Things That Children May Pee In

I have to open this post by saying that I absolutely LOVE my job. I work in special education, and the children I work with really do bring joy to my life.

With that said, some days are days where you have to either laugh or cry. Yesterday was one of those days, and I chose to laugh. One of the many events that took place yesterday inspired this post.

Here are some things, that I know first hand, that children may pee in.

This one I credit to boys being boys.

This one makes sense but doesn't at the same time. It is in the bathroom, but come one, the toilet is so close!

This is the pot that we cook pretend meals in. The pretend soup has been forever tainted.

In defense of the child who peed in the pot (previous picture), it was located here. Hey, I guess the kid was just making himself at home.

I think this one is the funniest, but maybe because it happened to a friend of mine and not me.

And last but not least, we all thought it was so cute when one of the students sat on this therapy tube and said "toilet". We thought it was so creative for him to use his imagination that way, as many autistic children are literal to the core. It wasn't so cute a couple days later when one of the other students, who heard it called "toilet", did take it literally.

So there you go, you have been warned.
