A Lesson in Boundaries
After running through the entirety of the garden and shoving his face full of snacks, Big E had to use the facilities.
As I debated with Big E the merits of standing while going to the bathroom, he informed me this was a more serious visit. He was going to have a BM.
Side note. This kid LOVES to poop in public. I'd rather turn my system toxic than do it, but not Big E. He is all about it!
I got him all set up and removed myself from the stall as Big E requested privacy.
I stood on the other side of the door and held it close.
In walked a mom and her two elementary school aged children. They were all talking and Big E caught on fast that there were other kids in the restroom.
Big E yelled out his most enthusiastic greeting from atop the throne.
I quickly shushed him and managed a weak smile at the mom.
OPEN THE DOOR SO I CAN TALK TO THEM!
Unfortunately it had to be in the middle of a public restroom, but Big E and I had a nice little talk about boundaries.
Perfect strangers are not interested in a face-to-face chat with you while you take a dump. It's just rude and weird.
I'm hoping this will be the last of the random public bathroom conversations.
