Whenever I go out, by myself, it
1) Bring all three kids with me only to have them TOUCH every disgusting item in a public restroom??
2) Try to maneuver the massive triplet stroller in to the stall??
3) Take the chance of leaving the triplet stroller outside the stall with my three precious children inside, completely unattended?? OR ...
4) Hold it and rush home.
It's a dilemma. It's an even worse dilemma when you've REALLY got to go.
Unless there is an enormously large handicap stall that I can occupy - there are usually no stalls large enough to hold our triplet stroller. Because I never want to leave our children unattended ... my only option is to bring all three kids in to the bathroom with me ... and then furiously scrub them down with Purell and antiseptic wipes.
Although I haven't provided all the details of our potty-training saga ... I will give the teaser that these days ... our children love following me in to the bathroom. They absolutely rejoice in being anywhere close to "The Potty." The love seeing "The Potty" - they love touching "The Potty" - they even love trying to kiss "The Potty." Yes, it's true.
With that in mind ... during my recent internet travels - I stumbled upon this gadget which I think might solve my public restroom dilemma. More than that ... I whole heartedly believe that this one little contraption might simplify my life in more ways than I could ever possibly imagine.
Think of it.
I could go to friend's houses ... I could go to church ... I could go to public restrooms ... I could cook, clean and maybe even take a nap. All the while, my kids would have a great time - just hanging around.
