Because you have to laugh

Last night, I took BG to the bathroom in a restaurant.  It had been a long day, and I was feeling stressed and emotional and a little resentful because I just wanted to eat my dinner.  But she was doing so well, and I was proud of her for telling me she had to go, so I pretended to be cheerful.

As she was sitting on the toilet, someone went into the stall next to us.

"Mommy, there's another kid in here, peeing just like I am."

"Well maybe, honey.  It could be a kid.  Or it could be a grownup."

"Or it COULD be a kid."

The woman in the stall next to us cracked up laughing, flushed the toilet, and click clacked her heels to the sink to wash her hands.

"Mommy, there's a grown up in here."

"Yes, honey."

"The kid turned into a grown up!"

  1. deep thoughts happen in the most unexpected places, don't they?

  2. ha...what a cutie. Wonder if I could go into a stall and turn back into a kid again?

  3. This is so adorable. Skeeter is also a fan of providing the running commentary in public restrooms. I love it. You have to laugh.
