How Do You

say, "Stop urinating on the floor, point your penis in the toilet." In Amharic?

I'm getting VERY sick of stepping in pee anytime I go to the bathroom. About two minutes ago I went to the bathroom and noticed no pee INSIDE the toilet but quite a bit on the seat, floor, rug and side of the bath. Seriously. And the kids' bathroom smells like urine. Its been 4 days and my house smells like urine. Nice.

Any help on this would be great. :) Oh, and if you speak Amharic and can tell me what to say that'd be great; but don't tell me if my tattoo actually says "dumbass" instead of "grace". Thanks in advance.

My boy pees everywhere but the toilet too AND also has grabbed a urinal cake. They must be soulmates!
The worst pee was when his room stunk, we found rotten grapes under his bed (he said he'd eaten them and returned the bowl, we bought it). Thought the grapes were the source, cleaned it up, room STILL stunk. Go to empty the trash and find it 2 inches deep of pee so old it is now green!!!!
Our urinal cake incident was in an O'Charleys. Also involved screaming, scrubbing and laughing til I cried.
By the way, I'm coffeymama from the CHSFS Forum.

Get the toy/game targets from Shinders or on the web. They are paper ships and other targets that you place in the toilet on the water. It makes it a game and fun thing for him to try and get a "hit and sunk". Just google "potty targets".

Or you can use Cheerios for targets. I did that when I was a kid...honestly, I still do it.

I was the mean momma who made my boys sit down until they could aim...one until he was 4 the other until 2 1/2. I have heard great things about giving them something to aim at. Good Luck!

We are going to start trying the cheerios today. Seriously I cannot take any more pee on the knees and shins of my pants.

Cheerios are a good economical solution. However, as a man, there is just something gratifying about battling and sinking an aircraft carrier, battleship or submarine, if you know what I mean.

Quinn says your tattoo says dumbass in maharic.

Funny - my boy freshman students agree, have him pee on cheerios or Fruit Loops in the toilet. One boy said his mom made tissue targets, too.

Here I was frustrated that Marcus wouldn't put the seat up. I guess I should stop my complaining and be thankful he's getting most of it in the toilet!
