Before we close out September, I want to give a special thank you to the mother who made the news this month and, in the process, made me feel like I wasn’t doing that bad of a job as a parent. 
Thank you to Utah’s Potty Training Mom who brought her twin toddlers and her toddlers’ potties to a restaurant — and let her children sit on the toilets while they ate. As a fellow diner described, "She had to undo the jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties."
I like you, Potty Training Mom. I like you the way I used to like all of the parents on Supernanny. You just make ME feel better about what I’m doing and for that I say thank you. The next time I’m having one of those I-Feel-Like-A-Shitty-Parent Moments, I’m going to think of you and your shitty parenting moment. And, I’m going to be glad that  my moment is a figurative one.
