Yellow Snow Goes Mobile
Choosing ‘when’ a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 year old is gonna pee, or have their bowel rumble, cramp, and inevitably pop out the nastiest smell you’ve ever smelled, is not a parent’s choice.
Common conversations (and, not in a sweet voice, either) in the confines of the car include:
I have more stories than the confines of this workspace will allow, as it relates to times we’ve pulled over (or didn’t pull over, err…. and made the kids hop in the trunk to do-their-business while on an 11 hour car ride). All you need to know – that I know – is:
A. If you don’t have a porta-potty in your trunk, I know you’ve seriously considered it
B. There are too many of you out there who probably would deny having one
C. Yes, admittedly it’s disgusting… but I guess that’s my punishment for overpopulating the world with my 4 kids. I don’t have a choice 9 times outta ten (there is ZERO chance in H-E-double-hockeysticks that I would schlep a 20 month old, 3 year old, 5 year old and 6 year old into the sketchiest gas station on the east coast JUST because my son refused to take a whiz before a long car ride)
D. Don’t judge me for doing it… Just know I spend about 4-5 hours daily in the car. No, I’m not kidding
- You’re darn lucky I didn’t show you a bird’s eye view of the above trunk or porta-potty… as it was filled with urine and wipies from my almost 7 year old’s pee… and, from 10 days ago (THANK God it’s been cold out). I forgot! Shoot me. Gross, I admit it… got lots on my mind, ladies and gentlemen.
Oh, wait… look what I just found!! Which is more gross? My tactic or that? (PS – I do insert a disposable bag, and then dump it in a garbage can outside of Target or the grocery store ). I have less clean up than My Pee-Pee Bottle. Who’s the sucker? Hmm….
C’mon, I want to know your story… do you travel-with-toilet? … If not, lemme guess, you have two or less children? I didn’t travel with above commode until I popped out a 3rd. Birth control, I guess.
