Haha. My son is scared of our powerful toilet too. And my son likes to talk during the shows on tv and state the obvious. I usually tell him, " Will you stop please?". He also likes to ask a million questions.

I think it's a male thing with the toilet .

Toilet's way up there. Youngest also routinely wears the same underwear for several days in a row. In resonse, we have instituted daily underwear checks. Yes, really. He also talks...a lot. Oldest refuses to use the trash can in her room and leaves wrappers and other bits of detritus literally right next to it on the floor. She's also the one who stuffs her dirty laundry under her bed, hidden from view, and then complains bitterly that she has nothing clean to wear. Well, duh!

DS never flushes here, either. Both will leave trash, dirty plates, etc lying around forever. DD wears 5 outfits a day and puts them all in the laundry, and even puts in clothes that were clean but in her "to be put away" pile, but since she never put them away, she "forgot if they were clean or dirty." She does her own laundry now -- that's teaching her what a pain in the butt it is to wash all that stuff unnecessarily.

ODS pees on the toilet seat.

YDS clogs toilet with a ton of TP.

ODS antagonizes and alternately ignores YDS.

YDS beats up ODS.

Those are the biggies right now.

DD leaves clothes all over her room then when she realizes she needs something, she puts them all in the laundry room and tells me I need to do clothes that night!

Also, have to 'remind' her every day to brush her teeth.

Oh, where do I start. My son is a teen-ager now with lots of moody days. Let's see, he uses up ALL the hot water when he takes a shower. He uses at least 4 towels a day (he's a swimmer); he leaves the electric toothbrush all over the house . . . . leaves his hair dryer plugged into the bathroom sink; never turns off his ceiling fan ever .. .

Sometimes, he acts like I am the dumbest person on the face of the earth and definitely thinks the whole house (wait ~ the whole WORLD) revolves around him.

My lovely daughter talks constantly Sometimes she will make these noises, just to make noise and it irritates the heck out of me

I will be reading the news and she will just start talking to me, or say, "mom, mom, mom" and I'm like can't you see I'm busy, can't it wait a moment.

well, my kids are younger.

right now, yds is driving me nuts because he believes 5-530am is an appropriate wake up time.

ods now insists on sleeping with a small container of black playdough

ods stands on the sofa even though i've told him 25 times today not to

...they are 20 months and 3 years old.
