All mothers will know that difficult moment with their children when they refuse to followers orders, no matter how hard you try.
While in many situations having a stranger give their two cents is the last thing that a mother wants to hear when she is frustrated, but in this case, it was exactly what she needed.
In a Kansas McDonald’s, a stranger overheard a mother named Tiffany Miller trying to reason with her toddler to go to the bathroom before heading on their journey home. The 3-year-old kept fighting Miller on it, leaving her increasingly frustrated.
The daughter told her mom how she was terrified that the toilet would suck her in when it flushed but despite Tiffany promising to not let it flush while she was on it, she wouldn’t go.
The toddler then promised her mother that she would make it through the drive home without needing the bathroom.
It was at this point that the stranger had been listening in and decided to help the mother out. After the situation had been played out, Tiffany took to Facebook to tell her followers what had happened.
In a letter directed at the stranger, Tiffany wrote, “You told her you would give her a bracelet if she would go potty for Mommy. She perked up and agreed, I turned to quickly put her on the potty (before she changed her mind). You told her the bracelet would be waiting outside the stall for her. I turned to say thank you, but you were already gone.”
As the toddler finished in the bathroom, the stranger had kept to her word and Tiffany recalled,”Her eyes lit up as she put the bracelet on after using the bathroom, we made it home to Wichita safely and she is currently sleeping soundly next to me . . . still wearing the bracelet.”
Unfortunately, the anonymous woman had already left before they got out of the stall.
Nevertheless, Miller was incredibly grateful for her act of kindness and wrote, “I wish I could have thanked you in person, but maybe you will see this. If not, hopefully it inspires someone else to be kind like you were.”
