We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
Oh my ~ I so don’t want one of those at my house!
Very nice work……Now they know how to clean their own potty!One more thing you can cross off your list!Not only are you the best mommy, you are the smartest mommy.
Too funny! Cause and effect. Where was that kit when my boys were 3 and 7? Oh yeah, that was before DNA evidence, ha!
Come visit me the first weekend of May…. we have a TOWN WIDE garage sale, and community bbq.. it’s the bomb!
k, don’t hate me.
ha ha ha ha ha, I’m rolling on the floor laughing. I love CSI but would never allow them in my house, lol. That is just funny. But on the up side they’ve learned how to clean the potty, lol.
by the way, I like garage sales and thrift stores too – especially when I score stuff for cheap
LOL!! too funny.. lets hope that the doll didn’t get the light! That light would only re-ignite my already borderline Germaphobia!
My house would glow from top to bottom!
I love second-hand bargains too! I bought my wedding dress for $70 from an ‘op shop’. It was lovely thinking of the history that might have been…
Great way to get the kids to clean the bathroom! I don’t know if I’d want one of those shining around in my bathroom…but it does sound like I fun game.
If someone bought my kids that kit a REAL crime would be committed and I would be doing the crime. I am sure my bathroom has those very same markings on the wall… Yuck! But thats the beauty of life with boys, Remember snips and snails and puppy dog tails as well as pee pee.
I need one of those!! 4 boys and they all consider aiming optional! If they could see the pee maybe I could get them to actually clean it up! Great story.
Yeah… I think you ought to put that game in your next garage sale! At the very least, you should seriously consider “losing” it.
Whatever you do… don’t ever bring that game to my house. Or any hotel room for that matter. I always wonder what’s lurking around in a hotel room.

Take the fingerprint powder away from kids. The field kit and the fingerprint kit were pulled from the shelves due to asbestos contamination. The rest of the kit should be fine. The light is the important part anyway, right. Clean bathrooms!
Found this out when I was searching for where I can buy the kit.
Oh I LOVE it!!! With two smaller boys (5 1/2), the pee thing is a MAJOR problem! Smart thinking to get THEM to clean it! LOL! Love it! I need that kit…
Oh and I enjoy thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets – love them all! Someone’s junk could be my treasure!
My son has one of those kits, and it made me see all kinds of things!! Not fun at all. I spent three days scrubbing walls and floors after that toy came into our house.
I heart garage sales too. The season is coming quick, and I can’t wait!! My kids clothes are 90% from sales, and they don’t care. I get the best deals. My favorite is the neighborhood sales. We have one that is over 300 houses…yes 300!! I have to prep for that one. Oh such fun!!
I think it would be worth the original price of the kit to get my kids to cleand their own bathroom…you know, to sanitary standards!
Oooh. My home would be a blinking neon sign. Yikes!
note to self: never buy one of those. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. LOL
Thats why its just better not to know!
Ok, so I wanted to get one of those things for my daughter who loves, loves, loves CSI. After that I think I opt out of getting that for her. I have enough trouble keeping things clean without her finding stuff I can’t even see.
If it’s not urine, it’s fecal matter. We’re surrounded by filth everywhere!!
LOL – that is too funny. I need one of those lights to show my 8 year old that he really does miss the toilet 9 out of 10 times.
Mkay, I WANT THAT KIT! I KNOW it would completely gross me out, but it’s so totally cool and disturbing all at once — who could resist that combo?? I’d be scouring the house for DAYS. Which I guess would NOT be so cool.
I think the fact that you made them clean the bathroom just adds to why you are the best mommy ever.
Cute story, thanks for the Monday morning laugh!
I heart garage sales, 2nd hand stores and finding awesome bargains too. I so want one of those kits for around here, how fun.
I do NOT want one of those kits. I have enough trouble keeping up with the stuff I CAN see LOL!
How ’bout a kit that would make the kids want to clean up their ROOMS?
I can dream, can’t I?
Hmmm…is it too late to undo potty training and go back to diapers? LOL
Uhm..yeah..I can see why that was offer to sale..think the mommy had one too many breakdowns after being re-investigated after cleaning?? LOL
oh…you handled that like a CHAMP! A true champion mom! I bow to your skills…..and take notes.
Hmmmm….don’t NEED one of those around here..the NOSE knows…I swear the boys around here, young and old…would send that thing OFF THE CHARTS with the misses in the bathroom….really..Next neighborhood garage sale…I’ll make a mental note…no CSI kits!
just plain FUNNEEEEEEEE!but hey, the bathroom is CLEAN…**Sparkly** clean…on second thought…I NEED one of those…I think I’ll just leave it on the back of the toilet…let VISITORS even give it a try!!hmmmm…:)
You are too funny! I need to get ready for my garage sale soon.
That is hilarious!!!!
That is too funny! I would be afraid, very afraid, to bring one of those in my house!
TAG! You’re it!! You’ve been tagged by the Apron Queen. Pop on over to here for more info.
That just reminds me of those 20/20 investigative reports where they shine the light on your sink, kitchen sponge and fridge door and all kinds of nasties show up.
Also, I have a pee thing, so I don’t think I could take seeing it so illuminated. I’m already cleaning stray splatter several times a day.
