Nevermind, You can do it.....
I would like to know how other mothers do the following: public restrooms with children. Currently, I force my 4-year-old into the cubicle with me because I have learned that if I don't, she will peek under all the other stalls while I am conducting my business. Recently, she crawled under the stall to visit with the poor, unsuspecting, and, I might add, vulnerable person. Thankfully, it was my sister.
Well, the other day, we were at the craft store restroom and I forced her to go into the handicap stall with me. We use this stall because it is nice and roomy. Well, to occupy herself, she started creating a softball-sized ball of TP. She turned to me and said as she patted my knee, "Don't worry Mommy, I will wipe you!" This comment I found especially ironic since she hasn't found the time or effort to learn how to wipe herself. Thankfully, when it was time for the paperwork, she chickened out and said, "Mommy, you a big woman. You know how to do it yourself...right?" AS IF! I learned how to do that a couple of years ago! Thank you very much! :D
I only have one little rascal to wrestle with in the public restroom, thankfully, Sassy's older sister has finally learned how to control herself in public. How do people do it with more than one? Please share!
She's a cutie...but I still wouldn't want to see her peeking at me under a stall door!
