Make them sit down to pee if they can’t learn to aim!

    When my kids do something this careless and rude, I tell them the repair cost is coming out of their Christmas money. I’m sorry, but this is either attributable to motor control issues or eyesight. Plenty of men and boys can get it in most of the time. If they can’t then they need to pee outside or get occupational therapy.

    I just found out I’m having a boy.. this frightens me

    Or one could always just clean the bathroom floor before it sits there and has a chance to seep into the flooring. I’m sure some bleach, water, sponge, and bucket would have been much cheaper.

      Don’t be rude.  I have three boys and I can choose to run after them with a bottle of cleaner screaming like a banshee or I can love them for exactly who they are: scruffy, energetic, creative and dirty little boys and check the toilet seat before I sit down.

        Rude? By saying clean urine and feces off your floor? hmmm I guess pointing out an obvious health hazard is considered rude now. How many people enjoy getting up in the middle of the night barefoot and walking through urine raise your hands.. No one? oh ok. Please tell me why cleaning up nasty stuff your kid does requires “screaming like a banshee”? It’s disgusting to leave bodily fluids on your floor so long that it seeps through to the wood.. call me rude, don’t care. It just is. Would you go to someones house or to a public bathroom and sit down comfortably if the stench from inside made you gag?

          Yes. We have ALL cleaned up accidents (many!) from boys and girls alike. Pee and poo on the floor? Been there, done that.

          Needing a remodel from pee-soaked floors somehow takes it to another level that requires years of not figuring out a solution to a health and safety issue. I’m not judging, just suggesting that you find a solution before you end up doing this again in five years. Because, well, if they can’t aim, they can’t aim.

    I would make them clean the front of the toilet when they are done.. They learn to aim that way.. I was making my old man clean the toilet every morning cuz he never could hit it in the middle of the night. Now I dont have that problem with him. Just our friends lil boy.. LOL… And another thing is NEVER EVER HAVE CARPET IN A BATHROOM.. pee smell does not come out of carpet no matter how hard you scrub…

    I’ve raised 4 boys and never had such an issue, other than the occassional slip up when they’ve been busting first thing in the morning but if its cleaned up straight away there shouldnt be that problem. If anything it was my ex-husband that had that problem and he used to blame it on the boys…found out the truth after he left and there was no more issues with it.

    My three yr old was getting up to pee in the middle of the night and peeing on the bathroom wall (I have never figured out why). His 8 yr old brother would go into the bathroom behind him and dry it up so we never could figure out why the bathroom had such a horrible pee stench that just wouldn’t come out. When we went to replace the floor, we finally discovered the problem was actually the wall … so yeah I can totally relate to this!

    I would have a HUGE problem with their carelessness destroying my house. They apparently need further training with the potty. Make them sit down to pee until they learn to aim correctly. May have to resort back to the Cheerio method? Or like some else suggested, have them clean up after each time they use the bathroom.

    I have two boys and I have never had this issue.  Not once have they totally missed the toilet.  There may be the occasional drip on the edge of the potty, but it’s on the edge, and they know to clean it up, too.  My bathroom floor is 9 years old and looks brand new.  There is something going on here that is not right.  More potty training needed? Not enough supervision? Motor skills problems? I don’t know but something is wrong.

    A bottle of Lysol wipes on the tank and mom calling them in to clean their mess does a lot to make them aware of their lack of aim.  I don’t care if friends or over either.

    When we first moved in to our house the bathroom was fiberglassed from the floor to a spot about halfway up the wall.  Had to paint it with boat paint.  Pissed me off…until I realized it was PEE RESISTANT!!!  Three boys…no problem!

  • http://www.facebook.com/PrincessCizz Connie Lopez

    I’d make them go outside!!  LMAO!

  • Fontanelle Richardson

    They’d be peeing outside in a outhouse from now on.

    OMG these posts are harsh.  This is a venue of sharing and commiserating and foremost a good giggle.  We all have our issues and I’m sure there is at least one thing in each of your lives we could judge just as harshly.  He who casts the first stone…..  I’m so sick of the righteous but sure love those who are willing to share the hiccups in their lives. Here’s to a successful remodel.

    I have 4 boys too. And it’s impossible to follow them around cleaning up after them with every visit to the bathroom. We have 3 bathrooms in the house, but they are only allowed to use one so that it’s ‘monitored’ closely. There are some rude comments on here, from people who obviously don’t know what it’s like to raise 4 boys. I pick my battles or I’d be institutionalized by now.

    So, how long was the piss left on the floor that it rotted the floor? And you never did something about it until now? 

    This is “Sh*t my parents ruined out of laziness”

    Ok first off people on here need to stop being so judgmental and rude. I’m wondering if you might find you had a leak in your pipe that was seeping into the floor. Add that to your sons aim issues and it would explain the constant smell. Or you had carpet, cuz I can attest that pee smell does not come out of carpet..EVER.

    How disgusting. This site not only makes me glad I chose NOT to breed, it also makes me hate everyone else’s little brats.
