I wouldn’t be here writing this blog if it wasn’t for one of the most humiliating moments of my life so I thought I’d share it with you and hopefully inspire someone out there. It just goes to show that you literally never know when inspiration might strike and what road it might set you on when it does. While out shopping with my eldest child George, now 13 (where does the time go?!), then two, he suddenly announced the need to go to the potty NOW! I quickly whipped the potty out from under his buggy without thinking through the next stage. After a very successful potty stop (!) I was left with the immediate dilemma of where to dispose of the potty’s contents in a busy shopping centre. Nightmare! I opted for what I thought was a relatively discreet street gutter but was roundly and publicly told off by another shopper. Needless to say hot tears followed (both mine and George’s!) and our shopping trip was stopped dead in its tracks. I decided there had to be a better way. As soon as I got home I started sketching a travel potty that was both comfy for kids and could discreetly and effectively store its contents. The rest as they say is history! So next time you have a genuine light bulb moment, don’t just dismiss it as a moment of madness. Act on it! You never know where it might take you!
