This poor mom

Let’s get one thing straight right now — kids are disgusting. They’re unbelievably gross. Every time we think there’s no possible way kids can get grosser, they innovate and evolve, repulsing us anew with something even more terrible than whatever they did before.

Like what this poor mom found in a nightstand drawer in her toddler son’s bedroom.

Phoebe Bartlett of Bournemouth, England is 21 and has a three-year-old brother, Freddie. Little Freddie found himself in a spot of trouble yesterday when his mom made a rather unsavory discovery. Bartlett decided to tweet photo evidence of the toddler’s misdeed, and it went viral overnight.

Because, OMG.

Bartlett writes, “Mum has just found a draw full off piss that my 3 year old brother has been pissing in and he blamed the dog HAHA!!!”

Haha indeed. But first, VOMIT. Before any parent can laugh at this, they have to feel for this poor mom. Imagine opening a drawer in your child’s bedroom and your eyes lighting on a good week’s worth of piss. Once the initial wave of revulsion passes, you will laugh. Because holy shit, this is hilarious.

Bartlett tells Scary Mommy all the dirty details. “What happened was, Mum could smell wee in her room for about a week but couldn’t find a patch from the dog, so she asked my brother if the wee was in his room and he said yes, and then he opened the drawer and she screamed.”

Uh, yeah. We can’t say we blame her there.

“She said, ‘Did you do this?’ and he then said he did.” And that’s when Bartlett’s mom called her into the room where she promptly snapped a photo and made her baby brother go viral for having his very own piss drawer.

A fact that Twitter simply can’t get enough of.

They’re also impressed with the tiny lad’s ingenuity.

And some were just plain grossed out.

While others pointed out what a boon this is for the dog.

This entire story basically serves as a parenting cautionary tale — have kids and expect absolutely anything. Up to and including a drawer full of urine.
