I do NOT love my 5 year old's attitude. But I DO love my two sparkling clean bathrooms. #childlabor

Apparently this made me "Magical."
It's funny how 'Fed right the eff up with my kid's disgusting attitude and behaviour' can translate into 'Magical' for someone else.
Not that I'm complaining. I will take magical any day of the week.
So as I said, I was fed right the eff up.
After sending him to his room, I went to the loo.
And I literally thought, "This boy's attitude belongs in this nasty toilet."
After dinner, the boy with the crap attitude cleaned both my bathrooms, top to bottom. He even scrubbed the toilet with a toothbrush.
Yes! He did!
At first he thought it was "Just like Phineas and Ferb when they go to reform school!"
"This is SO COOL, Mama!" he said.
Oh, just you wait, child.
You have only met petite Miss Half-Bath.
Wait until you meet disgusting Mr. Full-Bath. Complete with soap-scummed bathtub.
Kadyn started to lose his groove by the second toilet.
By the time he hit the bathtub, he was done.
"This isn't fun anymore, Mama. I'm getting tired."
"It's not supposed to be fun, Kadyn. It's punishment."
"But I'm getting tired!!"
"Too bad, dude. You're finishing the job."
And he did.
And my bathrooms were SPARKLING.
Ok. Maybe not SPARKLING but he did do a pretty good job!
And he didn't like it.
I sure did.
And it looks like I've found myself a new Loo Cleaner.
Because I didn't want to.
And because it's not my pee all over the toilet and floor.
Still not sure I'm magical.
PS I'm looking for a few guest posters for the second and third week of July. Shoot me a note (rebecca @ manicmama dot com) if you're interested!
