Anyone who has a man and or boys in the house knows exactly what I’m talking about. Well, its a non-issue in our house. And it hasn’t been a problem for a LOOONG time. “How did you do it?” I hear you ask. Well, I simply stopped asking Damien to put the seat down, and left it up on a permanent basis. No more sitting on a wet seat in the dark, no more sitting on NO seat when I’m in a hurry- I have trained MYSELF to automatically check that it’s down before I sit. Funny enough, when we were chatting about it a little while ago at house church (yes it is a strange topic for house church), it took another guy to point out the logic behind this- I hadn’t thought of it this way, he said “you spend so many years teaching a little boy to lift the seat when he goes for a piddle, then when he’s mastered it you start asking him why it’s up all the time!?” So no more arguments for us- we argue over other things in stead- like not hanging up towels, the permanently untidy state of his bedroom and him using anew glass EVERY. SINGLE.TIME. he pours himself something to drink.
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
