Things that make you go EWWWWW!


For years my friend Jessie and I have frequented many a McDonald's, definitely not for the food, but for the kids to have playtime and "McTherapy" as we've begun to call it. Her little monkeys are all in school now and it pretty much is a Hannah and Emma playtime while I chit chat with my best friend. So many memories. Poopy diapers, accidents, salt in strangers cups(good one Molly!), ball pits, slides, and lots of laughter. But yesterday topped them all, 14 years of going to McD's and Emma has left her mark(she has to compete fiercely, she has 6 other siblings to beat)!


At one point during our lunch I noticed the absence of my petite 21 month old Emma. Jessie and I began to glance around the possible hiding places. The horrifying thought crept into my mind, THE BATHROOM! Now the terror in my brain was only for the trapped little babe and her fear because she could not get out. "How long had she been in there?" I thought as I opened the closed door to the playrooms bathroom. Of course those fears quickly left as I glanced down at my naked child playing in the toilet, the TOILET! For the love of Pete! What kind of mother lets her toddler play in a public bathrooms toilet, Naked?(keep those comments to yourself) She was happily splashing, swirling tp around, and proud of the fact that she had thrown her diaper in the trash and had gone potty on the floor. Aah sanitary! Of course I did what any level headed mother would do and.....


took a picture!


The vile thoughts that raced through my mind could not be scrubbed like her sweet little arms were, thoroughly scrubbed, like a surgeons. I can only hope that the toilet had been cleaned recently, like 5 minutes before she decided to pretend play Polly the Plumber.
I'm just racking up those "World's Worst Mother" awards, don't even try to beat me, I'm an unstoppable force!

Oh Becky, That is too priceless...I am so glad you had your head together enough to take a picture because that was history in the making right there...don't worry about the worse mother award I'm sure there is someone out there that can top that...all I could think of was germy gel from head to toe.

Okay, I always forget when certain blogs have music and yours just scared the bajeebees out of me! Then I had to laugh. Although, even at our own home, I think the babe playing in the toilet is just about the grossest thing! He really doesn't seem to care when I explain "people poop and pee in there!". Anyway, if it helps at all, the bathroom doesn't look too bad in the picture!
Thanks for making my day.

If I hadn't ever been to that McDonalds I probably would have thought it wasn't that big of a deal, but you are right. EEEWWWW! I hate it when my kids have to go in there. At least it was only water in the toilet right! I love the picture!

Now that's funny!

I LOVE IT!! I kept giggling and giggling as I read. I have a lot of those moments and I only have four. I admire you for how you juggle so many. I have to agree that is the best I have heard in a long time. And by the looks of it, it doesn't look too dirty.

Lisa said...

GROSS! Might need some shots after that adventure! Glad you got the picture so that you can prove it in the years to come when people think it is too crazy to be true!

Rachel said...

Oooohhhh Emma!!! Look at her face, she was just having too much fun! And I mean way tooooo much...a public toilet? YUK! Double Yuk! I have some public poopy stories (even some from this week), but I think this one tops all the charts!!!

Love the pic, though...definitely a bribe worthy photo! You have a knack for phrasing things just right and it makes for great laughs - thanks for that laugh, and thanks Emma for providing just the right moment, too! ;)

Inga said...

Unbelievable, My stomach is cringing just thinking about that adventure. It is amazing what the little ones can do in just a short amount of time! Congrats on your award!! LOL!

Oh my gosh. I am so sorry but I am laughing here and trying not to gag!! How funny is that? Good thing there is such a thing as soap and hand sanitizer!!

I would absolutely die!!! How could you stop to take a picture!? That's why I have you as a friend so that I can realize that LIFE happens and it's okay to pause for a pic and not OVERRACT!! Oh I would have been horrible in that situation.

OMGoodness.... so funny...(I am sure you weren't thinking so at the time...)

Each day to live....

Finding the little things in the day that make me smile.
