Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Nothing like a shit show to start a Monday!


Why is it that whenever you REALLY need to get something done by a certain time everything turns to shit?

This was the case for me this morning – literally.

I was frantically trying to smash out some work on the computer so I let the kids run free range, first mistake.

Most mums know they’re in for a big clean up if they leave their pre-schoolers to their own devices for a reasonable amount of time.

But when I heard No.2 scream I knew something was up – it wasn’t really a pain cry, more of a scared one.

I ran down the hallway to find a nude toddler dripping wet in something (which I later realised was wee).

(Just as an aside there must be something seriously wrong with my search engine – because this is a photo that came up under the search – toddler dripping wet!)


Seriously WTF – but hey who am I to complain, so I thought I’d post it anyhow, mmm David.

I mean this is probably something us mums need to look at, sort of like therapy, after having to spend a large part of our day cleaning up shit!

So anyway back to the shit show.

I arrived in the toilet to find No.3 skidding around on the floor amongst wee and poo, I mean he was covered in the stuff.

Meanwhile No.2 was shrieking in fear because he was also wearing nothing but turds and whey.

I think what happened was my newly toilet trained boy had accidentally done a wee on the floor in the toilet, but then managed to do a No.2 in the appropriate place.

However, upon leaving the throne to wipe his butt he skidded in his whiz and fell hard into a pile of wee and poo. NOICE.

It was then the ever inquisitive No.3 arrived on the scene to inspect what was going on.

Immediately he tripped up and was also covered in whiz and poo but didn’t seem worried, probably because he’s used to playing in toilet bowls.

Not that I let him, but he seems to sense whenever a toilet door is left open, and races in there with anything that resembles a stick to stir the water.

If there’s nothing nearby he’ll use his hands – yip he’s one of those boys – a shit stirrer you might say.

But hey it’s nothing a shower and a strong coffee couldn’t fix, because it was too early for a wine and definitely not 5 o’clock somewhere.

I put it down to being ”just another Manic Monday – whoa whoa – wish it were a Sunday – whoa whoa” (man I used to love the Bangles).

The week can only get better right?


Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. OMG what a start to the week. Hope it gets better…x

  2. OMG thats AWESOME!!! I too have a toilet player, EW, but touch wood, we havent had a morning quite like that yet. Better luck next Monday 🙂

    • I’m glad there’s others out there like me! My next biggest beef is the unravelling of an ENTIRE toilet roll, and I buy those double-sized rolls so it’s even more of a nightmare! Fingers crossed for a Mellow Monday 🙂

  3. I have just laughed so hard – that could’ve been my children not so long ago. I hope you did have a wine at 5pm and that the day got better!

    Thanks for linking up with #TUST

  4. Holy hell I am so glad that my 3.5yo thinks poo is gross and does not need to be touched in anyway lol!

  5. That’s so funny! My little bub is 14 months and I’ve left him without his nappy on for a few minutes and he’s pooed on the floor but this is another level! I hope your week got better? Lovely pic of Beckham btw 😉 Visiting from #TUST

    • Yes isn’t Beckham a hot bit of gear! I usually don’t let my youngest without a nappy until after he’s just dropped a big one!!! Thanks for visiting. BTW – I LOVE your fashion tips, I hope one day I can get my ‘fashion sense’ back 🙂

  6. Oh my 🙂 My son is fully trained, thank God! But he’s not able to wipe his own just yet. He yells Mummy or Daddy once he’s ready. But if we take too long to respond he jumps off the toilet to come and find us. And you know when he’s had a messy one it’s just not cool for him to walk across the house dirty!!! Thank God for tiles and lino and the main areas! #TUST

    • I know what you mean Rhonda, thank goodness we have tiles also. About 6 times a day, from my 2 toilet trained kids, I get MUUUMMMM, can you wipe my bottom, but I’m in the process of getting them to sort their own shit out 😉 x

  7. Change the clocks and make it time for a drink….

  8. I’m so sorry you had to survive this……but it made for really freaking funny reading 🙂

  9. oh dear Em , not envying you at all you poor thing – Yes it can only get better and I hope it did 🙂
    Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday xx

  10. Hate poo, but “shit stirrer”, love it!

  11. Dear, oh dear! That is a story you’ll have to tell at 18th or 12st birthday parties surely 🙂 Hope the week improved!

  12. Hilarious, but I suppose not at the time. I would have run the bath, chucked them in and most definitely inhaled a glass of chardy 🙂 Always the bloody way when you’re trying to get something done 😉
