Potty Dance

 I mean who could say no to this adorable face!?

One of my most embarrassing moments, as a parent, would have to have been when Bigfoot was almost 3 years old.  At the time, we lived in Ruidoso, NM.  It is such a small town there are few places to shop. The choices were WalMart, Walgreens or the Family Dollar (which is where we were when he decided he had to go potty).

He was desperate to go. He was wearing his big boy undies because I was frantic to help him potty train before our new baby arrived in 3 months. He had been doing the "potty dance" through the store for at least 5 minutes! I asked the woman at the checkout if they had a restroom. She replied, with a quick "Only for employees!"

Finally we were finished with our shopping and as we were walking out Bigfoot says to me "Mom, wait". Once outside the store, he pulled down his pants and proceeded to pee all over one of the pillars on the building! All I could do was stand there and laugh! Poor kid, he really did have to potty! I had a talk with him about it, but was very proud he didn’t have an accident.

There really should be public restrooms everywhere!

  1. The woman clearly was not a mother otherwise she would lead you to the closest public restroom!!

    Thank you for linking up!!

  2. Seriously, she could not let a little boy use their bathroom?! He is a resourceful young man, going places he is!!! Love it :)
