Like it wasn’t bad enough growing up sharing a toilet with 2 older brothers, my life continues to be plagued as a mother and wife of flatulence fiends.
FIENDS, I tells ya!
We spend the first couple of years as parents on constant poo monitoring mode.
“Is it runny?”
“Is this yellow colour unusual?”
“Is this the first one for the day?”
Then, we go through the dilemmas of toilet training, which doesn’t need further expansion here as our stomachs (and mental state) have weathered enough during that trying stage of parenting.
But how do you handle it when they pop a fluffy? Particularly the Silent But Deadly’s (SBD’s).
How does so much toxic, pungent gas come out of one tiny bottom?
And how do they manage to carry on with their business like nothing happened?
Strong foul rotten egg smell inundates the room.
Me: Okay, who did a toot toot?
Nunu: Me! (Big satisfied smile)
The smile is sinister. His poop gas punishes my stomach.
For this innocent 4 year old, a stink bomb deserves just as much praise as letting out the big brown sharks in the loo.
Not quite, buddy.
So, I ask him, “Do you need to do a poo poo?”
“No” is the casual reply.
There’s that evil smile again.
And more passing wind.
Okay. I will ‘fess up. My bottom doesn’t emit pleasant smells of lavender or roses either. I like to let one rip as much as my boys.
But, I like to think I leave the SBD’s for the privacy of the toilet. Or under the doona.
Especially when it’s Dutch Oven payback time for Mr Surfer. That’s fair, yes?
You can imagine that scented candles and open windows are mandatory in our flatulence filled home. Not to mention the bathroom products necessary to keep our toilet in (at best) a bearable state.
Bet you’re hanging to come over now!
Harpic is a well-known, reputable brand that’s saved many an Australian toilet from the ugliest of messes and the most potent of odours.
We’ve been trying out the Toilet Hygienic Plus for the main loo and the Toilet Dual Action Block for the second one.
Our toilets have never smelt so civil and fragrant!
For all the times when the boys (including the big one) miss, there are the Toilet Wipes.
And boys being boys. They ALWAYS miss.
I have one of each of these products to give away to one lucky reader who could use some extra help for their toilet situation.
