If you have small children, you know the pain of putting your child in the bath only to have them say they have to go to the potty. Sometimes they don’t say it and just go in the tub. That also sucks.
Are they still getting clean if there is pee in the bathtub? I vote yes. The ratio of pee to water is totally acceptable in my books.
Poop is an entirely different story. Once the poop has entered the bath water, the water is completely contaminated. Poop infected bath water must be drained, the tub cleansed, and then re-filled. It is a big pain in the ass that I would do almost anything to avoid.
Which is why, one balmy evening in the bathroom, when my son said ‘Mommy I have to poo,” I reached out and caught the poop before it landed in the bath water.
That was my shining moment, my bath time save, the most amazing bath time save ever! And I hope I never have to do it again.
