Legitimate complaints about the toilet

My daughter had a tantrum this weekend when told that she had to try to use the bathroom before leaving the house.

Amongst her complaints:

  1. There's nothing to do but sit there.
  2. It's not my favorite thing to do.
  3. I don't want to wash my hands because that's not fun either.

Tough to argue with the logic.


I proposed that we place a book or two in the bathroom to keep her occupied while she is sitting there. She’s in kindergarten, but there are plenty of books that she can read.

Her response:

“Are you crazy? Read on the potty. That’s ridiculous.”
