There are few things more challenging or embarrassing than dealing with diarrhea on a 12-hour road trip.
Now imagine adding a 4-year-old girl into the mix, and you’re really in for a treat. Clint Edwards, the author of No Idea What I’m Doing: a Daddy Blog, ran into precisely this dilemma in the middle of “nowhere Oregon” on his way to a family funeral. Just two hours into the trip, “the diarrhea struck,” he details in his viral Facebook post.
He had no choice but to take his 4-year-old with him as he made a b-line to the bathroom — and the events that ensued were nothing short of HILARIOUS.
Between his poop-cheerleading daughter on one side of him and a man trying to hold back tears of laughter on the other, Clint couldn’t help but share his mortifying yet hysterical bathroom saga with the world. Check out his post in full below:
“We stopped at a gas station in nowhere Oregon, two hours into a 12 hour road trip to a family funeral, when the diarrhea struck. My wife and two older kids were in the van, while I was inside looking for cornflakes with my 4yo.
We b-lined into the restroom, making it just in time. I had no choice but to take my 4yo into the stall with me. Aspen watched as I struggled, Moana light-up crocs on the wrong feet, blue eyes wide and supportive, hands clapping. ‘Good job, Daddy! Good job! You make two poops! Now three poops! I’m four!’
