Toilet humour – number 1

There’s nothing us Brits like more than a spot of toilet humour. But there’s nothing us parents like less than being driven up the wall by the the frustrations of toilet training. It’s enough to make even the world’s funniest person lose their sense of humour. Anyone who has faced or is facing this situation will know exactly what I mean.

 So a couple of tricks to try and inject some humour back into toilet time – bearing in mind that I only have boys, some of these may be slightly less successful for girls!

Firstly, when it comes to wee time, trick number 1 is to put a cheerio or two in the bowl and see if they can hit them. They will flush away after a few goes, just make sure they don’t try to fish it out and eat it! Another one on a similar vein is to put some food colouring in the bowl and watch it change colour as they wee on it.  A different tactic is to get them to try and guess what colour their wee will be eg if they have been eating beans, we look to see if it’s orange…blackcurrant squash would be purple etc. etc. Naturally it should never be those colours! (but it is a good way to check how well hydrated they are, particularly in hot weather – the paler, the better).

Then you’ve also got wee a hole through the toilet paper, or if your son has an older brother, sword fights are very popular – try and hit the other persons wee – though we do have a very strict ‘in the toilet only’ policy and any misfires result in instant disqualification!

If you’re strong enough to stomach that, keep checking for the inevitable number two, which will be coming soon (ewwww…)
