Mom Potty Trains Twin Toddlers ... at Restaurant Table! (VIDEO)

OMG 121

potty trainingPotty-training is no picnic. I have never met a mother who enjoyed the process. In fact, it is the one thing most of us appreciate unsolicited advice about.

Though, one Utah mom could have cared less what anyone thought when she decided to potty-train her twin girls at a restaurant -- in full view of other diners. Talk about an appetite killer.

Most of us stick close to home during that short but crucial period when our toddlers are figuring out when they need to go. Mother of three, Kimberly Decker, who witnessed the incident, says she didn't venture out for several days while her son potty-trained. So imagine her shock when she sat down to a nice meal and watched as this incredibly inconsiderate mom stripped her kids down in the middle of the dining area and plopped them on portable potty seats that were perched atop chairs.

"They were sitting on what I thought were booster seats," Decker said. After doing a double-take, she realized -- to her horror -- what was really going down. "She had to undo the jumpsuits and take them all the way down," she said. "They were completely nude with the jumpsuits down to their ankles, eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties."

Decker snapped a photo of the bizarre scene as she and a friend looked on in total shock. Apparently diner staff didn't notice what was going on but a spokeswoman said they received several complaints and that this probably violated health codes. No kidding! That is the last thing I want to see as I munch my roast chicken and swig down a fountain soda.

I just don't understand some people. Parenthood is both a right and a privilege, but that doesn't mean you can do whatever the hell you want. This was so not OK. This mom should have just stayed at home.

Do you think this mom was wrong for potty-training her kids in public?

Ew. That is disgusting. What is wrong with that mom? Was the father there? Why didn't he say anything?

Like this yes. What a jerk and god forbid anyone say anything to her, she may come unglued! These photos say that, crazy mom thinking she can do whatever she wants.

I certainly see what you mean about an appetite killer and was initially shocked, but then I thought there's not much difference between that and if a baby or toddler sat there and went to the bathroom in their diaper which is obviously what they do. So it's a potty under them instead of a diaper,big deal.

Yeah, but the difference is, we can't see and choose not to imagine what their doing in their diapers...toilets at a table? Even at home, this would be disgusting...some people have no shame...

Who pulls their kids clothes off in the middle of a restaurant? What a complete lack of common sense.

@ Curious- if you don't see this as a big deal I feel sorry for you.  I'm not a person to come unglued about certain situations but a lot of moms have I don't care attitude.  This is disgusting.  The restaurant could have been fined or shut down.  Let's use our God given common sense sometimes.
