Boy's Bathroom and Girl's Bathroom

We had a little situation today with the bathrooms. No, it wasn't that kind of situation. Little Princess and Little Dude were going to go outside and jump on the trampoline. Princess said to Dude to wait because she needed to go to the bathroom first. So what does Dude do? Yup! He ran to the bathroom before her, closed and locked the door. Such a mean big brother! To his credit he had to go too, but still he could have been a little nicer! Princess sat in the hallway "holding it" and just screaming how MEAN that was of him. I went and tried to convince her to go use the other bathroom before she had an accident, but she chose to cry instead. When dude was done I tried to talk to him about being a little nicer next time. Then I reminded them both that we have two bathrooms for a reason and suggested that next time instead of fighting one of them just needs to go to the other room.

Little Dude thought he was being picked on. So he came up with a solution. A few minutes after this happened he came to me and asked if I would write girls on a piece of paper. I did it and I asked him what he was doing. He never really gave me an answer. Well, a few hours later I went to go use my bathroom and I see a sign on the door that says girls. I walked to the other bathroom and sure enough it had a sign too. He solved the problem I guess.



The story gets better though. We ran some errands tonight and when we got home I needed to use the bathroom. While I was in there I heard Princess crying outside the door and yelling to daddy that mommy needs to hurry up in the girl's bathroom because she needed to go. He told her to go use the other bathroom. SHE REFUSED! There was NO WAY she was going in the boy's bathroom! Poor girl can't win!

love it! Kids just know how to make things simple.. or is it more complicated? I am not sure.

Brilliant, absolutely, positively brilliant!!! What a kid. The question is which bathroom was chosen as the boys bathroom - the more convenient one I'm guessing?

I found some signs on my bathrooms a few days ago. I think my son got the idea from someone... Unfortunately, we now don't have a "girls" bathroom.
