Potty-Training Mom Apologizes to the Stranger Who Had Her Toddler's 'Whole Poo' Rolled at Her

If there's one thing that most parents can agree on, it's that potty-training a toddler is pretty much a sh*tshow. The accidents, false alarms, poop- and pee-filled laundry, and public embarrassments almost make you want to quit and break out the diapers again. But once you're done, it's completely worth it. However, before one mom could make it through to the end of this stage, her daughter had an epic moment in a public bathroom, and as this mom now tries to track down the stranger to apologize, other parents don't know whether to laugh or cry.


The hysterical encounter began when Louise Isaac -- who was out shopping with her 2-year-old, Mila -- heard her toddler suddenly announce, "I have pooed." The London mom initially panicked after remembering that she left the diaper bag in the car, but she quickly got the girl to a public bathroom. Of course, there was no baby-changing area, so they squeezed into a stall.

"As I pulled down her jeans, I was trying to pull the pull-up down really carefully, and I didn't realize how much she had pooed," Louise told the Plymouth Harold. "As I was pulling it down the poo just fell out, and because her back was to the adjoining cubicle that is how it rolled under. It just went on the floor."

The fresh dropping ended up rolling into the next stall, which was occupied when the surprise arrived. "I was like 'oh no!' and I was grabbing for it and I said 'sorry!' to the person next door. It can't be nice having a poo coming into your cubicle."

However, Louise didn't think that her first apology was enough for her toddler's accident, so she took to social media with a sense of humor to let this stranger know just how sorry she was about it. "If you were in a toilet cubicle in the Plymouth city market about 2pm this afternoon, minding your own business and suddenly a whole poo rolled under your door and then a frantic hand followed trying to find it and roll it back, I do apologize, potty training a 2-year-old and it's not going well," she wrote on Facebook and shared with The Unmumsy Mum.

The post has since gone viral as fellow moms share their own potty-training poo horror stories:
