There is nothing like hearing the words, “I want to go potty,” from your still-inconsistent, potty-training toddler while you are stuck in the car. There’s panic, pleading, bargaining, and the ultra-thin thread of hope that she won’t pee before you make it to your destination.
Sometimes repeating yourself helps. “Don’t pee. Don’t pee in your underwear. Don’t pee.”
Sometimes she responds with, “I already did pee in my underwear.”
Game over. Gross.
