Car Poop Lane

Yesterday I ran to the consignment store in hopes of finding a potty to carry around in my car for potty emergencies and I struck gold since not having to stop and ask a stranger to use their toilet is worth way more than $5.50 in my book. I threw it in the back of the car and didn't realize how useful that little baby was about to be...

I ignored my to do list again today to spend some time with my mom while she is in town. She only lives an hour away, but I feel like I hardly see her since she only comes to Wasilla for work, then usually heads straight home. We packed the kids into her car since my van is currently a bit under the weather and decided to hit some garage sales.

We followed endless signs leading to nowhere, drove by a few sales that weren't worth getting out for, and walked around a few sales that looked promising but led to no purchases. After almost an hour we finally caught a sale that has a few interesting items including a new backpack for little man, some 'new' VHS tapes, and a few items for my mom. As we were walking out of the sale Boo started the MJ crotch grab and I knew it was potty time.

I potty trained all my kids on the regular toilet without an insert or anything, so I was interested to see what would happen when I offered this foreign plastic seat as a place to do her business. Without even blinking she sat on it and peed all in the back hatch of my mom's car. And I wonder why people look at me like I'm nuts... I didn't want the pee sloshing around in the potty obviously, so I had no choice but to dump the pee in the woods outside their driveway. Sorry nice garage sale people!!

Boo actually thought that peeing in a plastic seat in the back of a car was pretty freeing and repeatedly asked to go. I didn't want to deny her and I was even starting to get used to the funny look that people give you when they realize what your adorable toddler is doing in the back of the car, but I was fearing what would happen if she decided to do more than pee.

I got the chance pretty quickly after that, but it wasn't very much and I could just collect it in a baby wipe for disposal. Plus she did it at these pissy ladies' house where they wanted 50% off the cover price for books- at a GARAGE SALE. Please... even my toddler knows what to 'say' to that.

I didn't get a ton of stuff and we seemed to be those people that cleared out the free box and didn't buy anything at a few of the sales, but overall the day went well. The kids and I had a blast and we got some cheap items to boot.

Next time you see a crazy lady with unbrushed hair with a cute toddler pooping in the back of her van pull over and say hi- I love talking with my adoring fans!

Ha! You sound JUST like us!! We bring our potty in the car {hello, 6 hour car ride last week} and just pull over on the side of the road. Luckily we've been able to be mostly discreet.

Oh, the joys.
