I love my kids. In fact, nobody can bring me to tears quicker, or make me laugh harder, than these amazing people. I’ve been blessed beyond anything I could imagine. But, good grief can they gross me out. In fact, there are times when I marvel at the level of gross they can descend to in such a short amount of time. It may be a gift!
So, to get the weekend started off on a light-hearted note, here are 12 reasons why my kids gross me out (counted down from #12 of course):
#12- I find pee-soaked pull-ups stuffed in a trashcan at least a week after they were disposed.
#11- My son wipes his snotty nose on nearly every shirt I have on when I pick him up.
#10- Because he doesn’t want to interrupt his playtime in the backyard, my son uses his pants as a toilet.
#9- Speaking of toilets- when my sons aim every where else in the bathroom, except the toilet bowl, and then my wife and I walk barefoot through the bathroom or sit down on the toilet seat later on!
#8- When I tell my sons not to let any part of their body touch the urinal in a public bathroom and they proceed to drop their pants to their ankles and rest the entire lower half of their bodies against the rim- Awesome!
#7- Feminine products that are not disposed of properly and come tumbling out on the floor when we empty trash cans around the house for trash collection day!
#6- My son sticks his head in a public urinal and screams just so he can “hear the funny echo.“
#5- We find our pre-teen’s toothbrush, dry and unused, in their suitcase, weeks after camp is over.
#4- We find most of the clothes we packed for them for camp still folded the exact same way they were when we dropped them off a week earlier and it was at least 90 degrees all week.
#3- Finding used dental floss in my youngest son’s room because “he needed it to make his toy better!“
#2- Finding pee-soaked sheets stuffed at the bottom of a laundry basket days after they wet the bed.
And the #1 reason why my kids gross me out is….. going number 2 and then not washing their hands before sitting down at the dinner table! (You can’t see me but I’m gagging even as I type those words!)
I’ve said it before, in many past posts, and I’ll say it again- you gotta love kids, right? I’m thankful that mine balance out the grossness with lots of hilarious and tender moments.
