Before starting to write this post, I realized that I must have poop on the brain. Or something like that. You ever heard about dinner conversations always ending up talking about bowel movements or sh!t? For some reason in my family, we always seem to head in that direction. Don't ask me why. I really don't have an answer. Call me crazy.
So this last weekend we were forced to purchase a new toilet seat for the kids bathroom. It's been one of those things on the to do list that just hasn't been important enough to do. But one of the kids broke the hinge on the back and one of the cushions on the lid. I guess that's what I get for removing the toilet seat cover and some small person decided to drop the lid down.
The hubs was going to go to Lowe's and pick the seat himself. I told him to take the old seat with him and he said "they're all the same. Why do I need to take it with me?"
Uh yeah. I went with him anyways. So we schleped both kids into the self improvement store to find a new seat.
I was glad we brought the old seat with us, because there are two sizes. Men! (enough said)
I never realized how many decisions go into buying a new toilet seat! Do I want plastic? What brand? What kind of hinge? Chrome or plastic? Slow shutting? Antimicrobial?
It took me 30 minutes to find one. I went with an expensive $31.00 white, with chrome hinged antimicrobial seat. It is supposed to prevent staining. When you have a little boy in the house, preventing staining in the bathroom is important.
Glad I didn't send the hubs alone. He would have brought back the plastic, slow shutting one. As much as the slow shutting is nice (no dropping of lids) , it takes too long to shut. No thanks.
Of course, like a new toy the kids couldn't wait to try it out. Both kids couldn't wait to use it once we had it installed. The moments in life that make us laugh.
