Why Not to Let Your Kids Take a Whiz at the Park
Two weeks ago, before we left to play group at a potty-less park, I asked Maggie, "DO YOU NEED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM?" She didn't. So off we went.
Not 5 minutes into the park playtime, she comes running at me in a cross-legged hobble saying, "Gotta go potty! Gotta go potty!"
So, I did what I thought was bright at the time and took her to pee behind a tree.
Only problem is, today while playing in the backyard she wanted a repeat.
I guess I can't really blame her, dropping your pants in the wild is much faster than the whole wiping, flushing, hand washing and drying routine. Sanitation can be such a bother.
My biggest fear, though, is that I'll find her trying to go in a corner of the living room or in her closet.
