TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (KNN) – A Vigo County three-year-old who is well on his way to having less potty time accidents has started to pee standing up…but at only one restaurant.
Chris Essex is Alex’s dad. He said before a trip to the town’s Children’s Museum a few weeks ago, he took his son to use the restroom at Steak and Shake.
“He saw the urinal and was wondering what it was. I told him its something to stand-up and go potty in. While he didn’t use the urinal…he did stand up to potty in the one in the stall,” Chris said.
Every other time at every other location, Alex reportedly sits down to pee. But during a follow-up trip to Steak and Shake, Alex demanded to use the bathroom, standing up.
“It’s kind of funny. You can tell he feels like such a big boy when he gets done. He even wants to wash his hands, as opposed to us telling him to,” Chris said.
Parents say they aren’t in a big hurry to get him to stand-up, that they are just happy he’s using the potty.
