ava and me in a public restroom

ava: i want to go in that one!

me: okay, but DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING.




me: Ava! I said, DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!!

Ava: O-KAY!

me: Ava, don't touch anything.

Ava: there are other people going potty in here. i can hear them going potty.


Ava: Mom? I can hear them going potty.


Ava: Pewww! I can smell them going potty! it smells bad! gross! ewww! gross! Peeewwww! yucky!

me: Don't touch anything.

ava: I think that person went poopy. it's gross to smell it.

me: Don't touch anything. AVA! DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!

ava: Sorry, mom!

Do I really need to end this post with the following? sometimes i really wish we were still in diapers. especially when i'm crouched down in the beach public restrooms that stink to high heaven, i have seth strapped to my back and he is doing everything short of killing me to touch the toilet paper roll.

yeah, those days when i simply stuck ava in the trunk to wrestle her out of that nasty old diaper and into a fresh new one? loved it. LOVED IT. i just didn't know it yet. seths' going to be old enough to go to the bathroom unattended before i let him put on those big boy pants. because frankly, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.

The good things are that boys pee standing up (a major blessing for moms everywhere), and that most women don't care if a mom brings her little boy into the women's restroom. Declan was waaaay easier in that department than Greer is.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, my friend!
