Back Up Plan

I have always refused to step into one of these, until we were at the park last week and I was left with no other option with my 3yr olds. And due to a much expected, terrible, disgusting, wanted to hose us all down with lysol, experience in here, one thing is clear...
I need a back up plan.

But since I have 5 of these:


And not even one of these:
(love that this little guy always wants his cowboy boots on, even when he is rock climbing)


"Going" behind a bush is not an option for my 5 loves. So I put in an order for this:

This thing is called a Potette, and appears to be the answer to my potty problems at the park.

Small and compact?!
Removable liners?!
Anything other than the porta potty!?
I'll take it!

Check out the website, it has great reviews, and is a great price! Here's hoping it works!

I need to check that out! Honestly, one of my fears when the twins are completely potty trained is public restrooms... I HATE THEM! This is good to know!

I wanted a girl so much when I was pregnant after I had my two boys. But one thing was gnawing at me- and that's the potty business.

And I got my girl, and I'm already worrying about it. (She's 7 months. LOL)
What do you do when you are out and about but not in a park? If I'm taking a walk with the boys, they just use the nearest tree.
I can't see myself pulling out one of the potty things on a busy avenue or a residential street.

GAMZu, I probably wouldn't pull this out on the side of the road while on a walk. But it seems like it will be great for the park, which we frequent a lot. I might however use it at a truck stop on a long drive??? We'll see :).
