I'm one of those germ freaks when it comes to public places and runny noses and that sort of stuff. I use paper towels to turn the water off and open the door from the public bathroom; oh, and I flush with my foot, too.
I create quite the scene when Garrett has to go in the public bathroom with me, which involves him placing both hands on the cart, or stroller, or my knees and a lot of, "Don't touch anything" comments. I even turn both children's faces away from the toilet when I flush in case there is any "spray" that comes out with the "whoosh."
I normally always use the second stall of the public restroom when available, thinking that most people would use the first. But, it occured to me today: What if everyone else thinks that too? What if I'm using THE MOST CONTAMINATED STALL IN THE WHOLE ROOM?
So, here comes the curiosity: Which stall do you use? I'll be potty-training soon, and gotta know which one to take my son into. Are you a second-stall-user?
On the same note, I bought Garrett a travel potty today to keep in the van (with my free $25 gift card from USA Baby here ). Apparently, my OCD about germs has not rubbed off on him yet because this is what I found this afternoon:
Yes, that's the new travel potty!
