New Bathroom Cleaning Technique

Imagine my surprise when I walked into the boys' bathroom this afternoon, and found Ian cleaning the toilet stark naked. "What in the world is going on in here?!" I yelped.

"I'm just cleaning the toilet," Ian replied innocently, as he swished the toilet brush around inside the bowl.

"Why are you naked?" I asked, hoping there was a reasonable explanation for this strange phenomenom.

Ian answered calmly, "Mom, I was scrubbing the bathtub and I didn't want to get my clothes wet." He said it so matter of factly, like any mother in her right mind should realize this was perfectly normal behavior.

As I stared in utter disbelief at my 10-year-old's naked bum, Nyah walked by.

"Aaaaah! What are you doing in there, Ian?!!!! Where are your underwear?!"

I'm so glad that I'm not the only person in the family that was caught off guard by the naked bathroom cleaner.

Note to self: Ask Ian to lock himself in the next time he has bathroom cleaning duty.

Note to innocent readers: I thought about including a photo of the new bathroom cleaning technique, but decided against it. You can thank me later!
