Message to a stranger who gave my 3 year old a bracelet in the McDonald’s bathroom

With a toddler in tow, even the simplest of daily tasks can prove challenging. With her favorite word no, her favorite food ice cream, and her favorite hobby tantrums, it’s a wonder parents survived those years at all.

Among the many challenges a 3-year-old brings, trips to a public restroom might top the list.
Those hypersensitive flushing sensors are enough to spook a fully grown adult (or maybe just me) — so for a little tot, that watery blast can be downright traumatizing.

Tiffany Miller found herself in exactly this predicament when she stopped to use a McDonald’s restroom with her daughter in Salina, Kansas. They still had quite a long drive home to Wichita, and Mom knew her toddler needed to go to the bathroom to avoid having to relieve herself in the car later. We all know that a 3-year-old’s bladder doesn’t wait.

But too scared that the toilet would flush while she was on it, the little girl refused to go.
That’s when a stranger noticed the situation and decided to lend Mom a hand with a bracelet, a mini Snickers bar, and a little creative kindness.

Tiffany’s viral Facebook post has now inspired thousands of moms in their own right. Read below her heartfelt message to this bathroom angel in disguise:

To the woman in the Salina, KS McDonald’s bathroom:
You heard me arguing with a 3 year old about going to the bathroom.

You heard me tell her we had a long drive home and she needed a potty. You heard her tell me she was afraid the toilet would flush while she was sitting on it. I couldn’t convince them that I would block the sensor and prevent that. She promised she could keep it and not pee in the car.

Then you stepped in. You told her you would give her a bracelet if she went potty for Mommy. She perked up and agreed. I turned to potty her quickly (before she changed her mind). You told her that the bracelet would be waiting for her in front of the booth. I turned to say thank you, but you were already gone.

Outside the stand were a bracelet and a mini Snickers bar.
Her eyes lit up as she put the bracelet on after using the bathroom.
We made it safely home to Wichita and she’s currently sound asleep next to me…she’s still wearing the bracelet.

Thank you for your kindness! I wish I could have thanked you personally, but maybe you see that. If not, hopefully it inspires someone to be as kind as you.
