Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do when someone’s gotta go. Even when it’s the parent who’s gotta go.

    Better than a water bottle. Or an empty Big Gulp cup.

    Right?

    I have totally done this. More than once. I think it’s genius, myself, especially on camping trips. :)

      I was pretty awed when she did it on a camping trip in front of me. She had another look on her face other than awe when I made motions to hunker down on the thing myself. I was banned.

    Been there, minus the seemingly convenient travel potty!

    could be worse…. could be looking at the diaper bag going “hmmmm that dosen’t seem like a bad idea”

    Ha! Have potty, will travel! Great! At least you had a remedy! ;)

  7. ha ha. Forget trips. In our house, we only have one bathroom, and it is upstairs. When I’m looking after two twin toddlers downstairs and I have to pee, well, I just sit right down on that lil thing. I remind myself its okay because I’m modeling a desired behavior, just like the potty training books say.

  8. Eep! Flashback alert…

    My parents used to take my sister and I to Florida twice a year (a two day drive from Windsor, Ontario). We folded the back seats down in our van, plugged the sega into the mini tv/vcr combo they plugged into the cigarette lighter, had lots of blankets, and a potty (just in case.)

    The thing is, my sister and I never used the potty, but my mom would crawl back every trip to use it at least twice. The potty is built to fit the bladder of a child, not a mom. Her pee filled up to the top and we were freaked out until the next rest stop that it would spill on us.

    What a hilariously bad memory. Nightmare worthy even.
