This morning I was prowling round my eldest son’s room, looking yet again for the source of the odd smell. I’d been looking for it for two or three weeks with no luck.

Master Four, who is almost toilet trained, was playing trains with his brother, and piped up: “Mummy, I did a good job! I got all the wee in the hole and didn’t spill any!”

“That’s good,” I said absentmindedly. Hang on. “Do you mean the hole in the toilet?”

“No,” he pointed. “That hole.”

“He wee’d in the heating vent,” big brother confirmed.

I began shouting demented things about germs, breaking the heating system, and toilets.

“I told him it was naughty,” big brother confirmed.

And Master Four just sat there, still pleased as punch and not realising how much trouble he was in.

Toilet training. So much fun.

  • Oh gosh that is quite funny.


  • I’m sorry but I laughed at this. I’m going through the same thing with Miss 2. She thinks it’s very entertaining to sneak the nappy off and leave random deposits. I’m always dodgy on an odour!


  • Oh dear, not fun at all. Hope it hasn’t happened since


  • Hehehe, you can’t get angry about that :D


  • Haha! At least he tried. I’m toilet training my youngest, it’s been a battle but at least she doesn’t have the equipment to pee in a hole so no such situation for me lol


  • My daughter was scared of the toilet. I discovered it wasn’t the toilet she was afraid of but the great big green tree frog living in there the boys hadn’t mentioned.


  • Hahaha this is too funny! Mine unrolled the toilet paper whenever she went


  • this is brilliant, ive read it before but read it again, so funny so true.


  • not the funnest job


  • my daughter was too scared to go to the toilet because of a spider, discovered later she pooped in the shower :/


  • Oh god! After my dog was desexed he needed to spend some time inside to recover. I could smell urine constantly all over the house but couldn’t locate the source because the smell was everywhere. Eventually I discovered he’d peed into the intake vent for our ducted heating, it was located on the floor. When we had the heater on it then blew the smell throughout the house via the outlet vents in the ceiling. So bad.


  • Wait until your toddler can remove the nappy, squat and wee down the drain in your shower floor.


  • Wow. I can’t imagine the small that is going to come from that now. Boys. Only they have such a unique approach to almost everything.


  • Oh no i cant believe he got it in there. Funniest thing ive read


  • that is so funny. The joys of toilet training.
