Quadruplet trouble

I though I had taught my kids how to use the potty. I remember going though the steps. I came home and noticed it had been quite in the playroom for a little too long. When up to check on them and there is wet spots all over the carpet. I called my boys over and asked why the carpet was wet. They all said we had an accident. Really you want me to believe every last one of you had an accident. They wanted me to buy this story. I'm waiting for my husband to come home to talk about this right now they are having the clean up their mess. Seriously would you buy this story? Should a punishment be in order for this?

Right now they are having to clean up the mess. They are complaining the whole way. How would you handle this situation as a mother?

How old are they?

They should definitely help clean up. Oh god I can't even imagine. I'm sorry.

Oh they are old enough to know better. I would do some type of punishment for it. Take away tv/movie time for a day or two or something.

I think daddy isn't happy so my boys are going to have a pleasent time talking there way out of this one. My husband might have four little sore bottoms when the night is over. Thy know better and know that's not acceptable behavior.

At that age they should know better, I thought you were talking about 2 year olds or something at first, definitely worth a punishment

And I think bathroom cleaning for 4 days while you sit in doorway would be a good cause and effect consequence as a punishment.
