I’m finally revealing why our master bathroom has been smelling SO bad! I’ve teased you for awhile – starting with this post on Sunday.
And then I posted this picture on Facebook yesterday:
You had some great guesses – from dead animals to urine – I’m realizing it could have been much worse than it was!
But no one guessed it…
So – I’ll explain. First of all, that hole is in our master bathroom. The toilet paper holder used to be there until a little helper (most likely Miles) yanked it out of the wall.
It was already broken, and we can’t really trust our kids with toilet paper these days, so we didn’t replace it. (And we’re crazy busy trying to update the rest of our house – you know – the parts that people might actually see? So our master bathroom is about as low on the project list as it can get. )
For about a week, I’d noticed a terrible smell coming from our bathroom. I cleaned the shower, I washed the towels, I scrubbed the toilet, I cleaned the floor – but it still smelled like a bar at 3 am on a weekend.
And then I finally looked in the hole…
Miles loves trash. He has an obsession. So his job whenever I change diapers is to put them in the trash for me. He loves this! And I guess instead of taking them to the trash, he was taking them to the hole in my bathroom.
