LEHI, Utah (CBS Las Vegas) — A woman catches a mother potty training her two daughters at the dining table of a Utah restaurant.
Kimberly Decker posted on her blog this week a photo of a toddler sitting on a potty training toilet at the Thanksgiving Point Deli in Lehi.
“While we sat down to have lunch, I noticed this young Mother was potty training her two twin daughters at the table. It didn’t quite register at first what was happening, but when I took a second glance I realized this is NOT OK! I decided to snap a picture of the whole incident and then later that afternoon as a ‘joke’ I decided to post it on Facebook. I couldn’t believe the response I got,” she wrote.
A local television station picked up the story, and Decker explained how she initially thought the “seats” the kids were sitting in were booster seats. She was stunned when she realized they were actually toilets.
“She had to undo the jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties,” Decker explained to KSL-TV.
She posted the picture on Facebook, but was taken down by the social media site after the photo went viral.
Erica Brown, a spokeswoman for Thanksgiving Point Deli, told the station that they received several complaints over the incident.
“I think state and local health codes were probably an issue, as well as just social norms,” Brown told KSL.
The identities of the mother and children have not been revealed.
