Tight Quarters

Have you ever thought to yourself that you'd really like a bigger house, or yard, or bathroom?

Well, I have to admit we have a nice big yard. But I could definitely a handle a bigger house. Just under 1000 square feet is bit squishy for 5 people, especially when 3 of them a VERY active young boys. But the one thing I really feel like we NEED is another bathroom, or a bigger bathroom OR maybe both.

But today I got some confirmation that this is not just some wishful desire, but really need. I was giving Bryan a bath. I reached up and got the shampoo from the shelf inside the tub and when I pulled back I quickly realized that Timmy had joined us in the bathroom. He'd popped in, opened the toilet and was using it. This wouldn't have been so bad, except for HOW I came to this realization. Actually, my elbow realized it first as it went right THROUGH the stream that was flowing. I thought, "What the..." for just a split second before I knew exactly "what the..." was going on.
So what do you think? Don't you think I need a bigger bathroom? I am really not a fan of being peed on! I'm all for family closeness, but really, this is just too much!



  1. Yep, definitely think a bigger bathroom is in order. Submit that story to Extreme Makeover Home Edition, and see what happens!!

  2. Oh my gosh! I don't know how you are making it in a 1000 square foot house! My house was 1000 square feet when I just had the two boys and they were REALLY little and I felt so cramped! Now I have about a 1500 square foot house and still think that's pretty small, but thankfully there are 2 bathrooms.

    If you have such a big backyard, maybe you should consider puttin in an outhouse. They are boys, so I doubt they'd mind! :)

  3. Oh Miss Lisa, I really wish I could say I hadn't laughed (hysterically even) but I know what you mean! One day, one day ...
