Every mom has experienced it: You’re out with your kids and suddenly a little voice says, “Mom, I gotta go to the bathroom, right now.” You immediately switch to high alert on the hunt for the nearest facilities. You’ve seen the horror scenes left by kids who didn’t make it, and nobody wants to be “that mom.”
Usually this happens in the car or a place where the restrooms are either crowded, locked, or are in no way accessible in under 30 seconds. However, in our experience, Apple Stores are usually located at a mall, and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that 100% of malls have public restrooms. So we can only wonder why this mom in China felt compelled to have her son pull down his pants and pee into a cup in the middle of the sale floor.
Beijing Cream reports that there’s a new trend in China of letting your child pee in the streets, so maybe it’s part of that movement. While we have absolutely no idea why this happened, we’re going to have to err on the side of non-judginess and figure that this mom probably had her reasons.
Full disclosure: I may have recently handed my son an empty water bottle while riding the Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland while his bladder was at it’s absolute limit. Fortunately, he didn't have to use it, but hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go, and sometimes it pays for moms to be prepared.
