Thoughts From Joe
There is lots for a person to think about after they finishing pooping. Here in our household we try to simplify things.
Wipe it up.
Pull it up.
Flush it up.
Wash it up.
Traditionally, Joe forgets to flush it up. I continue to remind him, trying keep him in the rhythm of a routine so it becomes seamless, no thought needed. This morning, Joe had his own idea:
Joe: Mommy, we need a poop detector.
This Mama: What is a poop detector?
Joe: You know, when it knows there is poop in the towyet it BEEPS! Dat way you don't forget to FLUSH IT!
This Mama: Boy, Joe, you ARE a thinker.
Joe: Wait Mommy. I got a NOTHER idea. Da POOP DETECTOR could have a yazer beam to know about da poop, then the towyet can FLUSH ITSELF!
This Mama: speechless.
I would truly like a pee detector. Anytime anyone pees on the outside of the toilet, the floor, the cabinet, perhaps the wall...it would send a gentle shock to said pee-er, just a subtle reminder to WATCH WHERE YOU PEE.
