Our church has potties in the kids class rooms that are just their size. They really are the cutest things I'm sure most of you have seen one somewhere but for those of you who haven't they are little. The look exactly like the public potties we use but really small. Less than a foot off the ground.
As we were arriving at school the other day, Beck tells me he needs to potty. I took him as soon as we got in there so that his teachers wouldn't have to and to make sure he didn't touch anything gross. He gets the job done perfectly and then tells me that he needs to flush it. I didn't really like the idea of him flushing because there are tons of germs on the flusher to me and I'd rather him not get them on him but I thought well it is church and first thing in the morning surely they can't be too bad. Plus he has to learn things like that. Well he proceeds to lift his foot as high as he can and flushes it with his foot. I cracked up. He looked ridiculous and it occurred to me that he really thinks that is how you are supposed to flush potties in public because he has only ever seen me flush them and that is what I do. I never told him to do that or that it was how you are supposed to do that he just learned from watching.
Needless to say I am happy that he did it that way. And I hope he continues to flush with his foot. I did realize that I need to watch my actions a little more closely because he is picking up on a little more than I realize.
