Have You Heard About the Clorox Lounge and The Last Comic Sitting Contest? Read on to Learn How You Could Win $10,000 -- And, Don't Forget to Share Your Child's Funniest Bathroom Moments With Me

I partnered again with SocialMoms in an effort to help spread the word about the launch of the Clorox Lounge and their Last Comic Sitting Competition and Sweepstakes.  As part of their campaign, they asked me what the funniest thing my child has ever done in the bathroom.  I laughed when I read this as, I had two recent experiences which stood out.  The first, which happened when we were using a public restroom at a restaurant, occurred just the other day.  We had gone out to eat, and I ended up having to take Savannah to the restroom to change her diaper.  If you have read my previous posts, then you know that we have been working on potty training her.  As part of training, we taught her to fan or pinch her nose and say "PU" when she needed a diaper change, or was going to the bathroom.  This has come in handy, as there have been times when I haven't been able to get Savannah on the potty, as I was either feeding or changing her little sister.  We told Savannah that if she smelled something, it was safe to assume she had gone #2.  So, back to the restaurant.  While we were waiting in line to enter a stall, Savannah kept looking around intently.  I didn't know what she was doing, but let her look around, while I waited for a stall to open.  As a lady was leaving a stall, Savannah pointed to her, yelled "Mommy" so that everyone could hear, and proceeded to fan her nose and say "PU," all while pointing at the lady.  Then, she followed up by saying a phase I hadn't heard until that time, "diaper change."  My face turned beet red, as I tried to hush Savannah and put her pointing finger down.  But, like most children, she continued to say "PU" and "diaper change."  The poor lady, who had all the attention turned on her, didn't know what to say, and walked out quietly.  I felt so bad, and it only made it worse, when we left the restroom and returned to our table.  The lady who Savannah pointed out in the bathroom, was sitting at the table next to us.  And, for the rest of the dinner, Savannah sat there and smiled and waved to her.  Now, I believe them when people say that children say the darnedest things.  Savannah had so much fun, while making myself and this innocent women feel embarrassed.

And, the second occasion, which occurred at home, happened just days after we began potty training Savannah.  Family and friends have told me to keep the door open and let Savannah see me going potty, so that she learns the potty is where you do your business.  So, one day I put Savannah on her Elmo floor potty, and then got called away by her fussing sister.  Usually, I would sit with her for 10-15 minutes waiting for her to go.  During that time, she would fan through her books that I left next to the potty.  She was so into one of her books, that she didn't want to get off the potty.  I told her I would be right back.  While changing her sister's diaper, my husband came home from work, really having to go the bathroom (#2 thankfully), and quickly ran to our bathroom, where the Elmo potty was set up in the corner.  Because my husband was in a rush, he didn't notice Savannah sitting there reading a book.  That was, until she said, "Hi Daddy," and passed him a book to read.  Again, another moment, where a parent, this time my husband, was embarrassed, as the last thing he expected was to see Savannah sitting on the potty next to him.  Now, my husband makes a b-line for the guest bathroom whenever he is in a rush and needs to go.
