Bad Baby tale #782

Oh y'all.
I need a break.
A serious break.
If you follow me on twitter, you may already know why.



When we got home from vacation, the house had a smell to it.
Not a musty-been-closed-for-10-days kind of smell.
A urine smell.
Gross!

We thought one of the dogs must've pottied in the house before we left and we didn't find it.

Since then we've had baking, cooking, fans on, air fresheners plugged in and just regular life going on and the smell seemed to have gone away.

Then I was emailing and I heard water pouring behind me.
I spun around in my chair and saw The Baby peeing in the air vent.
Yeah, really.
He pees in the air vents, people!!!!
That is so wrong on so many levels!



How long has this been going on?!
Where in the world did he learn this?!
Is there a way to clean air vents?
Now I'm not sure if we can ever move, because who would buy the house?!
You know that whole "God won't give you more than you can handle" thing?
Ummmm, yeah. I can't handle this boy very well.
It's official. He's the naughtiest kid in the world.

My Life is Funny.

Oh, it could be worse. I have a friend whose son paints everything he can get his hands on with poop. Daily. See? I'm a little ray of sunshine for you. :o)

And again, you're welcome to come up and visit! I don't have any pee in my air vents.

I love bad baby.

Living With Lindsay said...

Oh, sweetie. How crazy! Where do these boys come up with these things?

Our air vents are in our ceilings, so you are welcome to send him my way for a while. LOL

forever folding laundry said...

Seriously!?! Oh my. What a boy thing to do, huh? Surely he'll grow out out of this fun stage quickly, right? Hang in there!

Casey said...

Oh no!! At least he has pretty good aim right??

Beki I am so glad I'm not the only one with a bad baby. My 2 little ones are always up to no good but I think your little one has them beat!

I hope you find a way to get the vents cleaned. That will be an interesting call to make. :)

BlackCatMima / Tobelina said...

Oh NOOOO! I'm laughing and going EWWWW all at once. LOL!

Uhh - you can have air vents and ducts cleaned for DUST. I don't about about piddle puddles in there though. You'll need a huge, giant Q-tip type thing soaked in bleach to clean in there now!

LOL - still laughing and cringing. Good luck!

inkOBSESSIONdesigns said...

Oh no! That definitely sounds like a boy thing to do.

Land of Lovings said...

LOL! That is hilarious! (And I'm sure maddening for you.) Is this what I have to look forward to with my new baby boy?

At least it made for a great blog post! : )

Lovely said...

OM gosh! LOL. I'm sorry I shouldn't laugh. What I should do is get your prize out to you NOW, huh? That'll make you feel better. (This is my way of apologizing for NOT getting it out to you this week.)

Let this be a lesson to other would be moms out there -- have GIRL babies. Then, you don't have to worry about anything ... until puberty ;)

kraftykash said...

Oh no! Im glad you are handling this so well. This story made my day. I know that does not help yours any. :o)

Sara said...

hee hee :)
Thank you for this!
I posted my naughty post a few weeks ago...but, even my Molly can't beat this entry!

Polka Dot Moon said...

Oh BOY! I have not one idea on how to clean vents! I could be worse like Wendy commented!

Hang in there!!!

Jenny said...

LOL! SO funny...and gross at the same time. =) I'm glad someone else has little boys that also do bad things. Mine keep me on my toes all day everyday! Good luck getting the ducts cleaned out!

Southern Traditions Boutique said...

OMG Beki! Me too, I was laughing and grossing out at the same time!!! I'm SOOOO glad all of mine are past the "bad" stage....now were just into the "mouthy" stage. Don't know which one is worse!

Good luck with the vents....I think there are several companies that could come clean them for you! Let us know whatcha find out.

blessedmomto7 said...

UM...Darn BABY! I think you can get someone to clean em! UGH!

rentz said...

I feel like I need to apologize to you for laughing out loud when I read your post...even though you didn't hear it. And then, all I can say is, WOW!

