We were at Lowe's the other day picking up a few things for the big project we are currently working on in our house. My 2 year old, Emily, is currently in the middle of potty training and it actually doing really well with it.
We had been in the store for awhile so I decided to take Emily to the bathroom to at least try to go. So we head in and she tries but does not go. No big deal, just glad we tried. We are heading back to find her Daddy when she finds the toilets and sinks that are used for display! She gets all excited and tells me that she has to go potty and that she wants to wash her hands! Yikes. I try to explain to her that they are not working and she can't go potty in them. She was not really happy with that answer and continues to insist that she wants to use the display toilet. By now people are smiling and laughing at her, because she is so darn cute! I had to lift up the toilet seat and turn on the sink to show her that they are not "real" in order to finally convince her to head back to the real restroom.
This will be a fun story to tell her boyfriend someday! =)
