Is your bathroom the scariest place in your house? Towels on the floor, pee on the seat, water splashed all over the mirror? I am officially on strike when it comes to bathroom tidiness, no matter what I do it’s always a mess! I’m tired of falling in the toilet at 3:00am, and I can’t stand seeing and smelling a full toilet not flushed. (Is it really that hard to press the flusher?) So I made this little graphic for my kids and husband to follow in order to make a trip to the potty fool proof.
And before all the sanctimonious dads get their tightie-whitie’s in a wad…if you already do this, then bravo! I’m specifically talking to my family who is apparently being raised in a barn. But feel free to share this with yours if you are having the same potty talks!
And speaking of dads…this one rocks! I can’t wait to show his video to my kids to explain how to change the toilet paper roll when it’s empty!
That chart is just SO awesome! I totally need it for both my children AND my hubby!! The pants part made me laugh out loud! SO true! And that video at the end is HILARIOUS!!-Ashley
This is pure perfection!
I agree with all of this except the wipe themselves part (well, I agree with that for husbands!). I always tell Claire to please NOT wipe her own butt, becuase, OMG. Mess! But with my oldest, I am definitely glad he has mastered that skill!
I personally like them to try at least!
This chart is fabulous! Why have I never thought of it before? It has taken us years to get to the point we are in the bathroom and luckily only occasionally now do I enter and there is no toilet paper. Going to watch that video with my kiddos!
Glad it entertained you!
I am so jealous of your graphics making skills!! That chart is awesome!
Ha it’s easy! I think I linked to it in a blogging post…

Haha, this chart is fantastic! We haven’t started potty training adventures here yet, but we will be soon!
glad you liked it!

Awesome PERFECT chart! That video at the end is hilarious!
right? best video ever! Glad you liked the chart!
Haha, I love this! Too funny—you’ve pretty much hit the nail on the head with everything in the graphic.
I shared that video on fb a few weeks ago, it’s awesome isn’t it – that dad nailed it!
I love the thought of a flow chart – no room for error or miscommunication – excellent.
The only thing I’m not fussed about is putting the lid down, it really doesn’t bother me if it stays up. I might add, clean the toilet bowl now and again, especially if you see a deposit stuck to the side in there, the next person (usually me) will appreciate a clean bowl!
Oh my goodness! I want to plaster this all over my bathroom!
Haha, this is great! Thankfully my little one is still too little to use the toilet, and my husband is pretty good about putting the toilet seat down *most* of the time, but I have heard horror stories from other people. Great infographic!
Your potty protocol is the cutest thing ever!
Wished I had it for the dreadful potty training days with my kids.

This is awesome! I grew up with three brothers so we definitely could have used this chart. Boys can be disgusting! I know have a son so I will be informing him of the procedures when he gets old enough.
Like that the chart applies to boys of all ages. Nice touch. LOL