Whitni Ann said...

haha, this reminded me of my littlest brother. When he was born and growing we were slowly remodeling our house. Well, right when he started potty training we starting redoing one of our bathrooms. The bathroom had a hole in the floor where the vent was it was just attached to some duct work. (Long story.) Anyway, after about a week we realized he had not been peeing in the potty, he was peeing in the hole in the floor. FUUUNNN times. Good luck with your naughty baby!

Eva's House said...

Don't worry, all the kids have a naughty period, and we, their parents, we had it too! You will find a way to resolve it , and then you will laugh it !

Elizabeth said...

Would some of those Pet Odor remover liquids stuff work? Check at a Petsmart for some.

At least you have something to tell his girlfriends when Bad Baby is dating...or use as blackmail for later!

Otherwise, I'm laughing and feeling sorry for you at the same time.

jellybelly*jellybrain said...

Ewwww. I thought for one tiny moment there that there was going to be a photo of him doing it.

I once knew a boy who peed in the dog's food bowl - at least no lives are at stake in your house

bekimarie said...

OMG! I just nearly peed my pants laughing.........sorry!
Certainly a subject to bring up when he's older lol!
((hugs))

Chele said...

Oh my girl! I did see your Twitter update. I was praying for you all day. I would be just as upset but I'm sure unconditional love covers his little rear! LOL. Oh now I have something to share but you'll have to look on my blog next week. My kids were bad like that too, not what yours has done but you'll have a laugh!! Boys, I'm telling ya, boys!! Try to have a good weekend!

Ruth said...

Oh no!! Bad, bad baby.

Trasie Bressler said...

That is just freaking hilarious! I needed a good laugh and this has certainly done it. :)

I hope you have a great day!

HeatherScent said...

You need this:
http://www.urineoff.com/

It's the only thing that really removes the urine crystals.

At least it's only kid pee, which smells a million times better than cat pee.

shan said...

Thanks for a much needed laugh! On a side note, at least he's not going in his pants right?

Brenda said...

I'm so sorry, I read your post with a snicker. I know it's easy for me to find it something to snicker at because it's not happening to me. At least now you know the problem and you can start working on him knowing it's wrong. It WILL be something you will snicker at too some day. Ok, maybe many many many years from now.....just wait till your daughter turns 16 and this stuff will seem like small beans. My daughter has me at the end of my rope on a daily basis and she thinks it's funny.
How could a little boy with a face so sweet like that be doing that? :)

Robynn's Ravings said...

Oh, Beki! Thanks for perspective this morning!!!!! Where do they come up with these ideas?! It truly IS a boy thing. I know girls do some crazy things but not in nearly the amazing proportions! Things that seem perfectly logical to the male mind will never cease to amaze - and entertain - me. But then, I have a "pee" sized brain!

Julie said...

I can so relate to your post!!! Having four boys, life is never dull and they definitely think they can whip out the "shooter" and shoot at anything . . . the floor, the stairs, the brothers, stuffed animals - yes, BOYS ARE GROSS!!!

artsyclay said...

Oooo, that's truly awful!

My pee story is not as stinky, just embarrassing. When my oldest was around 4 or 5, he took to peeing outside in the bushes next to his dad's greenhouse company (just a walk across the driveway from our house) and we found out later all the ladies in the grading room in the lower area were watching him through the window and dying laughing. Boys!

Taiya said...

Oh, you poor thing!

you can clean the air vents, I am sure. You would have to be able to! Oh, man. Well, I hope you can get a nice break!

nic said...

oh hon, i'm sorry for your pain, but this is quite possibly the funniest thing i've ever read. he is well worth his weight in entertainment. you should keep him. :)

traci said...

oh no beki. kind of a funny story though. you'll laugh about this years from now.

shanae said...

That is to funny!! Very cute kid!!

LuLu said...

HE is adorable! I am laughing so hard! oh no! Kids and the crazy stuff they put us through! It's amazing parents survive parenthood!
good luck with cleaning the air vents! :)

Eileen said...

You need "Anti-Icky Poo". I know if sounds silly, but it works on cat pee. And I need to stop getting mad at my boys for making farting noises in the back seat of the car every day. Maybe that's not that bad.

Anonymous said...

That baby is precious and you stop telling lies on him!
Boys sometimes have to piddle. Whether it is in a vent, or the trash can, I did that once while sleep walking, or even for revenge as you chase your cousins and aunts around the yard.

