Sick of changing nappies, sick of wiping bums, sick of cleaning up cat trays.

When did your dc learn to wipe themselves without causing a biohazard? Tell me there is light at the end of this shitty tunnel. DC1 is 3, one less to be toilet butler to would be so nice.

That's very young to be able to wipe themselves properly. In my experience it is closer to between 4 and 5 to do an effective job!

You could get rid of the cats, too

Age 5 I reckon for 90% effective bum wiping.

Age 7 is when * everything * gets so much easier. 6/7 is a pretty golden age.

Definitely get rid of the cats smile

Keep the cats! Get rid of the kids 😂

5 was when I stopped having to help wipe. I'm down to being toilet bulter for one and have another 2.5 years of it ahead. I salute you fellow soldier!

Like others have said, about age 5-6.

I know how you feel I'm so happy mine are both toilet trained.

This is why I won't get a pet, I've had my fill of cleaning up shit.

Honestly, every other day I threaten to get rid of the cat (but I love the evil little furball).

As for the baby who does a stealth poo IMMEDIATELY after nappy change sad

Surely we are far enough along in AI development to have robots that can do these things for me?!

Oh well, at my bathroom is fully tiled I guess
