A Perfectly Natural Thing to Do

Find this "child's favorite chair" here.

While out and about today, I saw something funny.
And I think you will get a chuckle out of it, too.

After shopping at a deptarment store that sells chocolate milk, yet-not the dreaded WM, I was unloading the new supplies in the back of my vehicle and as habit has it, I was surveying the area.
(I like to know what's going on around me.)

A row over, with it's open hatch facing me, was parked a mini SUV.
A little girl, probably 4 or 5 was standing inside the back. She pulled down her bottoms and sat on something.
Quickly, I looked away.
And giggled.
Because, I haven't a qualm about public restrooms, but baring it all in public is truly a brave concept to me.
That child will probably never have stage fright.

And then I thought about the consequences of having a full potty in the back of my vehicle with all my new supplies.
Eww, yuck.
But then I found this:

Find a portapotty here.

I hope they had one of these.

And then. because I found this very funny, you must see:

Find the Peter Potty here. 

Today I am thankful that my children will use public restrooms or trees.
That is all.

(Except this--If you'd like to read about toilet training at our house, click here. It's long & not so funny, but there is a funny picture at the top and it works.)


  1. I have a friend who did this with her kids in case they were caught somewhere without a potty. They, however, closed the back of the van first! We like to go for long drives and sometimes find ourselves in the middle of nowhere when the need arises. We've discussed a trailer hitch potty, yes they have them, but for now we use Travel John Jr's. Check them out. In a family with 4 daughters being creative with potty options is a must!

  2. A step up from what my boys do should the need arise. They just get an empty cup.

    I am such a horrible mother!

  4. Oh my goodness, travel john jrs & cups--
    I don't think I could use those--
    how funny.
    I wonder if my kids would?


  6. Lissa, lol! Tom and I laughed so hard when we first saw them. We actually bought a few to use as "White Elephant" gifts. Now we use them for real! Anyway, just thought I'd mention they are great for a 72 hour kit!


So glad you've come to visit!
I'd love to hear {read};) your thoughts!

Again, I haven't written in a while, but I don't want to forget this one. It's a doozy. I work in an elementary school. I teach ...