We must use the power that is within us!

Deidre Mooney said...

Thanks for checking out my wreath and thanks even more for the inspiration! If it is any consolation, my twins poop in the backyard so I am not much help on the pee thing...kids....I wonder where they get their ideas sometimes???

Happy crafting! Your admirer! Deidre M

Spadazzle said...

When can he start preschool? :(

Cristy said...

Hee hee..... I can only laugh because I have all girls. ;)

Debbie said...

You are not alone. My little Broderick who is 3 1/2 is my handful. None of my boys were are difficult as he is. He colors on everything. I know, not as bad as peeing in the vent, but he also likes to play in the cat box. Gross!

I did also have one who used to paint everything with poop too!!

They do eventually get bigger, older and wiser. Let's hope this takes care of the teenage years and they are glowing angels then.

John & Elisa Seaba said...

I'm sorry but i had to laugh...though i probably wouldn't be laughing if my vents were peed in so i'm sorry for laughing :) If it makes you feel any better, Raegan is the naughtiest GIRL in the world right now!

Sew Gracious said...

As I've always said . . . good thing he's cute! ;-)

Jenna said...

I am sorry.. I know he is bad.. but he is SOOOOOOOOO STINKIN CUTE!!

and I know that does not make it any better...

but he is...

I cannot help but wanna give him a squeeze!

You can ship him down to Texas, he can play with the diva- I am sure they will get along fine :)

Laura said...

Wait...we're NOT supposed to pee in air vents?? Who said?

Colleen said...

My inlaws evil cat used to pee in their air vents. They had to have someone come out and clean the vents.
Does he get points for being creative?

Toni :O) said...

There are actually air duct cleaning companies that will come to your house and clean them. I would certainly give them a call. They can deodorize and sanitize all of your vents and the ductwork and it will wipe out that smell. Course, this is AFTER he knows to definitely not do that anymore. Good luck and boys are still blessings...even if they are naughty!

Whimsical Creations said...

OMG!!!! What a little pisser...pardon the pun.

good thing he is cute!

Helen said...

On the bright side, when he is older, you can tell this story to any girl he dates that you don't like, and he'll have to break up with her on the spot from pure humiliation. JACKPOT!

Tiffany said...

Oh my! My friend's little boy (who was definitely old enough to know better) did the same thing. Only it started with an "accident" where he pooped his pants and didn't want to get in trouble, so he dumped it down the vent. Then he decided to start peeing in there as well. It took her awhile to figurre out why his room smelled so bad.

I'm sure there's a way to clean vents, but I'll bet you have to hire someone. She poured a bottle of bleach down hers. And they did sell the house not long after that. Of course this is the same kid that pushed his little sister off a cliff. (Luckily there was a ledge below.) Yes, he's the devil. Maybe I should introduce you two...

Jesse said...

Can I just tell you how much I relate to this post. Except I have that going on time 3, with all of mine so close. I'll say a little prayer for ya.

Graceful Moments said...

Sorry, but this is too funny. I couldn't wait to read it to my husband. I always read the Naughty Baby posts to him.

Ditto on the "good thing he's so cute." He is adorable and you can see the mischief in that little face...like he's thinking, "what fun thing can I do next..."

On the bright side...if you ever want to write a book, you'll have lots of material!

The Homefront said...

Ooooo, noooooo!

My son just ran up and threw himself into my lap, asking "What's oh no, Mommy? What? What?"

He's 3, and I'm not about to tell him about babies piddling in vents...he'll try it for kicks.

Too funny, but not at the same time. I hope you find a way to clean the vents!

(By the way, I'm visiting from Wendy's at Weight...What?)

Angel said...

Oh my! Is this what I have to look forward to with a boy? Because I can barely handle my 4 year old girl who hides her poo in the open air vent in her room(need to reinstall it after replacing the baseboards). She's done that 3 times now. Good grief, who knew kids could be such devious little things.

I love the naughty boy... you can see the mischief in his eyes. I came across your blog tonight and couldn't stop reading it. Your stories and pictures are very entertaining. Good job!
