The Only Man of The House

The Umpire puts up with a lot in this house filled with girlyness. He has had to watch many hours of girly type shows, had to critique many dress up fashion shows, and can sometimes be heard heard singing songs with lyrics such as I love being a princess just because they get stuck in his head.

He really is not a complainer and takes it all in stride. He loves having three daddy’s little girls and definitely loves gets the perk of all three of them running to him as soon as he gets home from work everyday with there arms open wide for enormous hugs.

That being said there is one thing the girls do that drives him insane. before I go on, I do not do this. I repeat it is not me, just the girls. I promise! I wouldn’t admit to it even if it were true!

You see we only have one bathroom and the girls have a habit of not flushing when they go. The bathroom is upstairs and they do not like being up there alone. When no one wants to be there “bathroom buddy” as they call it. They are in quite a hurry to come back downstairs.

After hearing him complain and complain about this issue I suggested he make a sign. I did not really think he would until I went in there later and saw this.

While it does not really match the rest of the bathroom decor it has been quite effective. You also have to love the drawing for Shout who can’t read yet. Since seeing this I have thought up many signs to make about things that drive me crazy. That could be a whole other post!

What do your kids do that drive you crazy and what have you done to resolve it?

    bwah-haha… I’ve been known to leave similar signs around my house (most recently the “no food in the basement you little creeps!” sign.

    it still didn’t work.

    I think I may have to get more creative with my artwork and draw a bunch of creepy little cockroaches on the no food sign, that might make them stop and think :)
