When the SmartSign blogger challenge popped up on HIBS100 I knew straight away which sign I would be looking for.
We’re moving house next month (in the middle of the summer holidays with no childcare, while working from home – send cake) and so have a sign in mind.
Is it a family rules sign? No!
A “Beware those who dare to enter” for my pre-teen’s new room? No (although this might not be a bad idea)!
Perhaps something with a quote like “Sorry about the mess, my children are making memories”? No, sorry.
What am I looking for?
A miracle. It’s a miracle I’m looking for. You see, I am slightly outnumbered in my house. There is little old me, then are three boys (two boys and a husband).What I’m looking for, is a pee-free bathroom.
This is the look of a mother who is frazzled, worn down and quite frankly worn out…. by boy pee. Parents of boys will feel my pain. I thought that a handy sign would remind my cherubs to WIPE THE DAMN SEAT so I that I wouldn’t have to yell “HAVE YOU WIPED AND FLUSHED?” up the stairs who be a wise choice. I’m pretty sure when I yell right now using my stern Mum voice that our current gentleman neighbour sits down to pee. I’m hoping to make a more refined impression on the new neighbours, at least for a little while until they really get to know us and so I put this sign together…
They’re not going to be able to ignore that looking down on them, are they? We can but hope!
I was quite tickled, on browsing SmartSign closer to find that great minds think alike as they have a similar sprinkle tinkle sign. If I’m chosen as a winner of this fab comp (this post is an entry into the #MyCustomSign www.smartsign.com blogger challenge) I would ask them to make mine up to fit with my decor for the new house or design one similar perhaps without the disapproving dog looking down (see below).
What do you think? It’s a winner, right?
