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.

Those poor girls now will have a messed up view of privacy...thanks MOM! What the heck is she thinking, to save her self the trouble she will just keep them on the seats...?! OK  as a mother of a one year old and a two year old I gotta say, they rarely do the doody at the dinner table and if they do have to go they already have more decency than this women and tell me they have to go to the potty, I mean really give those poor girls a chance, would she like to sit naked in a restaurant? Bad parenting....

when my toddler needs to go to the bathroom at a restaurant and we are still potty training, we go to the bathroom like everyone else.... you can't teach them that it's ok to just go to the potty wherever they want, there is a place for that.. in the bathroom!
