So I was doing Rylee's hair yesterday and noticed that something smelled like pee. I thought it was probably her jacket since just a couple of days earlier Logan had woke up in the middle of the night to go potty, but was totally disoriented and ended up peeing all over the bathroom, including getting it on a basket of clean laundry. So I washed everything, but I thought maybe the washing machine just didn't get all the smell out. So I took off her jacket to wash it and thought that was the end of that.
Then this morning, when I went to do her hair. I smelled it again as I was wetting it down with the spray bottle. So I went and I washed her hair and I couldn't smell it anymore after that.
A little bit later I went to do Chases hair, sprayed his down and I could smell the pee again. I didn't know what to think. I didn't know where this smell was coming from. I thought maybe it might be from the dog that we started letting sleep in the house since it got cold last week. So I washed his hair and I dumped out the water in the water in the squirt bottle thinking maybe it had had gone gone bad somehow or gotten gross from being in there too long. Then I didn't think much more of it.
Then when Ray came home, I was telling him about it and he thought that was pretty weird. He said, " I bet one of them filled the bottle up in the toilet, and it was probably him." (pointing to Chase) Our boys have a tendency of forgetting to flush after they've gone potty, and they also constantly leave the lid up, so it was no stretch of the imagination that this could happen.
Then I remembered back a couple of days ago Chase had come out of the bathroom with the squirt bottle saying, "Mommy, I filled it up!" I thought it was kind of weird because I hadn't heard the sink turn on, but I just brushed it off and continued with what I was doing.
Then I put two and two together and realized that he had either dipped it in the toilet to fill it up, AFTER he had gone pee, or just peed straight into the bottle! Either way, that's freaking disgusting. The super nasty part is that earlier today, while I was getting ready before doing Rylee's hair and knew about the pee stuff, Chase had been sucking on the spray bottle like all of my kids do quite frequently and drinking the water out of it. I guess it serves him right!
