I haven't dared post about our potty training lately because it is going AWESOME!!!!!! and I am terrified of jinxing that, but today we went on a big outing that actually required being out for a while, which means a
public toilet (shudder, shudder)
had to be quickly located and even worse,
used. (I'm rubbing handsanitizer over my hands for even typing that out....)
Ok, obviously I'm being overly dramatic. But you have to admit that a public restroom toilet is a force to be reckoned with when your newly housebroken three-year-old insists on holding onto the toilet for dear life while doing his business.
What do you moms do about this unsanitary necessity?
I just let him do all the gymnastic maneuvers he had to in order to get the job done- all the while trying not to burst out laughing or barfing- and then I scrubbed those little hands all the way up to his armpits (practically) until kingdom come (or something like that).
What do you do in these scenarios?
Poor oldest children. Their mothers are clueless and makin' it up as they go along.
