Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Please try to have a presentable bathroom. A vent.

Posted by   + Show Post
I stay for a day or two with my parents so the baby can see her grandparents and my SO can rest up for hectic weekends at work. I have two sisters who live at home, ages 25 and 13. There's a guest bedroom upstairs where I sleep and after the baby's fed in the morning, I'll use the shower across the hall. As great as a morning shower is, the bathroom is atrocious.

There are clothes all over the floor. It wouldn't bother me if it was one change of clothes (older sister works nights and showers when she comes home in the morning) but we're talking about a week's worth. The towels aren't put back on the drying hooks and are usually piled in with the clothes. All of this gives off a foul odor. The worst part is getting into the shower. There's ALWAYS a huge clump of hair sitting on the faucet. There's always some in the drain and when I go to pull it out, there's a huge trail of hair coming out. It's gross but I won't shower knowing it's there. All of this hasn't been happening for the past couple of weeks since my daughter has been born. It's been an ongoing thing.

Before your panties are bunched, I have taken down the clothes into our laundry room to be washed and have even started washing them when mom isn't home. When she does see me do this, she tells me to take it back up and she'll have my sisters bring it down. Yeah, they don't. I'm almost tempted to clean the entire bathroom because they're told to do it a number of times when we visit and it isn't done.

That's about it for my vent. I only hope you all have cleaner bathrooms than the one I use.

Blech! I hate it when there's a spot on the mirror! That is one room I definitely want to stay clean!

While I agree that a 25-year old needs to be keeping a clean bathroom, this situation is ridiculous.  First of all, your SO needs to "rest up" for work, so you have to remove yourself and baby from the home?  Umm, okay?  If you don't like the way things are done at your parents', you need to stay at YOUR house.  Did you think everyone was going to roll out the red carpet for you because you had a baby?  Obviously the dirty bathroom thing doesn't irritate your parents because they haven't kicked your older sister out or done anything to remedy the situation.  I can pretty much guarantee things aren't going to change.  Your sisters are going to keep trashing the bathroom and doing whatever else they do there because it is THEIR home.  You need to stay at your own if you want things to your liking.

ew, I would be completely embarrassed..I always make sure stuff like that isn't open for others to see. Even in the basement..I always make sure the undergarments (even if they may not go down there) are hidden underneath a shirt or something. I love the laundry baskets for the dirty clothes that I have now. Makes it much easier. haha.

It's amazing how some people can live like pigs. I worked with a girl that would have her dirty underwear laying on her bathroom floor. She never cleaned if she had company.

When I go to my older sister's house I refuse to eat unless it's off an unopened box of paper plates and forks. I would never use her bathroom, EVER! Not unless I want to induce vomitting.

Man, you completely misinterpreted the entire situation. Good job!

I hate nasty bathrooms! I've always disliked them but when I was pregnant with DD I was living with my dad and stepmom. I had morning sickness everyday and there is nothing nastier than leaning over a nasty dirty toilet! I still sometimes randomly get sick even though my youngest is 3 1/2 so I always make sure my toilet is clean.

I'm also with you on the sink. A dirty sink is gross. Seriously I clean mine out everyone I use it. I actually also do this at work. If there is something in the sink I will clean out the sink or it will bug me until I do. And it has to be cleaned out right there can't be smudges of stuff or anything like that.

And I almost didn't log onto CafeMom tonight!  Boy did your post ever hit home today!  Although it wasn't my bathroom, it was my bedroom.  And, although it wasn't nasty, it was cluttered with clean clothes that hadn't been put away. 

In the middle of the night my hubby stopped breathing and had a cardiac episode and passed out, falling onto the bed and onto me....I thought he was dead.  I called 911, and within 10 minutes there were 8 police, fire rescue and paramedic personnel in my clothes-cluttered bedroom.  It didn't bother me at the time, but I was mortified later when I thought about it.  I decided that I needed to at least keep things presentable because you never know what the night will bring....
