leaky adj. [Fr. permitting liquid to escape]: Description used for children who have reached the shaky, near-completion of potty training. In short, they are accidents waiting to happen. Because the instinctual act of relieving oneself is not yet instinctual, their parents must constantly remind them to use the bathroom. Leaky children should always be reminded to empty their bladders before embarking on car rides or other excursions. Additionally, when visiting friends, they should sit on bare floors rather than sofas because a shallow pool of pee on an upholstered couch can turn up unannounced faster than you can say, “Uh oh.”