I will remember to stay away from any CSI kits at garage sales! And don’t bring that to my house, your kids would have a lot of data to search! I will live in denial. I have to or I will go crazy.
Man I love the stuff your blogs are made up of!!!
I LUV me some garage sales…there is nothing like getting a smoking good deal, huh??
I’ll tell ya what the crime is here – bad aim!! You should be puttin’ those kids in potty jail! LOL!!
I am a garage sale fanatic too. LOVE THEM!
Yet another thing my kids WILL NOT be getting anytime soon…the Little Imp is bossy enough as it is. I can just hear all sorts of interesting commentary from her with a CSI kit. It would especially be encouraged by her Grandpa who is a sheriff!!!
I had to laugh though as I read your kids’ comments, it reminded me of those two little British ladies from the show; “How Clean Is Your House.”
On the garage sale note….I CANNOT wait for Memorial Day weekend….we should all be plenty thawed out by then, here in Maine, to have some wicked-great sales!
Aren’t you the clever mommy! You handled that so well! I think I want one of those kits. I’m so anal about my house. I really need to know where I need to clean more! LOL
“Decor prohbation”. ROFL!!!!!
I hope no one brings one of those things to my house right now. I think I would cry.
Honey. Listen to me. Listen. Very. Carefully.
Don’t ever, ever, EVER take that light thing to a hotel with you.
You won’t get a wink of the sleep you paid good money for.
I’d have just turned the light on left it at that.
“Pee stains on the wall? I don’t see them.”
And locked the door on it until my house cleaner came on Friday.
OMGosh…that is hysterical. We should be neighbors. I mean it. Really I do. I am ROTL right now…my kids are running up the stairs at break neck speed to see what I am howling about. They thought I was crying. I was laughing so hard I started choking.
Awesome find, but Oh My Gosh, it actually shows that stuff? Ew. But I s’pose it IS good for when you want to see how well they cleaned. Or you cleaned. Or hubby cleaned. Or maybe you should just “lose” that part of the kit and go on in ignorant bliss…
I would throw up if I used that in my kids bathroom. My son has NO aim.
That is so funny! Keep that kit away from my house, please! There is not telling what will be found ’round these parts!
I’m sure the same “bodily fluids” would be glowing in my house too. Ewww…
I hope to never have one of those lights at my house. I’d rather not know.
That would NEVER happen in my house…just kidding. It is probably Ben’s pee-pee all over your bathroom. He leaves a messy trail wherever he goes.
Sitters. Gotta make those boys be sitters… ;0) (whoamI kidding… they STILL miss even when they sit!)
Great post – I’m enjoying your blog… Makes my own life seem more “funny” (maybe?)
Bless you and yours!
I remember using floating cheerios on the toilet bowl, and telling my son to sink them by aiming at them! HA! It worked, for a while, until it wasn’t fun anymore…
LOL…this is hysterical!
GREAT POST! I have no desire to see the stuff one of those lights would reveal in my house….sometimes ignorance is bliss!
OMG… I want one of those kits!
That is the last thing I want in my house! With a husband who doesn’t always have the greatest aim, a 2 year old, and 2 cats, I really don’t want to know what’s invisible here!
I LOVE it!! Especially how the kids are oblivious as to how the body fluids got there.
As I tell my kids–mom doesn’t pee all over the floor.
HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH!!!!!! Best. bathroom. post. EVAH.
I would babysit your kids, but they wouldn’t be allowed to take that with them! But hey, count your blessings, at least they didn’t make it to your bedroom….
Oh, that is HYSTERICAL! Funniest thing I’ve read in awhile. Lovely story telling. I’m a thrift shop addict, too so I was loving where the story was going! I’ve handed my young nephews scrub brushes before after they were so cavalier in their aim in my guest bathroom! ~Michele
That’s the funniest thing EVER!! I’m going to tuck that one away-Don’t buy CSI kit!
That is too funny!
Holy cow, this is SUCH a great post!!! I actually saw you under the link-y on 5M4M – so glad I just happened to check it out, cause this entry is so PERFECT for the entry (I think anyway!) Now I’m going to have to take time one of these days & look at all your previous posts – looks like you have too much awesome stuff for me to just now really becoming a fan! Oh, well – at least now that I’m ‘stalking’ you with bloglines, I won’t miss any future posts. Again – just loved this one! Much love to you and yours, take care and God Bless!
PS – Hope you’re feeling much much better, and that the AC got fixed so that you can rest comfortably. My thoughts, love, and prayers with you.
That’s hilarious! I actually laughed out loud on this one!
LOL… I would die! Cute story!!
Way to go, “Grisom”… Super funny post…thanks for sharing!! Have a great day!
lol…great story! I bought a little black light like that a while back to monitor for puppy accidents! Yeah for a great deal!!!
I’m laughing SO hard. My teenager keeps looking at me like I’m crazy.
I just love this blog.
I love thrift stores also. We have a really nice children’s re-sale shop in my town that I go to frequently. At the end of the season the owner has a bag sale… All you can fit in shopping a bag for $5. Your CSI post was hilarious… So glad I don’t have one of those things in my house…
Too funny! I know what NOT to buy for Christmas this year! haha!
I'm sure my kids would find cleaning fun, if they could find the hidden dirt too. What a great idea!
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
