Mom's Warning to New Moms About Their Future Bathroom

Mom’s Hilarious PSA to New Moms About Their Future Bathroom: “No Amount of Lysol Will Fix This”

Something most moms can agree on is that no matter how much time is actually spent cleaning, no part of the house ever actually feels clean for more than a few seconds . . . especially the dreaded bathroom. Whether you have a baby, toddler, or older kids, there's always something going on in the bathroom that makes you want to either consider hiring a cleaning lady or move out and leave your family to fend for their own messy selves. Amy Weatherly knows what it feels like to have an ever-dirty bathroom, so in support of new moms and soon-to-be moms, she wrote a hilarious PSA warning them about the future state of their bathrooms.

"Dear Soon-to-be-moms, walk into your bathroom. Take a look at the toilet seat. Notice how the toilet paper roll is not empty, or rolled everywhere, or in wads in a basket on the floor somewhere. Delight in the fact that the toilet has, indeed, been flushed. No urine on the floor? On the wall? Revel in that for a moment," she wrote. "Breathe in a whiff of fresh air, because pretty soon that thing is going to be covered in pee and no matter what you do, it's going to smell like butt. There is no amount of Lysol that will fix this."

Amy notes that she's not sharing this with future moms to scare them — she's telling them because she's their friend and wants them to fully enjoy their clean bathroom while they have it, because pretty soon, they won't be able to remember what that ever looked like. "Kids are a blessing from God himself, but they are full-on disgusting, and they don't give a rip about hygiene or proper protocol. Poop does not scare them. Pee does not alarm them. Nothing does, except you trying to brush their hair, or make them put on pants," she wrote. "And the toothpaste. My gosh. The toothpaste. Just globs of it on the counter, in the sink. It ain't right I tell you. It ain't right. . . The smell will only get stronger as they get older, BUT SO WILL YOU, SISTER. SO WILL YOU."

And while we're on the topic of enjoying clean things while we have them, Amy suggests: "Also, enjoy your car the way it is now and get comfortable using the word 'boogers.' You'll see what I mean."

Ominous? Yes. Valid? Absolutely.
