Bathroom dilemas...with your children

Yeah it's friday and I was able to get a nap in-since Brooke has been sleeping alot today. And ofcourse eating when she's not, I think she is going through a growth spurt. Amber has been very good with the potty training, I go out frequently-and when she has to go she tells me she's stinky. The first time she said this, I was afraid she had already had an accident until we got to the restroom to find she hadn't gone yet. So her keywords for needing to go are "Potty chair?" yes it's a question, and "I'm stinky mama". And thus far no accidents and she's gone about 6 times while we've been out. So I read a funny story about a rushing to the bathroom incident on a friends website the other day telling how she followed her lightning fast daughter into the restroom with her other two small children in tow, to find out they had mistakenly gone into the mens bathroom ...it made me laugh. I just wanted to know what funny bathroom stories/experiences you have to share as I always enjoy being entertained by how crazy life gets when you become a parent. Here is mine-not really funny but it's the only one I have of this nature...
So whitney had been constipated for like two weeks-i know painful..we went to the dr. twice and the emergency room and they all swore she only had a virus until one clinic actually took xrays and found out what the problem was. She told me to go get some childrens laxative and give it to her and it would work in about a day or two. Lets just say that it decided to work while we were at our wards 24th of July celebration that was at someone's house in our ward. We were in the bathroom for about 10 minutes cleaning out her system..(you can only imagine the smell after two weeks of holding it in) She had gone a little in her underwear-so those had to come off. She had worn a dress and was so afraid that people would laugh at her because she didn't have on any panties-as if she would be displaying for everyone to know I quickly gathered up amber and we headed home on that note.

This bathroom story isn't mine, it's a friend of mine. His son is learning how to potty train, and he's got the #1 down, but has had trouble with the #2. Well one day he comes up to his dad, and said he was poopy, so the dad was like "oh man, he's in underwear, what a mess" HE looks and he sees a diaper. Turns out, the little boy knew he had to go poopy, so he goes and puts on a diaper, and goes!!

hmmm, I don't really have a public bathroom story, but I do have a horrible potty training story- Claire was a terror to train- TERROR! A few days before I had Morgan, Claire changed into her swimsuit to dance around the house. At some point she had to go pooh, but she didn't really make it, she soiled her swimsuit, took it off, tries to wipe up the mess, danced around her bedroom naked while still going pooh, all over the bedroom! When I found her I started crying, especially since we had just had our carpets professionally cleaned the week before!

oh brooke-soo sorry. A funny thing that helped us potty train amber was that i would dump her diaper in the toilet and we would say goodbye to her pooh...she still waves at the toilet and says "bye bye poo poo" whenever she goes #2.

Arin- We are in the middle of potty training Abby right now. She likes the dump the pooh out of the diaper in to the toilet trick too. She says "Bye bye stinky" and flushes the toilet. Just trying to teach her that is where it is supposed to go and it makes it fun for her. She also likes to cheer for other people when they go. She stands outside the door and says, "Stinky momma....Yea momma! Bye stinky!"
