FINALLY, we decided it might help to put one of the girls in the room with him. Trying to decide which child was a chore, but we finally settled on KK. She's pretty easy going, and gets along really well with Bubby. She was DELIGHTED to get her own bed(her bunk bed taken off the top). It's helped out a LOT with bedtime and Bubby isn't getting up anymore, which is great.
Naptime is usually really smooth. Everyone goes to bed on their own and sleeps quickly. The last few days, however, Bubby has started getting up at naptime. Of course. See, I put all the kids in different rooms at naptime to get the most out of naptime. Several of the older kids only take a short nap, so removing them from the younger kids allows the younger ones to sleep longer and gives the older ones a chance to read or play quietly after they wake up.
SO, fastforward to today. I put all the kids down, and pretty quickly after I had come downstairs Isaiah was up and getting into the bathroom. I disciplined him and put him back in bed. About 10 minutes later I heard Addison(who was in bed in her room) yell out, "MOM! I think Isaiah is going to get in trouble for what he is doing! You need to come. NOW!"
This is what I found.
One of the strangest hardest to clean messes EVER!
I ran to get my camera so that I wouldn't lash out at Bubby. This is what he looked like when I got back in the room. He said, "So sorry momma." in a quiet voice.
I cleaned him up as best I could, took off his wet clothes, put clean ones on him, and put him on his bed while I went to work trying to clean up this CRAZY mess!
This is the wall. It was stained all the way up to my shoulders on the walls on both sides of the toilet.
The rug is stained pretty badly. It might come out with a good washing. We'll soon see. It's in the washer along with about 100 other things that were wet or stained.
These pictures don't do this mess justice. We're talking EVERYTHING in the bathroom was dirty! What is it you ask? My darling son had gotten the bath tabs that we will from time to time put in the bath water to change the color and put all of them into the toilet, then used anything he could find to fish the water out into the floor and the walls.
This is all the water that was left in the toilet. The trash can had about 2 inches of water in it too.
This is the toilet paper after I'd already torn off quite a bit to wipe his face.
After about 30 minutes of cleaning I got most of it cleaned. The toilet is still stained, but I can't stand to use harsh chemicals while I'm pregnant, so Scotty will have to go back in and clean it with bleach or something else later. The stuff I had wasn't touching it!
This is him once I got finished cleaning. He was sound asleep...
Don't worry, that hair dryer isn't plugged in! All the outlets in the bathroom are covered and out of his reach, and he's perfectly safe! While I went to get the camera, I called Olivia up to stay with him to ensure his safety.
