Public restrooms are terrible when you are a parent. The stuff of nightmares. Chances are that before having kids you never thought very hard about the restroom you frequented when out in public.

I see that I clearly suck at potty training my kids. Because inside the bathroom sits the unflushed toilet, the all-too-dry towel, and toilet paper squares spread all over the floor. Again.My potty-trained children are five and a half years old and still many of the finishing touches of potty training escape them.
