Against the grain. The flushing of the toilet grain.

Alright--please tell me I am not the only mother out there who is constantly going behind her children and....
FLUSHING.THE.TOLIET.

It's like my kids shun flushing. It's taboo or something.

I am all for being green, shrinking your carbon footprint, waste less, reuse more but personally I have to draw the line somewhere. And using that shiny silver handle is that somewhere.

Its driving me bonkers!!
(now to the credit of my children--lately I have been a little stressed, under slept and sluggish, but still!)

Tell me to get over it, tell me it's not that big of a deal. It's a menial task that takes .00047 of a microsecond to complete.

So do tell, do your kids also FIGHT THE FLUSH tooth and nail?

You aren't the only mom. My oldest seems to think it's hell on earth whenever I catch her coming out of the bathroom and tell her to turn her little butt around and try again.

LOL, my daycare kiddos! Its so funny, cause we do work towards limiting our water usage, lowering the thermostat, etc., but man, I want that toilet flushed! I dont mind working a little harder for that little extra cash to pay for the awesomeness of walking in the bathroom to a CLEAN toilet at all times!
