So here's the deal. I have 3 kids that go potty now 4.5yr old twins, an almost 3 yr old and then I have a very independent almost 1.5 yr old.

Once we have all done our business and it is time to wash hands is when I really run into trouble. Not one of my kids can reach the sink. Even if I turn on the water they still can't touch it. I must lift each child to wash their hands. During this process I clean 1 or 2 kids and then find out that as I am lifting number 3 or 4 to wash his/her hands, the first two have now touched disgusting things in the bathroom and I am now back to square one. I do try to wash in order of most reliable which is Reagan first. But the next 3 are pretty much guaranteed to touch something and with my back turned I catch them after the fact.

I try to be relaxed about it and I will just grab some hand sanitizer if I can find it in my bag, but I wish there was a way to actually leave the bathroom with 4 clean kids?

lol oh dear!! Lacey has only been potty trained for 5 weeks.. i dislike going out even more now as between her and Rhianna they are always needed to go to the toilet and Lacey especially is not very good at holding it in, and we are rushing around trying to get to a toilet before she pee herself and she usually announces she needs to pee when we are in the middle of a shop
..together for 12 years..
