So. Turns out that she and a friend were fighting over who could use it, and she decided to stand on the rim while the other girl was trying to sit. Teagan may have had her pants down, I’m not sure. Anyway, the other girl was pushing back on Teagan, trying to sit down and Teagan lost her balance. On her way down, she scraped her leg on the toilet paper holder and one foot ended up in the bowl.
A huge scrape. Bigger than a Disney bandaid. One that the director felt I needed to be forewarned about, just in case I freaked out when I saw the gauze on my daughter’s leg.
At first she didn’t want to tell the teachers what happened, she was worried she’d get in trouble.
Eventually she “fessed up” and told the teacher about the need to be the one to use that particular toilet, what she did and how she scraped her leg. Both girls were spoken to, but neither got in trouble or were yelled at.
On the ride home, Stu asked her why she did it. She replied that she thought it was a good idea. This is probably the first time she’s given an actual answer and not just said “I don’t know.”
Our baby is getting so big. So grown up.
It would be nice if she didn’t stand on toilet seats any more though.
