Nobody knows about lack of privacy more than parents. Forget about showering in peace, working in peace and yes, even going to the bathroom in peace. Clint Edward’s, author of the parenting blog ‘No Idea What I’m Doing: A Daddy Blog,” shared one of his more public bathroom parenting experiencing in a recent Facebook post.
The dad of three was two hours into a family road trip when ‘diarrhea struck.’ He was with his four-year-old in a gas station and had no choice but to bring her along to the bathroom. As Edward’s struggled with his bowels, his daughter proved herself to be the “Richard Simmons of pooping.” She cheered on her dad with words of affirmation such as “You’re trying so hard!” and shouting “You’re doing it, Daddy! You’re doing it!” It occurred to the father later, that she was channeling him and his wife’s method of potty training through encouraging phrases. Still, the dad has since dubbed his daughter the “world’s most wonderful cheerleader,” supporting him through everything from using the restroom to eating his vegetables.
Clint loves sharing stories about his kids. He started his blog during a lull in a different writing project and by the end of the year had written for the New York Times, the Washington Post and been featured on Good Morning America. The father of three just published a book titled “I’m Sorry…Love, Your Husband.” His favorite part of being a dad? “I’m just in it for the snuggles.”
