What Would Your Kids Do?


Question: If you saw a bathroom sink filled with pillows and covered with a sign that read "DO NOT USE," would you spit your toothpaste into that sink?

If you were seven years old and lived in my house, you would. And did.

"The pillows are a reminder that the sink doesn't work!" I shrieked. "Remember?"

I have never prayed for anything more fervently than for Fed Ex to hurry up and deliver my bathroom faucet and drain.

Kids are retarted. Yours are espically retarted.

How could you say such a thing??? For one, you didn't even spell it right. Anonymous people are always the ones to insult this blog.

Ha ha ha! I'm laughing my butt off from reading this post. Keep it up Jana!

I love this picture. It lets me know that things like this don't only happen in my house! Kids just don't think sometimes. Mine would probably say that the pillow was in his way and his hands were wet so he just had to spit on it! Thanks for this morning's laugh!

HAHAHAHAH!! If there hadn't been a pillow or a sign, it probably wouldn't have been a problem. That seems to be the way kids work...they like to do whatever you don't want them to do.

Beth said...

Yes. Just because I don't like being told what to do...lol

Reminds me of the time I used the toilet during my parents bathroom remodel. It was clear on the other end of the bathroom from where it normally was, but I thought it was the toilet's new locale. My mom wasn't so happy when she had to clean up that mess.

It would be the first and only time my kids spit made it to the sink.

Gigi said...

If you have a mouthful of toothpaste that's about to explode - what do you do? You spit it wherever. That's a kid's mentality.

Why are some people so mean? Obviously because they are unhappy in their own lives.

My child would just spit on the floor. And leave it there, until I step on it. Not that we've ever had that issue...(yes that is FILLED with sarcasm, which oddly enough my daughter started picking up at 3, maybe we use it a bit too much...)

Oh geez, I swear my kids would.
UGH! LOL

Sadly... I would probably have done it to...

You should have just used saran wrap :D

Kary said...

At least it is good to know that I am not alone!!! My kids would totally do this!!! That is why this is so funny to me!

Kristina said...

What's really retarded is spelling retarded the wrong way. Anon's comment is almost as funny as the post.

My 10 year-old son would've done the same thing. "I just wanted to see what would happen" is the excuse I would've gotten.

Jackie said...

This reminds me of the time our sewer backed up and my husband was fixing it. Everyone was told not to flush the toilets on punishment of grounding. When the kids would go in the bathroom I'd knock and say don't flush, remember no flushing. You can all guess what happened. My oldest said he just wanted to see what would happen if he did flush....kids! It's funny now 3 years later.

Sarah Sharp said...

Can you place saran wrap over the top of the sink? At least if they spit on that you could easily change it out!

Dream Girlies said...

That is hilarious. They are soooo silly. I love children!!!

Stefany said...

Mine have done very similar things with a broken bathroom sink recently. Kids!

And by the way, @ Anonymous, not only did you spell "retarded" wrong, but you also spelled "especially" wrong.
